- How long have you been on Olvera Street?
Our family has been on Olvera Street since the early 1930's.
- What hours are you open?
We open weekdays and Sunday from 9 a.m. till 11 p.m. and 9 a.m. till midnight Friday and Saturday.
- Do you take phone orders?
You can call ahead to order our raw taquitos by the dozen. Sorry, we cannot cook taquitos ahead of time because they are best eaten immediately after cooking.
- Do you deliver?
Sorry we do not.
- Do you ship your taquitos and sauce?
We are working on a method to ship our product overnight, but so far we are at the preliminary stages.
- How do you make the sauce?
It is an old family recipe. We believe it is the care and tradition that we add to our avocado sauce that gives it that wonderful taste.
- Do you cater?
Not usually, but you can make us an offer.
In the 1940's and 50's many movie stars frequented Olvera Street as some still do today. Among our Hollywood clients who loved our taquitos were Orson Wells and Rita Hayworth, as well as Marlon Brando. Occasionally they would ask us to cater a private party at their homes and who could refuse?
