Whenever we are in town we enjoy a meal here at Tlaquepaque. Food fresh and deeply layered flavors. Currently I'm not doing carbs, so enjoyed beef fajitas and veggies without the rice, beans or tortillas. It was super delicious and satisfying. Try a little of everything when coming in with a group and then share. It is a fun and... More

Placentia is an older city in Orange County. Although it is modern now, Tlaquepaque Restaurant is a gem in Old Town Placentia. This is a must stop if you love Mexican food. The prices are excellent for the food you get. The portions are not oversized and the service is very good. We were a large party of 9 and... More

Located in the Old Town section of Placentia. It's been there since the 1960's and always worth stopping by for really good and authentic Mexican food. The menu offers lots of choices and prices are reasonable. Restaurant is very clean and customer service was excellent. The cheese enchiladas with rice & beans did not disappoint.

My wife and I stopped by Tlaquepaque and it was less than desirable. The employees didn't seem to know what was going on with the orders and the scene was very chaotic. The food was skimpy and the quality needs improvement. The restaurant also didn't feel very clean

Food tastes wonderfully authentic! Ambiance is casual and friendly. But the prices are a bit on the high side. The margaritas will make you forget how much the meal costs!

This place has great food! The kitchen is very clean and very friendly staff. It's family owned and a nice place to spend an afternoon.

We stopped by for a quick lunch and were very pleasantly surprised by this establishment. It reminded me of many places we have dined in old Mexico. The restaurant was clean and neat, the service was attentive and efficient, and the food certainly met our expectations ... Both from a taste and portion point-of-view. The entire lunch for 3 adults... More

Have enjoyed the atmosphere and food at Tlaquepaque since 1987! Very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere for a business lunch. Very attentive staff, good food, and great prices ! This place is definitely a winner.
