OC Weekly's Description
The county's best taquería. This is where you come to worship the gospel of the $1.25 taco, an increasingly rare find in this era of continued Mexican immigration and rising tortilla prices. And a buck won't get you just a taco-truck taco: Carnitas Los Reyes uses tortillas as thick as a copy of The New Yorker and piles on the meat until it looks like a New York street-side gyro.
Tips from foursquare
I go straight for the carnitas plate ($7) the carnitas are always tender. If I could make pork taste this good, I’d name a restaurant after it as well.
You have to try the carnitas burrito 'con todo'.
The best carnitas in OC, parking might be a bit tough but well worth it.
Simply the best carnitas I have tasted in the OC. I fully believe the wet carnitas burrito with the green sauce would be wonderful.
Delicious food, family owned and locals have been going here many years!!
