  1. You are on a board that LOVES this place. Most everything is fresh and good: tacos, ceviche, great chile rellanos, horchata. Cheap, nice owners, the whole package. Best for lunch or a casual dinner.

      I wouldn't say it's cheap at all. $9 for my chicken nachos... is that cheap? or is that going rate?

        Going rate for a dish of quality. You could pay more at a chain...

          Tere's is relatively on the high side for a taco joint, but the food is very good. It's not the most comfortable place to eat in because of the lack of space.

            But the food is quite good, yet to me not a dining in for dinner kind of location - lunch would be fine.

      2. Their chili relleno burrito is excellent.

        1. Tere's is my favorite place in the my neighborhood. I agree w/David that the chile relleno burrito is excellent. The chile relleno is also great on its own. Their fish tacos (made w/sole) are awesome, and the guacamole is some of the best I've ever eaten. The owners are very nice, and the prices are decent. Needless to say, I'm a big fan of Tere's.

          One bit of advice, call ahead and order take-out if you don't want to wait as they get busy and the wait can be long.

          1. good fresh basic style food that is prepared fresh and with care. the chile relleno is perpared everyday and fried when ordered, which shows in the clean flavors and lack of greasiness. Lunch and drink around 10.00 most times Ive been there. Good deal.

            1. I eat there once a week. Great fresh mexican food and very friendly staff.

              I usually order the chile relleno burrito or vegetarian burrito
