After living in San Diego California for over a decade and having the pleasure of eating authentic Mexican food in both San Diego and Tijuana MX, I never imagined I’d find that same authenticity in Laurel, MS but this place has it. Some of the best tacos and asada burritos I’ve ever had — right here in Laurel. The staff are friendly and welcoming.Wish I had known about this place sooner but never really noticed it. I think the ‘Taqueria’ signage is a little small and many people may not understand that term down here in the south. Perhaps some signage on the roof that yells ‘AUTHENTIC STREET TACOS’ would have clued me in a little sooner ;) Regardless, I’m glad I’ve found this little gem, can’t wait to get takeout from them again very soon. They also have a nice restaurant area if you’d like to dine in. Try this place out, you can’t go wrong, I highly recommend the El Pastor and Asada Tacos or Asada Burrito!Kid-friendliness: Kids will love their tacosParking: Plenty of parking and a drive thruWheelchair accessibility: Appears to be very accessible by wheelchair

Not really a huge fan of the food. It was ok, just not really my style. The service was exceptional however. I'll probably go againFood: 3/5

This was my 3rd visit to this place and it keeps getting better. I've ordered something different every time and can't wait to go back.

Been searching for authentic tacos down here and am so happy I have found this place! Not “white people” Mexican food. Just saying, most you know what I mean. Anyway, delicious el pastor, carne Asada and lingua tacos. Juicy and flavorful! Highly recommend, I will be back

Sincerely the best tacos I’ve had in the United States in memory. I got the pastor and the meat was tender and the sauce perfectly coated every piece. I would almost drive from New Orleans just to get a bite.

Best tacos in the state. The carnitas are absolutely delicious!! Great food. Great staff. Feels like I’m eating at grandmas honestly.


Very flavorful. Enchiladas verde were good but the Rojas were even better! Table hot sauce and salsa verde were amazing. Rice was a bit bland but the refried beans had a lot of flavor. Tacos and tamales are both great as well! Service was fast and friendly.

Delicious, fresh food! Small & tucked away, but worth the stop! The chips & salsa were fresh and good also! The owners were so kind and helpful.

The steak tacos with either the green or red sauce will make you wish you had more tacos. Don't normally like rice but here I ate it. Good refried beans.

If you are like me and love authentic Mexican food than this is your place. Im from California and authentic Mexican food is what I grew up on. There are a few other Mexican spots in town but this one is the top one or two. Its still not like southern California but in my opinion its the closest in town. The one thing I dont like is that theres no chedder cheese. Every Mexican restaurant in town uses a American cheese sause which is definitely not authentic. But most of the other food is. This place is very small but the food is served quickly and quite delicious. If you're looking for a traditional Mexican restaurant ambiance than this is not the place. But right next door there is. The tortilla chips are tasty. They also have a green sauce and a red sauce they bring you that are good.

Tacos were delicious, and we loved their salsas. My chicken chimichanga was good, but I wasn't a fan of the white cheese sauce it was smothered in. Service was great and we would definitely go back for tacos.

Never disappointed! Food is always Top Tier and staff are always so friendly and welcoming! I love coming here and hitting up the very useful drive through. I do have to say though, the parking lot is a little tight and a bit difficult to leave out off, but once you do it once or twice ya get the hang of it!
