How it all Started

Las Carretas Taco Shop first opened its doors April 13th, 1998. Our roots are tied to the San Diego area where the couple that made it all happen met. They brought every San Diegans favorite California breakfast burrito with them. Being a first generation family owned and operated business we take pride in not only our great costumer service but also our mouth watering food. From our tacos to burritos to tortas and even to our excellent menudo, which is served daily, our customers cannot get enough of it. Our thriving business has grown over the years. In the last few we have started to share our love for authentic Mexican food even further. Through our catering services we have helped families lighten the stress of party planning by taking care of their food at a myriad of festivities such as weddings, baby showers, quinceaneras, etc. With technology booming, You can also find us on social media such as Facebook and Instagram @lascarretastacoshop.
