Las Teresitas marks the return of Gaspar Perez, founder of the Taco Morelos restaurants. This time, his restaurant is extremely casual and Perez is keeping his staff small and family-oriented-his cousin cooks and his wife waits tables. It offers fresh ingredients and scratch cooking at practically Taco Bell prices. The restaurant's most distinguishing feature is the salsa bar in the center of the dining room. It's full of immaculately cut garnishes, including radishes and cucumbers, lime wedges, and house-pickled cauliflower, peppers, onions, and carrots.

Las Teresitas menu includes many popular Taco Morelos items, so expect burritos, tacos, and enchiladas topped with house-made mole, and harder-to-find meat fillings such as cabeza, lengua, and suadero.
If you're a devotee of Las Teresitas, you've probably recruited friends to follow in the cult of its taco, a task that's not easily accomplished by simply viewing the restaurant's exterior.

Chorizo, Mexican sausage, is modestly spicy and somewhat oily, but it's authentic Mexican fare that's hard to find done right in the Twin Cities. Lucky for Minnesotans, the owners of Las Teresitas have a long history of... More »

Sometimes it's nice to see cheap eats get gussied up, with street foods such as doubles or pad Thai being served in decorator-designed spaces and paired with fine wines. But other times—when you're tired, when you're broke, and when your hair is... More »
I found this place online and had to eat here. i was not disappointed at all with the food or the serves. The place is very relaxed and welcoming. Prices of the food is a steal for what they are able to make. I enjoyed everything I ordered and plan on going back until I have tried everything on the menu. If anyone wants to try real great mexican food and can't afford to go to MEXICO, just stop here and you'll feel like your in another world.
