My wife and I came to El Taoseno to have breakfast with my family. My wife had an amazing freshly homemade chicken fried steak and eggs. I got steak and eggs with green chile. Because the steak was so juicy with great seasoning, my wife...More

Ate here for the first time and loved it - the borracho tacos and the tamales were standout dishes. Reasonable prices and friendly service. Very casual and laid back setting. We came in about 8PM right after the large groups had left.

When you choose a restaurant you should know if this is a local favorite with little frills but with large flavors or a gastronomical sensation that delivers personal attention to each dish. El Taoseno is the former - a place where you will enjoy a...More
