Taqueria Pico DE Gallo
If you don't like a little local color in your cuisine and if you don't speak or at least understand a little Spanish, maybe this isn't the place for you. But, if you enjoy authentic eats and don't need a cloth napkin to dab the salsa from your lips, you'll find some of South Tucson's most genuine and appetizing Mexican meals here. The fish tastes like it came straight from the Sea of Cortez (the fish platter has five pieces of flaky white fish, plus rice, beans and tortillas); the Carne Birria is slow-cooked, tender and tasty. Daily specials feature more great casa-style cooking. Prices are mostly $6-$8 and the portions are hefty.
Very good food, and reasonable prices. Check your order before you leave to make sure they've gotten it right. Not a place to hang out or take a date, unless you plan to eat in the car.

I love this place but they are really disappointing me lately.Been going there since 1996.I drive all the way from far far NW side to eat there.Used to live right by it.Can't recall how many times I've been there lately and they don't have the stuff on the menu, like carne asada.A mexican place without beef.Decided to call tonight and they don't have carne asada again.If it's not carne asada it's something else.This place used to have the best service in town to me.It's too bad I can't get what they supposedly have on the menu.Starting to be like Viva burritto(NO salsa).Come on people your losing money and making a lot of unhappy customer's.Do you not want their money for these items or are you trying to discontinue them.Tried to take my fiancee there twice cause she loves it so much and they don't have the food.Why can't I get what you have on the menu Pico de gallo.I've always gave you compliments but now your losing my business.I'm very very disappointed.If you care something will change and maybe I will come back.I could just imagine how many people have experienced this because this has happened to me on three occassions I been there(IN A ROW).What's up with that.A mexican restaraunt in Tucson without carne asada or salsa is just un-acceptable.How many of you mexican eater's would agree.Thought I would never see this go on with the restauraunt I used to love.Hope you all have better luck with them.Hopefully they will listen and fix it.Thanks
I am a Tucson native now residing in Phoenix and have yet to find a restaurant that even comes close to the wonderful authentic taste of this food! I even saw a show on tv, although of course I can't remember the name of the show now, stating that Pico de Gallo was one of the best taco places in the country. I found out about the restaurant from a review in Sunset magazine about seven years ago and not once have I been disappointed. It is clean with friendly staff and patrons. My only piece of advice is to go during the day. Enjoy and remember your sad friend in Phoenix, jealous that you are enjoying the wonderful food.
I am an ex-Tucsonan, and used to work down the street from Pico De Gallo. You must try the fish tacos! Everything I ate there was excellent, but the fish tacos were the best. I have tried to duplicate them up here in Minnesota, but have not been successful. This is one of the first places I go when I visit Tucson
Only about 6 months I began my new position at a near-by social service agency and I would never have imagined myself walking into Taqueria Pico de Gallo. Why? you ask. Well because I don't speak Spanish other than a few words. Well the day I set foot to buy my first breakfast burrito changed it all. There were only a few people in line and it was about 8:30am (I was running late and needing breakfast). So I stopped in search of a deal and something quick. What I got was a huge burrito with eggs, potatoes and cheese . . . don't forget the salsa (a favorite of mine). I left Taqueria Pico de Gallo impressed with the politeness of the man that rang in my order and served me.
I was buying for two that day, a co-worker and I. As I ate over my desk in my office I was thoroughly satisfied. So satisfied that I didn't stop half way through the burrito even though I was full, I ate it all up dousing my burrito with hot sauce all the way.
Since that day I have frequented this spot when I have a chance. Although I can not afford to eat out everyday when the opportunity presents myself I must say that I often think of what else I should try at the good ole shop down the street and to the right of a place I spend so much time each week, Pico de Gallo.
I like the friendly atmosphere of the workers there and the festive decor of the restaurant. Eating in reserves you the feel of being somewhere else, not Tucson. Again the menu is very reasonable and that is something I always tend to with the budget of a case manager. But I must say I am a peticular eater and will not succomb my mouth to just any taste. The only complaint is that they get sooo busy that there parking does not allow for all who want to eat there each day. Make sure you call in your order and park along the street! And I must add the ceviche is excellent. Stop on by and maybe I'll run into ya!
If you are looking for some genuniely authentic mariscos, this is the place to go! The shrimp cocktails are wonderful, and the cost of simple taco meals is outstanding. You cannot beat the prices and the wonderful seafood that Pico de Gallo offers.
The atomsphere is slightly bland, the restaurant is small, and there is sometimes a wait. However, the wait is worth it and for the price, you cannot beat this restaurant.
