We know our TX-MX food and this is fabulous! I could have drunk the Salsa and cilantro cream sauce! Chips were served warm and waitress said are made fresh daily. Guacamole and queso were great. The Shrimp Besos was unique and AMAZING!

Had dinner in Taquilos and it could not have been bettered. Lovely service and welcome, excellent beef fajitas with perfect, light tortillos and very tasty refrained beans. Deserves a full five stars.
