California Tacos & More
If you are hankering for a big, fresh taco, try this casual neighborhood favorite. The portions are huge and the food is very good. Start with a big plate of traditional nachos or chips with cheese. There are five types of tacos to choose from: refried bean, chicken, steak, ground beef and the special fish taco. Also available are enchiladas, burritos, chimichangas and more. The decor is primarily Mexican with interesting wall art and 50s-style booths and tables.
It isn't fit for human consumption; being a flavorless small portion of gruel doesn't make it a taco. The margaritas are dispicable and the wait on your order is terrible.
There is no character, the place is a whole in the wall shanty and needs be condemned it houses only disappointment and stomach pains.
I like cheap tacos and drove over the day I found out about it. It looks like a dive (which I generally like) but ends up being just blah. It has the atmosphere of a run down bar, with the same service. Both of which I can live with if the food is good. However, the food is not authentic and bland. It tastes like an even more americanized taco bell.
I LOVE going to California Taco and more when I have lunch with my mom who works at CUMC and does not get very much time for a lunch break.....The food there is very good and is reasonably priced....I hope this place stays open for a long time.
First visit to California Taco was on April 23, 2009. Wonderful beef taco, cold beer. Today (June 30, 2009) taco was doughy....very doughy. Filling was great and the nachos with cheese....yum. So roll out the taco shells and all will be well.
I love the taste of the taco shells. And the green taco sauce is really good. The red sauce is really watery. They added on an additional room last year. There are some cool historical photos displayed as well.
I would put this place just above Taco Bell in terms of quality. The carne asada (steak) burrito literally consists of chopped steak in a taco sized wrapping covered by something that resembles Velveeta. There burrito has NO guac., rice, or beans (refried or black). The salsa consisted of tomato with no chunks of onion or jalapeno/serrano pepper. The decor is fine I suppose, but when that is the best thing that can be said for a restaurant, then the food must not be good.
If you like Taco Bell then this place is good for you. If you are accustomed to good Mexican food then avoid California Taco.
