Best

We love SKY's!!! GREAT food for vegetarians! Our last order was soggy though -- terribly messy. Its sad to get a soggy taco.

Worst

Breakfast is not good, besides the home-style potatoes. Everything else, is just okay...probably the first and last time, I'll order from them.

I placed an order and was informed it would take 45-minutes to an hour to come. After an hour and 15 minutes I called the restaurant to see why it was taking so long. They asked me if I could come and pick it up. I told them I ordered it for delivery. They put me on hold for a while then came back to tell me they were too busy to deliver and asked if I could pick it up. Why the hell would I order delivery if I wanted to go pick something up? Also, why the hell would I want to come pick up a food order that's now an hour old & cold? Don't offer delivery if all you can provide is take-out. If you were really busy and couldn't deliver within an hour, you should have called me right away to let me know. I could have canceled then instead of being left hungry and without any food. Bottom line: Don't order delivery. more

Sky's was a huge hit from the day they opened their doors. Now I find out they DELIVER? There prices are beyond reasonable for the quality of food they deliver. It's a family owned joint and you can tell this place cares about pleasing their customers and aren't like most of these run of the mill delivery joints out to make a buck serving you crap. One of only a handful of restaurants on Eat24 that I would recommend wholeheartedly to others who use the service. more

A very beautiful Asian woman with the most polite voice and manners hands me a huge bag of food that costs less than it would to cook for myself and tastes better than if i had? yes, yes this place is awesome. one time i ordered it delivered and Sky herself showed up at my door with my food. What a wonderful woman. Seriously you cant go wrong eating here, especially when you compare it to what else is close by. The food here fills me up and yet doesn't make me feel like i have a rock in my stomach afterward. The only problem with sky's tacos is when you finally go back to your old taco shack, they will know where you've been and hate you for it. BEST TACOS EVER! more

These are the best tacos that i have ever eaten. I have been thinking about them ever since the last time I ordered. Keep up the good work more

Best Taco In Town 9/25/2009

Whether you have a sudden craving for a mexican food or not, you must go check and try the Sky's Gourmet Taco. The food are very delicious and you can really taste the freshness of every ingredient in your food. \r \r The must trys are: turkey quesadilla, beef burrito, veggie tacos and the pineapple cheesecake. \r \r The serving is very hearty and the price is so reasonable. Trust me, it's worth your every penny. Pros: Ingredients are always fresh, delicious, worth every penny more

Excellent!!! Everything hot and tasty---fast delivery---not your usual fast food---done with imagination and skill..... more

I thought the 'sassy sauce' was delicious. 3/31/2008

I tried the tofo tacos and loved the flavor of the sassy sauce. It was very satisfying. It has a sweetness to it that combined really well with the spicy. It is unique but I thought delicious. Also the staff was very friendly with me. I plan on going back to Sky's Tacos often. Pros: tofu tacos, lemonade, service more

The best tacos in L.A.! 3/12/2008

A friend recommended this place because she knows I love tacos and seafood. Well I was not disappointed. Sky's has the best shrimp and fish tacos I have every had. They were so good, I spent $30 and I would never do that for a taco. They were just that good. The Sorrel Lemonade was also delicious. I wish they had a location in the South Bay area because driving to L.A. thru traffic is a killer! If you are in the area, definitely try this place. Not sure about anything else on the menu but the tacos will have you craving for more. Don't expect to eat just one. And they don't come cheap. These bad boys are $3.75 a piece and $4.75 for Lobster tacos. But they do an excellent job of giving you your money's worth. The tacos are nice and hearty. Pros: Tacos are definitely worth the price. Cons: Really small location. I actually passed it up. more

Straight Garbage! 1/17/2008

My girlfriend and I decided to venture out for a new little taco place. There are so many small traditional Mexican restaurants in L.A. , we wanted to find something a little trendy, but quaint. Through our search online we discovered Sky's Taco. As with any new place, reviews are important. Since there was only one bad review, we figured to try it out for ourselves...\r \r Well, to say the least this place was disgusting. From the moment we entered, the customer service was horrible. Not friendly or inviting. Nevertheless, we were there primarily for the tacos. We ordered the Lobster, the Mahi, and the Steak taco, some chips, and a couple of lemonades (since we heard the fresh lemonade is delicious). The chips were stale, the tacos were doused with sauce which made the tacos unbearable to eat. The lemonade, in my opinion, was mixed with just sugar and packet lemonade mix. Nothing was fresh by any means! We both left this place unsatisfied and disgusted. \r \r Lazy, unfriendly service and poor quality food is the highlight of this place. I would only recommend this place if you are a dog or on the verge of committing suicide. I would prefer eating my own feces before coming here again... Pros: There were plenty of places to sit. Cons: Everything. more

