I enjoyed the tacos and the shrimp tostada. My fiancé liked the quesadilla but was mad at the tacos since he gets an upset stomach with onions and asked for his tacos without onions. Of course they came with them still lol. Oh well. Took him like 15 mins to get them all out. The shrimp was fresh tasting, and they were huge! Only thing I wasn't a fan of was the salsa, but I didn't need the salsa anyways. I would definitely go back

We accidentally found this place and wanted to give a try as the rating looked pretty good. This is for sure now our to go place. The food was excellent. We ordered taco special and green burrito. Both were so tasty and not to mention how inexpensive they were. It's not a fancy place for sure but the food is great. The service is excellent!

Really good food and great prices! They were so nice and made our food fresh right when we ordered it. The carne asada burritos and tacos were so good along with the green and red salsa! Will be coming back!

Honestly some of the best Mexican I have had in a while. A little mom and pop shop and with amazing customer service. Great prices too!!! Huge portions for the wet burritos. I would have taken a pic but it went too quick. Definitely going to go again. I would recommend to all.

I came here for the first time for dinner, after my friend raved about the breakfast menu. Great food and great value.I must mention my server, Elsa. Rarely, have I seen anyone more friendly and smile more. She was amazing, and I hope to see her when I go back, which I definitely will.

The food at this place is delicious. It has a homemade mexican flavor to its food and the prices are very good. I buy a big asada burrito with all the toppings for $5.99 and it's really delicious. ( I use to buy my small 10$ super burritos at alfredos and 10$ dried burritos at Sinaloa across the street, never again. ) the 4 tacos and soda for 4.99 are filling and delicious. And the asada sopes for 2.99 are also big and delicious. I've taken my friends and neighbors and everyone loves the homemade flavors the food has at La Placitas. I really recommend this place for delicious Mexican food. They say they also filmed the movie FRIDAY on that location.

I found this little restaurant by accident. Gave it a try and didn't disappoint. Order the asada plate , the meat was good for only 9.99 orders the taco special 4 tacos with a drink for 5 dollars! The lady who helped me was very friendly . I love it will be back. - cash only

This family owned spot is delicious! The handmade tortillas are absolutely phenomenal and the owners are super nice! The food is always fresh and I order for my staff at least once a month including my own biweekly visits.

Absolutely amazing food at an amazing price. It doesn't get any better then this style of tacos. Small and very favorable. Owner is very nice definitely my favorite spot to eat when in Torrance! Highly recommend ?

Food is really good and the portion size is just right for the price. My only thing, which is more out of convenience is that they require cash only. I hardly carry cash on me so that's the only problem. But food wise, the taste is great! I love their daily specials.

All I can say is WOW! We've lived less than a mile away for over 7 months and are just finding this gem now... we tried nearly every meat that you can get on tacos and all of them were amazing!! These are tied for my favorite tacos now and they are probably the most reasonably priced tacos around!! Come try this place out - you won't be disappointed!

The food here is okay nothing out of the ordinary , I didn't like it, they don't give you any condiments besides radishes and carrots . No hot sauce to put on your food . The meat in the carne asada isn't that good . I don't recommend this place honestly .
