Not a lot of quesatacos in the Bay Area. Yum! The service is good and ambience is nice

I'm a huge fan of heir carne asada burrito and tacos! Great food plus fast and friendly service! I recommend ordering ahead and going to the front of the line for pickup as it can get very busy here.

Fantastic tacos! The quesatacos with adobada are delicious. Always hot chips and cold aguas fracas too. Highly recommend. In the evenings it gets a bit chilly outside so bring a jacket if coming later in the day.

This spot is great! I had the queso tacos adobaba and the shrimp tacos. They had so much flavor! I did have to wait a while because they were so busy. The line is always long at this place but it's worth the wait. I brought tacos home for the fam and they had rave reviews as well about the tacos.

This taco spot is the best I've ever had. Their food is consistently delicious, their service always fast and always greeting customers with a great attitude. I'm so glad my friend recommended! If you haven't tried it, you should go today!!!


Tijuana style tacos I do not think so, no flavor, dry meat and the salsa was just aweful throw it out no spice or kick to it. 0 stars worst taco place ever, not authentic .

There is always a line here! That's how you know the food is good! Always wanted to try this place so finally one day we were passing by and seen the line wasn't actually wrapped out, we pulled over immediately. They have a few tables for outside dining but most looked like they were just sitting while waiting for their food. Their tortilla are home made and are fire! That's what makes the food so good. Their shrimp tacos tasted fresh. Their carne asada was full of flavor and their al pastor was good and actually not salty!I just found out DoorDash delivers them to my house so looking forward to trying more on the menu! :)

THE BEST BURRITO IVE EVER HAD. I thought I've had the best burrito before but I was wrong, this is it. Tacos El Tucan have the best burritos ever. The burrito was super flavorful and very moist. The carne asada had the perfect amount of meat to fat ratio. They were super generous with the guacamole as well! The al pastor burrito had chunks of pineapple in it which gave it a nice, sweet and tangy flavor. Sometimes when I eat a burrito, I find that it's difficult to tell distinguish the meats but for El Tucan, you can definitely tell the difference. The flavors in the burrito are all so distinct, but mesh so well together. I can't wait to come back and try their tacos (which I assume they're actually known for since it's in the name lol).

Wanted to check out this spot when it first opened, but heard about the long lines and wait times. Finally got to order today: super steak burrito and steak quesotaco. The pictures on yelp made the quesotaco look very appetizing because of the crispy cheese. However, when I got home, the taco I received looked like a regular taco and there was no crispy cheese on it. The steak from the burrito and the tacos were very salty. My sisters had the steak quesadilla and steak Tucan fries and said that they were salty as well. My boyfriend had the chicken burrito and he said that it was also salty. I'm not sure if it's just today that the meat is salty, but I would be willing to try again next time to compare. The burrito came with chips and salsa. Some of the green salsa that were given to us were solid like jello. Not sure if it's old or not... I would be willing to try again next time and will update my review about the meat!


I was always curious when the transformation of an old Pup Hut turned to a taco joint. I have found my go to Mexican places and never thought to cross this one as I had sentimental reminders of my childhood here. When I finally parted ways with my childhood friend (Pup Hut) and the interest in seeing crowds in line whenever I passed by, I decided to give them a chance. I went for something simple. My guideline when determining if I like a place is I always get one item that I favor at restaurants and if I like my favorite then it’s the green light that I will like other items in menus. So this day I got a taco, minus the meat, added tomato. From the time I ordered to the time received was quick being that there were orders ahead of mine. The quality of ingredients is sooo fresh. I love my veggies crispy and their homemade tortilla tastes like you’re welcomed to an abuelitas home.

Good place during the shelter-in-place lockdown to get a burrito. Their super burritos are like the name "super." Lots of meat and made to the specification of your order. The ingredients are just right, delicious and fresh.Couldn't ask for anything more. You've got a friend in me everytime I need comfort food and I will definitely recommend you to others.

It reminds me of Tijuana. These tacos are delicious.
