Clean, fresh and a wall full of choices, burritos, salads, combos, it's all good. I like the grilled chicken Caesar salad, and the super Al Pastor Quesadilla. Best salsa bar around. Been loyal to El Toro for 20 years and the same ladies work to take my orders like ten years ago. Solid!

So-So – Parking is hard to find - Burritos are not the best. They are smaller in comparison to other taqueria's in the city. The worst part - The meat isn't fresh - Not cooked when ordered. Another complaint was they don't have a lot of meat in them. It wasn't the worst burrito i've ever had, but I'm not going back.

Could be better – I went over there with a bunch of people, it wasn't up to my standards. So go somewhere else, if I've done anything for you this is it.

A legendary taqueria known for its fresh ingredients and craftsman-like take on traditional antojitos. – In Short
There's nearly always a constant line at this venerable taqueria, with patrons drawn from the entire spectrum of the city's wildly diverse demographics. Though tables can be scarce, most diners are willing to share. The highlights among the vast menu include tacos and burritos. The building blocks for these Mexican stalwarts include four kinds of tortillas (from basic flour to red-chili); pinto, black or refried beans; ten meat fillings; Spanish or vegetarian rice; and four types of fresh salsa.

Damn good burrito – They hit the spot. I've tried many other places, trying to seek out that truly authentic, hole-in-the-wall place - but this one is consistently good (not to mention clean and friendly). If you want a solid burrito (lots of choices), go here.

REAL MEXICAN? YEAH RIGHT!!! – I just have to say their food quality is really bad.

They use "can" refried beans, steak instead of bbq meat (carne asada), avocado is old and their rice is burned.

They need to lower the prices and better the quality of food.

I would recommend LA CORNETA TAQUERIA to anyone.

Best of the Best – My wife has been going to this place since she was a little girl and she won't go anywhere else for burritos. We go probably once a week and never get sick of it. Great food, friendly staff and it's ina great neighborhood.
