Editorial Review – Traditional Mexican dishes and on-site handmade tortillas woo patrons to this hidden spot in a L.A. industrial zone.
rivals Taco Bell – There are two classes of mexican restaurants. Ones that serve pico de gallo and ones that don't. Restaurants that you want to go to serve it, and taco bell and Tia Juana don't. Save your money and go to Taco Bell. It will taste better. Everything I put in my mouth except the SALT was disgusting. Tasteless, tortillas were dry, tasted like flour, rough, and unspecial. We ordered one beef burrito and beef tacos. The beef was in big chunks and they used a bad cut for $8 and $10. it's just not worth it. The service sucked as well.
Tortillas are great, good food – I have always seen this place driving by but never would have thought to try it until some recommended it to me. One of the better Mexican restuarants I have been to. The tortillas are hand made and they are great. The food is just as good in my opinion.
Best Mexican Food in the LA Metropolitan area – I lived in the Los Angeles area for about 17 years and lived in the San Diego area for about another 4 years. I consider Tia Juana the best Mexican Food Restaurant in the whole LA metropolitan area and one of the best restaurants all together. It is not just the food, which is delicious, but also the ambience, created by an staff of people (beginning with the owner) that dedicate to make your visit there an special moment with great service, plenty of smiles, and of course great margaritas). I presently live in Arizona and make monthly trips to the LA area and I never miss an opportunity to have lunch or dine there.
Good handmade tortillas, ok food – The food varies between ok and good, but the handmade (in front of you) tortillas are definitely quite good. I think that's kind of their "thing," honestly. You can get your standard, authentic-style Mexican fare, but I'd have a beer instead of a margarita.
I am from texas and LOVE mexican food. I got two chicken tacos and the chicken was very greasy and dark. The margaritas are well priced and ok. Paco's taco's is healthier and better atmosphere
do not even bother – This place has to have the worst mexican food after Gilbert's. I will not even go back for the handmade tortillas. You want good mexican food go to Lares or El Torito Grill. I had the beef burrito and besides being bland and cold it only had 2 pieces of beef.
Hunh? – With all the great Mexican food in Los Angeles I recommend going somewhere else. "Authentic" does not mean "mediocre."
soooo good – This place is very small and nothing fancy. But the food is great. Homemade tortillas. Great rice and beans.
