Loved the tacos and salsa. Disappointed that the last two times we've gone, the salsa tastes like cigarettes. Like litterally scrapping the bottom of a barrel. Waste of money since we ordered a large.

The salsa is so good and fresh. It is made in house every morning. We tried a variety of tacos all of which were very good. Steak taco was the best of all, but you really can't go wrong with any of them. Service was also great! We will definitely be back and will be buying salsa to go home... More

Really good authentic Mexican. We had al pastor, tongue, steak & steak fajitas tacos. Awesome! We also had a chimichanga which was one of the best we had. Only con is no liquor license so no margaritas 😕. We will definitely be back.

I have had tacos at many restaurants but the the tacos at TM are the best. Friendly service. Great food served hot! What else do you need. Try the Cochinita Pibil tacos!

Been coming here for many years and have introduced many others to their great food. clean place, real good service and great food. Doesn't look like much driving past but definitely worth checking out. I'd say best Mexican food in the area!

On our hunt to find the best Mexican in the area we had to try this spot. The food was amazon, the only thing i did not care for was their salsa that comes with the chips. I'm not a big fan of the smoky/ chard flavor. We definitely will be back

The Carne Asada is amazing. I know the meat is marinated for 24 hours. You can watch the food being prepared. We have recommended many people to this restaurant. Everyone of those people love the food as well.

Two years ago, while traveling throughout the Yucatan, we fell in love with a slow cooked pork dish known as cochinita pibil. Normally cooked in a pit, the pork is wrapped in banana leaves and slow-cooked for 12 hrs. We were thrilled to find it on a local menu. Taqueria Muniz does not cook theirs in banana leaves or in...

30-40 years ago the only Mexican restaurant in Aurora was Taco Bell. Today, places like Taqueria Muniz are found nearly on every street corner and strip mall. I've rated other Mexican restaurants on previous trips to Aurora yet I am no expert on this cuisine, but like any foodie I can distinguish "ordinary" from "passionate". Taqueria Muniz leans toward passionate... More
