My two stars is due to a recent experience with poor service at Ortega's Taco Shop. I have been a devoted customer of Ortega's since its days as a farmer's market food stand and considered their customer service acceptable for many years.However, when my mother broke her ankle two months ago, I picked up some soup from Ortega's for her, only to find out upon arriving home that Ortega's soup lids were so cheaply made that two of the lids had completely melted from the heat of two other cups of soup that had been placed on top of them by an Ortega's employee. I painstakingly fished out the pieces of plastic and was able to salvage about half of the soup from those cups.I had asked the employee who handed me my order if I needed to take any precautions when driving home with the order. He said I just needed to hold it steady, and it would be fine, which I painstakingly did. I would have had no problem rearranging the soup to avoid the lids' melting, if he had advised me to do so.Since the packaging issue and loss of an entire serving of food was on Ortega's shoulders, I asked them for a refund, only to be laughed at, as you can see in the attached photo from their response to my FB message.

Vegetarian options: Handful of vegetarian options. Though not explicitly labeled as vegetarian, it's pretty clear here which items have meat and which ones don't.As far as I can tell, there are no vegan options (unless you're a vegan who eats meat--in which case, the soup might work for you).

I have eaten here many time but today will be my last. The restaurant was overwhelmed with too many customers and not enough staff. After waiting 15 minutes and having many customers that came in behind me receive their orders, I stood at the counter to be noticed and finally was able to get a staff attention. Was told they didn’t have an order for me then said it was under a different name but still not ready so I asked for a refund because I no longer had time to eat. The owner never apologized and said I should just be ok with waiting because of staff issues and no offer of customer services for my time.

Ortega's is the best! We have been eating here for years! I've not had a single bad meal here, ever. Burritos, tacos, empanadas, or quesadillas- everything I've ordered is Delicious and fresh. Their chips and queso are great too. I always order extra to have some for later!

Hands-down, the best tacos anywhere around this is a small family business. The grandmother started it many years ago down the road and the daughter now runs it. The food is made with love and made from scratch tortillas chips all made fresh every day. Do yourself a favor check it out

We love Ortega's! Wish we lived closer because we would hit them up so much more! Street tacos are amazing and made authentically. I try to avoid wheat as much as possible since it messes with my health so having the option of corn tortillas really makes me happy. ? We try and come early to get their breakfast menu too! Prices are on point even in this economy. ?

Popped in here before the horse races. OUTSTANDING tacos in WV. Service was great and I tired all of the street tacos. Ended up having 6 in total. This place has better tacos than most, if not all, of the places in the SW US. Will return anytime I am in the area. Great value as well.