Great tacos with soul 11/7/2007

Their tacos are amazing. Especially the Cajun Crawfish Taco (which is for a limited time). It's something about their sauce that makes it great. And I love the fact that they don't put beans in there. The tacos are not your average Mexican taco or like the tacos you'll find in the fast-food chains. They are authentic tacos with an authentic twist - they have an addition of Southern soul. The only thing I did not enjoy on their menu was their cheese quesadillas because it was rather dry. But, don't let this discourage you from trying it. Their prices are reasonable, about $3.00 a taco. Their lemonade is homemade and it tastes like so. However, the place is very small. Barely big enough to fit 20 people, including the outside patio though I've never run into any problems trying to get in before. Their servers are the cooks - wonderful ladies who are very warm and inviting and service is relatively quick. In short, this place ranks on my top ten. Tacos that everyone should at least try. Pros: Cheap fantastic tasting tacos. Cons: Very small place. Not recommended for big parties. more

Damn fine eats 3/9/2007

This place is really cute. Its an almost-gormet little-taqueria-that-could. Food is great, and the staff is friendly. Try the turkey burrito and lemonade. mmmmmmmmmm Pros: Great food, mixed crowd Cons: Not enough seating sometimes! more

DISGUSTING! Disregard other reviews!!! MAJOR disappointment 9/21/2006

ok I was looking around Citysearch and happened upon the reviews for Sky's Taco. The three reviews made it sound fantastic! So I drove over there to find a shady hole in the wall (which sometimes means great food comes out of there, but not in this case) then you have to order through this tiny window to a super grumpy girl. then I get the food, and it's disgusting. I was not able to eat it. they put this NASTY sweet marinara-type sauce ALL OVER the tacos and burritos, I couldn't even pick around it! They used the WORST meat of the chicken... ALL DARK MEAT that didn't even look like it was from a chicken... And even though i was the only customer, it still took over 20 minutes to make myu food, and from looking at it, I can't comprehend how! Anyhow, everything about this experience was so horrible. and the $$$ was higher than some other places where the food is a million times better! (2 tacos and 2 burritos for $20... kiss my @$$!) I cannot even describe how much I want to save you all from this experience....blech.\r \r Go to Poquito Mas... that's some great food... or Don Antonios... oh man I have so many good ones to tell you but I am blanking right now...\r \r Anyhow, stay away from Sky's. Pros: nothing... Cons: food service atmosphere surroundings EVERYTHING! I was the only customer and it took 20 minutes to make my food! and it sucked! more

Tasty tacos and burritos 9/13/2003

I have tried several places in Los Angeles trying to find the perfect tacos. I've tried Tito's and they stink. El Tepeyac wasn't bad (they have huge burritos) but the flavor wasn't all there. Sky's is the front runner so far. Everything that I have had here tastes awesome and is freshly made. My only minor complaints are that it sometimes takes a while to get the food (I have called ahead, come by 20 minutes later and still not found my food ready) and that is a little pricy for a hole-in-the-wall. That said, my complaints fly out the window once I take a bite. Pros: Great food, Nice people Cons: Sometimes very slow, A little pricy more

head in the clouds 8/14/2003

what a yummy & cheap experience...delicious open-faced shrimp burrito w/ only the freshest ingredients & their special taco-y sauce...homemade lemonade sealed the deal...BUT the caramel cheesecake was the perfect cherry on top--it was gooey & sinful & so tasty--2 of us for just $20 and we left satisfied & FULL! Pros: food, service, piped-in music more

Don't blink or you'll miss Nirvana..... 6/12/2003

OK, where do I begin. Skys is not like any place you have been before. When you enter the doorway, the scent of garlic permeates everything. She puts garlic in just about everything. This, of course is good. Her shrimp tacos are fabulous, as are her steak rendition. The burritos are served open faced, sort of tostada like, and are super, but thats another issue. Her Sky Burger, beef or turkey is 7oz served up on grilled sourdough. The chili will keep you coming back and is just another excuse to load something up with more garlic. Mmmmm. But the one thing Skys has that is no where else to be found is Sky herself. This lady will not be happy until you are. The extra care she gives each customer along with the kitchen staff is just not present anymore. This is a real find. Pros: Sky, herself, Clean, Clean, Clean, Nice Music Cons: Parking, No Sundays more
