Sergio’s Tacos

Sergio’s Tacos is a small chain of Mexican restaurant offering traditional Mexican food and drinks like tacos, burritos, sopes and horchata.

I visited the one located in Commerce. The place is small with a few tables (I counted six), nothing fancy a hole on wall type of restaurant. I visited at about 3:00 PM so the place is not very crowded. The place is always crowded during lunch and dinner time every time I pass by.

I ordered 3 sopes and  horchata to drink. A sope is a traditional Mexican dish that originated in the city of Culiacan. Sope is also sometimes called gordita. The base is a thick tortilla made of fried masa (a dough made of ground corn soaked in lime). It is topped with refried beans and crumbled cheese, shredded cabbage, meat and sour cream.

I ordered carne asada for the meat which is very tender, juicy and very well seasoned. The sope is really good and it is worth going back to. The shredded cabbage is fresh and crunchy; the refried beans is good as well.

Horchata is a tan and “milky” drink made of rice with vanilla flavoring and cinnamon. Rice is grounded until smooth, mixed with water, sugar, small amount of lime, and cinnamon stick are added. The mixture is made to rest overnight and filtered afterwards.

Sergios’ horchata is rich, not overly sweet with the cinnamon and vanilla flavors blending very well.

The only unfavorable comment I can say is the service. The order was taken by one of the cooks and he is not very friendly. Otherwise Sergio’s Tacos is one of the best place in Los Angeles for Mexican antojitos.

The Commerce location is located at 2216 South Atlantiv Blvd., Commerce, CA. Take the Atlantic exit on the I-5.

  1. This is the classic hole on the wall restaurant, the food is great, service is good. It place may not look fancy but the food is super great, love all their tacos, asada, chicken and carnitas all good.

    • This is your typical hole on wall restaurant, although it is small and not very sophisticated, their food specially the tacos are so good!

  2. I seriously don’t recommend this place, their tacos are tiny and the meat are loaded with grease and fat, service is not great either with the crew not friendly at all. While the meat is greasy, the taco is not soft but rather dry.

  3. I made sure to pass by Sergios every time I’m in Commerce. Although it is a small place and parking is tight, the tacos and burritos are the bomb but I enjoy the most the tostadas specially the tostadas de carnitas it is a corn tortilla shell topped with bits of pork, beans, cheese, onions and salsa. The crispy tortilla shell blended very well with the soft pork and savory salsa.

    The service is great too, you order your food and it is done in a few minutes, almost no waiting.
