Every time I am in the Orlando area we head out here for a good dinner. Don't expect fancy but do expect delicious. I always drink agua jamaica. Their flautas and tacos are very tasty. Everything is well seasoned like if grandma cooked it!

Made an order through ubereats which i must say is not my first time! I get the same order everytime! NEVER HAD AN ISSUE! They added hot sauce to everything!!! I order it the same exact way everytime but today they added it, we never...had this problem before! Not even my kids could of eaten them because they were all spicy. Called the restaurant, lady on the phone sounded like she could care less, and according to her she spoke to the manager and he said in other words its not his problem. Sad because i LOVED this place after today they could keep their tacos and horrible customer service for someone else.More

Don't remember how I discovered this place, but now I'm addicted. Drive-up window or walk up window service. A couple of tables outside or take out. The prices are very reasonable and the food is delicious. And I'm very particular. Try it-- you'll be back....Open late too.More

All I'm saying is... the best carnitas tacos I've had in Orlando. Not necessarily the best side of town, but definitely worth visiting.

When on vacation we love finding great hole-in-the-wall eateries. Tortas El Rey was close to our AirBnB and the locals told us it was a great place to eat. We had the carne asada (grilled steak) tacos and the carnitas (fried pork) tortas. Everything was...delicious. We'll be back before the end of our vacation.More

Was headed into Orlando today so I had to stop at my favorite lunch place. Food is always fresh, made to order and delicious. The carnitas Taco has perfect pork with crispy skin pieces!!😊

Being from Southern California and moving to Florida, I have found that good Mexican food is hard to come by in this area. The best I have found so far is in Haines City at little streets stands along with 1792. The best being Taqueria...de Guadalupe. But I heard about this area of Orlando having a lot of Mexicans in it so I thought I would try it. I ordered 2 carne asada tacos and to El pastor tacos. First off I get 4 carne asada tacos instead. Greasy and rolled up in a foil with some way too hot watery sauce put on them. I tasted nothing but burning hot immediately. I'll pass. El Tenampa and Tapatio in Kissimmee and anywhere in Haines City beats what passes for Street Tacos in Orlando.More

I have not had anything at this restaurant that I did not like. One of our favorite things to do is grab a bundle of 50 cent tacos on a big workday or on the weekend when we are running errands (Yes, they really are...50 cents and they are great!). We have also tried their lunch special tacos and they are fantastic (traditional double wrapped corn tortillas). The tortas (sandwiches) are all fantastic. If you have never had a traditional Mexican torta, then this is THE place to try it (I mean, it's named sandwich king). We have had both pork ones, the steak one, and the chorizo con huevos. All of them are exploding with flavor - get everything on them. I pretty much go with the mindset that if they think it tastes good on there, then I am going with whatever they choose. We have also had the flautas and woo-wee they're awesome. Again, order it with whatever they put on it - smothered in sour cream and queso. Amazing. It is traditional Mexican, so be prepared for spicy. It is not overly spicy, but it will leave your mouth with a bit of a kick in a good way. Ask for the tomatillo and red smoked sauce to go with anything you order. They also have lime slices and pickled vegetables that you can ask for - it comes with some things. Another tip, even though it is a drive-through, be prepared to wait longer than traditional fast food places. They make the food to order, and trust me, its worth the wait. Do yourself a favor and try this place.More

Authentic Mexican food! You will love it - drive through or sit outside / just be careful with that drop on the way out of drive through- why don’t they fix it by now... I have see that there for about 5+ years now...
