Found this location with our team. I dice into the red sauce and woo wee! It was spicy! I will be back to ease into the hot sauce. Service was walk up order outside and then pick up inside.

I've been coming to eat at this location for decades, it was my favorite Mexican restaurant. The quality of the food has been going down hill, and going down hill fast. On the weekends this would be the place to go to knowing that they are open 24 hours and also serving great food. The last couple of times I... More

So everyone always raves about this place so I wanted to enjoy it so bad. It was myself and my family. 2 adults, 2 teens. We got 3 burritos, 3 tacos, sope and nacho. The burritos were so small, the chips in the nachos were stale plus there was so little cheese and meat. The Sope and Tacos were fine.... More

We went there for lunch, and had order some Taco. The medium sauce was soso, but what really turn on the heat was the Hot sauce. He order 4 Chicken, but could only finish 3 of it due to the spiciness of the hot sauce. If you like it hot, go red not green.

Had the carne asada - all meat burrito from here with the red sauce. It is great, a little greasy if you are on a diet. The red sauce is hot. go for the green sauce if you can't handle spice. You can add rice, beans, cilantros, onions inside your burrito or go without.

Extra red salsa on those pastor tacos, please! The pastor tacos are the BOMB! The lengua tacos with the green salsa are so good that you'll regret not ordering more since you normally have to wait around fifteen minutes to order. My favorite King Taco location is the one on 3rd and Ford because when I was little we used... More

If you're there on a weekend, you can get a whole or half chicken with beans (frijoles de la olla), tortilla chips, corn tortillas, great salsa verde and the bird(s). You can also go in front of the building and grab an al pastor burrito, with everything, red sauce. Or a sope with carnitas. Or lengua... It's all good, and... More

No matter what location you are at the lines will be long. This location is open 24 hours which is always a super plus in my book. Well yes, they have very good tacos and normally I don't get other things from places that have their specialty in the name. Like King Taco, you should get TACOS, not anything else...but... More

Need a good street taco close to the 60 and 710? You can't beat King Taco. Even with construction on the 710, we make it to the King. Whether you eat indoors or take your food home, you won't be disappointed. Our usual orders are Carne asada or chicken tacos and sopes. The meat is seasoned so well you don't... More
