When they first opened we went at least weekly :) Amazing food, super fresh and flavorful. They have mexican sodas as well as flavored waters like Horchata which is really delish. They serve alcohol too (margaritas, dos equis), the price is right, there is a...More

Wonderful experiences this month at this establishment! I had the grilled chicken burrito each time. First visit I skipped the beans and rice so it was not so juicy as the second visit. But OH so delicious flavors both ways to order! Large portions, so...More

Delicious food that reminds me of the Mexican food near the border. Generous portions. Lots of regulars. More choices on Fri/Sat. Worth the stop.

I love this place. It follows a similar premise to Chipotle in that you choose your meal style, meats and extras. It has the chains beat on one important detail- its family owned with authentic family recipes. I have never had a bad experience there....More

I go here every chance I get! It's our office favorite & we used to love Chipotle until we stumbled across Taqueria Olvera. You get SO much for the price & it's authentic Mexican. Can't go wrong with the grilled chicken nachos...unless it's the weekend...More

The Taqueria Olvera has a fantastic selection of tacos and burritos. We go there as a family at least twice a month. Always ask to look at the meat selection! You will not be disappointed! You have a choice of 30 or more items to...More

We visited Taquerias Olvera recently and although the food was pretty good, the entire visit was very confusing. Only one employee working was an English speaker and he was cooking. The cashier could not answer questions (in English) so we could not question prices or...More
