Hole in the wall Mexican restaurant not too far from Naval Base. The neighborhood was a little rough but the food was worth it. Even Gabriel Igelsias "Fluffy," eats there!! Husband had the ceviche and he said it was delicious.

We had plans to go to a few other places after a show, fortunately for us, the other places were full and we did not want to wait. We saw this Taqueria we had passed and decided to go for dinner. What a pleasant surprise! There were 6 of us but we were able to get right in and sit... More

I've visited Taqueria Guerrero more times than I can count and it never disappoints. Its a tiny hole in the wall, so don't expect anything fancy. The tacos de carne asada are perfectly seasond. The chorizo tacos are great. My fave is the shrimp ceviche, it is out of this world. Very fast service and reasonably priced!

I had various tacos that were all good, but the Chorizo was awesome. My buddy had the seafood soup which came in a huge bowl and he really enjoyed it. This was my first visit, but definitely not my last.
