Tijuana Tacos in Quakertown

This is the little whole in the wall restaurant that has replaced "Tacos La Mexicana" that was also one of our favorites.

We've been regulars at this place, and I have to say, the food is normally pretty good. They are catering to a local latino population, but the menu is mostly bilingual. They have pictures of off menu items up as well.

We were so grossly disappointed with the restaurant yesterday however. We eat there about 2-5 times monthly. It's cheap, they have great tongue tacos, and my husband likes the mole. My spanish is not stellar but I've never had an issue ordering.

Last night my husband picked up a take out order, not uncommon for us. They recognized him, and he gave the order. When he got home, it was totally wrong. I had ordered a couple cueritos tacos, and a tongue taco, and I got roasted pork and skirt steak. My husbands order was incorrect as well, but missing ingredients. My guac was brown.

The language barrier over the phone wasn't easy, so Dh stopped by on his way home from work today to let them know we had received a wrong order with a couple mistakes. I honestly couldn't tell you what we were expecting...a replacement? An apology? A free soda? Something...we're there all the time.

Basically, the staff was really rude to my husband, didn't apologize, and told my husband his waitress didn't speak english and that was our problem. I was a little shocked.

I'm not the type of person to order something in a foreign country and complain because it's not right, or blame someone when there is a language happens. it was however, the same thing I order several times a month, always.

As nice as it was to have a local authentic place...I honestly don't think we're returning to a restaurant that values us so little as customers.
