King’s Tacos was founded in 1983 in Chihuahua City, Mexico (Northern part of Mexico). Javier Aragon came to Toronto from Mexico and took his same restaurant King's Tacos with him. This is not a chain or franchise, rather, Javier just moved his restaurant from Mexico to Canada. The restaurant has 3 different sauces – a red sauce which is spicy, a green sauce which is really mild, and a orange chipotle sauce which is medium with a great smoky flavour. The meal comes with complimentary chips. Some of the taco meals come with a plate of meat and then you make your own tacos, and some of the platters I think have enough meat to make 6 or 7 tacos. Seriously. Other things on the menu include fajitas, enchiladas, tortas (Mexican sandwiches), and burritos. For a really big Mexican feast, they actually have parrilladas which are big Mexican meat platters with your choice of two types of meat for 2 to 4 people. The restaurant is also known for its frijoles charros, which is a bean soup mixed with chorizo sausage and pork chunks. I have been to this restaurant several times and really like it. This is not Canadianized Mexican, this is the real thing!
The address of the restaurant is:
1216 St. Clair Avenue West
Toronto, ON M6E 1B4
