The Talpa Restaurant calificaciones y reseñas
We were there several months ago and it was delicious. The food we had last week did not compare. Don't know what happened? It was old style authentic Mexican with refried beans and delicious rice. This time the beans were black and the cheese wasn't even melted on the top. Tacos were not up to par. My tostada was a huge pile of lettuce, enough chicken, with a bit of guacamole, tomato and no cheese at all.
The chicken taquitos were the best of all the food we had. Don't think we will be back. Unfortunately, something has radically changed. So sorry.
My husband and I have been going here for almost 4 decades. With so many great Mexican restaurants in LA, we like to experiment and try them all. But we always "come home" to Talpa. It changed ownership a few years ago, as the original owners finally retired, but the new owner has retained the quality of the food, and has added a full bar. If you want real Jalisco style "comfort" Mexican food, and not a new-wave Mexican tapas bar or an oversized burrito, this is your place. Salsa is just delicious roasted chiles, and guacamole is old style (no lobster or uni in this guacamole) It's old school, but as we are one of many customers who have been enjoying their food for a very long time, they will hopefully always be open for us to enjoy.
We've been coming here for years, and the food has been consistently good. The service has changed somewhat with the recent change of ownership, and is much less friendly, but still polite. It's a small, casual place to go and just relax.
UPDATE: April , 2017: it is with a lot of regret that I have to report that the food has really declined since a change in management....and when we stood up last time and noticed it now has a "C" health department rating....well say no more. My friends in the restaurant business say you have to be really bad to get a "C". Really sad to take this one off my list.
i've been coming to the Talpa for about 35 years....my husband more like 40. Despite the long-time owners selling a few years back, the new owner has done his best to add a full bar, spruce up the furnishings a bit, and still (and most importantly) keep the food great. If you want terrific home style Mexican food, this is the place to go. There's a lot of great Mexican in LA, but this is our "comfort" stop....and we are not the only ones who have been coming here for decades. There's a reason for that...WAAAY before OpenTable and Yelp came along, we all promoted this little place by word of mouth for a reason.
Love this authentic place, my husband and his aunt used to come here in the late 80's an they say the place hasn't changed. The food is delicious but and spicy. Don't be a fool and go to the place next door, come to Talpa where the food is amazing and authentic, not foo foo.
