I have been coming to Los Gallos for years. Eating a meal there always makes me feel happy. Who could ask for more?

I almost always eat two chile rellenos, with rice and beans, and corn tortillas. Yum. Generous portion, good price, and well prepared food served quickly. In the local area, the best chile rellenos I have eaten and the quality is consistent the many times I have had them.

They have a very nice salsa bar with: three salsas; a nopalito salad; jalapeno, carrot and onion escabeche; limes and radishes. Knock yourself out on all the warm corn tortilla chips you want.

Tequila bar, too. Also, a patio. It overlooks the parking lot, but is large enough that you are not sitting next to the cars and a pleasant place to sit on a warm evening.

Nice place to order and take home, too.

For the price, this is a great place. Fantastic tasty tacos, huge choice of extras like nopal, radishes, salsas, etc. This is the only place I know that has buche, my favorite taco.

This is a small local taqueria & Mexican restaurant that became one of our "go to" places for fast, cheap food -- like those nights when you don't feel like cooking and you're too mentally tired to go to a nice restaurant and spend brain cells deciding on menu choices.

Their super burritos are huge monsters. Our favorite dishes there are the carnitas super quesadilla, the carnitas super burrito, and their soft corn tortilla tacos (carnitas, carne asada).

I usually ordered 2 ala cart tacos. Just meat with some meat-specific condiments and no rice or guacamole. They are pretty generous with the meat and since each taco comes with two corn tortillas, you can turn your two tacos into four easier to eat tacos. A really cheap meal, particularly since you get free chips and salsa.

They have a self-serve chips and salsa bar. I really like their hot salsa. It probably comes out of a can rather than being made fresh in the kitchen. Even so, it's really hot and flavorful.

Two cautions:
1. Generally, their food is a bit on the salty side. But since I like salt....
2. This is a cash-only place.

This storefront restaurant offers outdoor seating. There are many options on the menu, all reasonably priced. Food comes out rapidly. Pineapple juice is especially tasty.
