I had some mixed tacos and a homemade flan. The flan is very good! The caramel was just right not too caramelizad or hard. Always a place to stop by for any of your antojitos mexicanos.

Wonderful food. Takes us right back to our Mexico trip a few years ago. These are the real Mexican tacos that are served there. The other great selling point is the bottles of Coca-Cola. Our kids love this place. Their hours are a bit shorter...More

Whenever I'm in Joplin I stop by for at least 3 soft tacos. Cheap too. Easy to find on old 66. Best in Mo.

The tacos here are unbeatable! Get the tongue. Trust me. Don't argue. Don't be a pansy and say "eeewwww, yucky!" Get them. Right now. Thank me later. They also have homemade horchata and Mexican cokes! Love me some Lalos!

Great variety of tacos and authentic Mexican food. Wish they would bring chips and salsa to the table once you order though. I also wish they had an option to make any meal a combo by adding beans and rice instead of having to order...More

I like the food just never know what I am ordering because authentic Mexican means you need to speak Spanish to ask questions about what you are ordering. Looks like a hole in the wall but great taste! Abundant quantity for a great price.
