Great stop. We loved our little meal here. It was super fresh, light and very tasty. Meghan was a total star taking us through the menu options and for me as a plant based eater, the kitchen was super adaptable and it was all delicious. Thank you

Awesome little Taqueria, the tacos and burritos are very filling and tasty. Authentic food and home made chips and corn tortillas. I'm so impressed by the awesome food here and as a lover of Latino food it did not disappoint. Definitely in the top 4 mexican restaurants in town More...

Came on a Sunday morning and it wasn't as busy as it should be. Had 3 tacos and the burrito bowl. Carnitas were the best in life. Love the homemade hot sauces-- peach habanero was a fave. Chef greeted us when we came in, brought out the food, then came to personally check on us. 10/10 would return when I'm in town next More...

From bad to good. I had originally left a 1-star review after two back to back incidents, the first being a mix up in ingredients and the second being a missed order and improper refund. I was a frequent customer and had decided to no longer frequent this establishment based on these experiences. Fast forward a couple of months and I decided to stop back in on my way back to the office from a meeting. I was looking to get something close and convenient and stopped in for a tostada. Without mentioning anything or making any comments someone who I believe to be the owner came over to the till and told me that the meal was complimentary as an apology for the prior experience. I am surprised that they even knew who I was after 2 months of no longer going to the restaurant and without me mentioning the previous incident. I worked in the hospitality industry as a general manager for many years and 100% believe this is one of the best customer service experiences I have witnessed. For the owner to remember me and make the effort to rectify the situation after that long of time period is above and beyond. I will 100% be open to frequenting El Taquero again. More...

Nice selection of tacos with different ingredients. Small 4" tortillas, street taco size. Tried five, all different and all very good, not great. My sister had a cheese quesadilla, which was a little to crisp and really lacking cheese. The fish was by far my favourite. The chocolate chicken was interesting and very flavourful. The pork carnitas was super juicy and tender. More...

Cool pace inside. A solid 4 stars, I don’t think the tacos are even close to the best I’ve ever had to warrant a 5 star review. Saying that, I would say they’re very authentic to Mexico versus other taco places that have popped up recently. Side note tho, the classic margarita was excellent!! More...

STOP EATING ANYWHERE ELSE! We accidentally turned down the RIGHT CORNER and found this authentic taco GEM! Unreal service from a family that truly cares about everything they serve. 10/10 takes me back to Mexico! Margaritas are legit and will not disappoint! Tacos are amazing!!! Home made salsas and guacamole! REAL corn tortillas and amazing ingredients! Family friendly More...

Great tacos! My first time at El Taquero and it was fantastic!! I took my girlfriend for lunch here and we were amazing at all the different kinds of tacos they had. We ordered 2 sets of 4 tacos and after we devoured them ordered 5 more. Our only criticism would be that the tacos were small, 4" tacos. Going to a 5 or 6" tacos even if prices had to creep up would be better. We will definitely return. More...

We shared the taco platter and enjoyed some margaritas! The food and drinks were excellent. Flavours were authentic to what we have had in Mexico. The chef came out to ensure everything was good. He seems to take pride in his food and the taste reflected that. Our daughter and her two friends at 7, and 8 and they enjoyed it too!Thanks for a great meal! More...

We were pleasantly greeted immediately and asked if we’d come in before. We hadn’t, so she had lots of tips and suggestions for us. As a West Coast American I have pretty high standards for Mexican food, and this place is doing it right. I loved that someone from the kitchen came out to ask us how our food was (it was incredible). Reasonable prices too. The salsa bar with the pickled veg and onions was a nice addition, my mouth is watering thinking about it! The hibiscus margarita was a pleasant surprise. A perfect casual-but-elevated eatery.

Nice spot for a quick bite. All tacos are a pass except for the papas chorizo which has potato in it. Wrong texture for a taco. Service is quick and friendly. The highlight is the assortment of salsas, they make the tacos. Clean attractive interior with a small patio out front. Well done, I will return. Forgot to take pics of the tacos but I assure you they look like tacos should. More...

Finally a decently authentic taco shop in the Kelowna downtown. Featuring a flexible menu as well as a appealing variety of cocktails, liquor, and sodas.

Excellent for a Vegan or Carnivore lunch made by people that care. I’ve eaten here 8x and have been impressed by the hospitality and culinary creativity presented. They remember faces, and take pride in their product. We usually go for the 5 vegan tacos and Mex beer, and never look at what the 5 different tacos will be before ordering - they create new options daily. NEVER disappointed. More...

The perfect unique dinner we wanted at our wedding! It helped create the fun, easy going atmosphere we wanted our reception to have. Marnie was incredibly easy to communicate with, and helped us determine which menu fit our needs. Their online platform made payment and document transfer easy. The price for catering services was very competitive and reasonable. Izzy and his service team were totally independent in the space we provided, and his staff worked hard to keep our timing on track and the reception space clean. The food was DELICIOUS and authentic; our guests raved about it. Highly recommend El Taquero’s catering service! More...

