What I like about King Taco, is once you've been to one, you know they will all be the same. All locations are consistent, and the food is good, and served quickly. I like the variety of the food they have. Whether you want chicken or lengua, they have it. Sopes, and the rotisserie chicken are great. And you can fill up on a budget too.

I live in Oklahoma and I just may make another trip to California soon for these tacos. We had lunch there twice during our trip and we extremely pleased both visits. Their tacos, sopes, tamales, salsa, and horchata were all top notch! Best AUTHENTIC Mexican you'll find!

Food:
Its all authentic and super filling, not somewhere you go if you are on a diet. The lengua taco is my favorite. The brains are also not bad, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Yum! If ordering the sopes, only get 1 as they are tasty but super filling. The beans the cheese ratio is right on.

Service:
Its what you would expect for a place like this and for the price you're paying. You'll be full for about $10 and thats with pleny of variety. Definite Value.

Drinks:
Order the hortchata, cinnomany and creamy. All thats required for decent hortchata. Also the size of the thing is not for the faint of heart.

Overall:
Go there after a night out and you'll feel like a million bucks in the morning, otherwise just go there for a regular meal and you'll feel like a fattass albeit a happy fattass. Cheers!

I waited for my order more than 45 minutes for a few tacos for my family!!! On top of all. Food was horrible and staff gave me attitude about it.

Great, cheap tacos (and other Mexican foods)!

The tacos are on the smaller end, but the goodness in your mouth doesn't disappoint. The salsa is super legit as well.

The sopes are my favorite here. The shell is crispy and solid. The beans are fried into a paste that's spread over the top of the shell, while the meat and cabbage is spread on top.

The quesadillas are okay, but the guacamole that comes with it is great. The burritos make you never, ever want to go step foot into a Chipotle again.

King taco offers the staple meats. There's not much variety, but they make sure that what they've got is good.