Where to start El Taquero catered our wedding last week, and they seriously made the night! Marnie was incredible to work with from day 1 with clear communication and ease in tailoring the menu for us (I'm vegan and she pulled out all the stops!). Her team showed up on time, fully prepared, and with awesome attitudes - they pitched in all night clearing plates/glasses (even the ones that weren't theirs) and taking care of the trash collected. They stayed until the end and left their space cleaner than before the event... I seriously cannot say enough great things about them!Oh and the food?! The margaritas?! Ah-mazing!! I'm still getting texts and messages from guests about how awesome everything was! Our celiac guests were especially impressed that they could actually eat everything! We were blown away by the quality, the experience, and the overall positivity that El Taquero brought to our wedding. Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of our hearts (and bellies!) for being such a huge part of our big day!!xox The Langdons! More...

I ordered catering for a group meeting at work (12 people). I ordered online and they suggested a taco box and it was a major hit with everyone. It was delivered to my office on time and had a variety of beef, pork, chicken, and veg tacos, plus chips, rice, beans, sauce and sides. The tacos arrive assembled in a round platter and the sides were in sealed containers. It was perfect for a working lunch. Thank you! More...

Glad to have found this place. Quite authentic street tacos (except the meat is probably better). I loved the variety of salsas and pickledo vegetables. Since I love my greens, I would like to see more fresh veggies.The service was great and the prices are reasonable. The drinks looked great but I didn't go there so can't give an accurate review. I do recommend this place and since it was the only good Mexican open at the time, I was really pleased. More...

great tacos. My wife and I were there May 2017 and we really enjoyed this meal. Nothing complex but prepared well with fresh ingredient and made from scratch. Someone did put the time to create solid flavours for each tacos, and we appeciate that a lot. The Lamb and spicy beef were outstanding.we will be back! More...

Super friendly staff. They came out of the kitchen to check on us and when I offhand said that my son found it a bit too spicy, there was no hesitation on making him something. Been here a few times and always enjoyed the food. More...

We tried this place on a recommendation from a coworker and I am so glad we did! We wanted something light for a hot afternoon and three tacos was the perfect meal. The meat was tender and flavorful and the vegetarian taco was delicious! The staff were helpful in ordering and the atmosphere is great! We will be back soon I am sure! More...

I really like the look of this store and I did enjoy my meal from here. I grew up in California so I am used to a certain kind of "Mexican food" for me, this is not that. This is a Canadian version. It is tasty, just not authentic. I do want to give them another try and order tacos to go for my big family on a night we want to hang out at the beach for dinner. We will do that this summer and perhaps I'll update my review. On first impression, the price is a bit high and it's "Canadian-Mexican food" More...

We asked El Taquero to cater a lunch for us recently and they did such an amazing job. The tacos were delicious and the two gentleman who ran the taco station were phenomenal. The service from start to finish was fantastic. I would definitely recommend using them for any sort of gathering or just stop by the shop to people watch on the patio and enjoy some tasty tacos.

Mmm! This was quite the experience. It was nice finding a place that did Horchata up here in Canada, as well as an authentic street taco. The portions seem a little small at first, but are really filling. They also have breakfast options as well. My only issues are the hours- they're not open that late, but if you're looking for lunch downtown, come grab a seat here! More...

If you want to try authentic Mexican tacos and meet some really awesome, hard working folks, you need to check out El Taquero and meet Izzy, Marnie and their great team. Everything is made fresh every day (yes, the tacos too - you can watch them make them in house) and everything is delicious. The sangria and the verduras taco I had yesterday both blew my mind! The weekend brunch options are also amazing. Don't overlook this great spot if you're in Kelowna. More...

Had a very flavourful light lunch for my first visit here. Best tortilla soup ever, with lots of fresh lime and chucks of avacados, plus 3 open faced taqueros . Food was flavourful and fresh. Service was friendly too, they noticed I was a " new gringo " and took the time to point out their specialty salsa selections. Pineapple.jalapeño was my favorite, I chickened out and didn't try the xxxhot More...

Best authentic Mexican restaurant ever!! 4 tacos and a beer for 15$ each come with two corn tortillas so it's really 8 small delicious tacos. U can choose your favourite off of a Menu with about 12 choices. I tried all three chicken and a spicy beef! Each as unique as they sound. A new lunch staple for sure!! I had the lager beer and it was a great light choice (similar to bud) for a day beer! The owners are great at explaining what each dish is like and the cook brings his chef skills from Mexico City, where real Mexican food is soul food. They also have different salsas u can buy to take home for your family. Five stars from this new customer :)!! More...
