Taqueria De Anda, 1690 S. Garey Ave. (at Franklin), Pomona
A friend recently ate at a taqueria on South Garey but couldn’t remember the name. The only one I knew of was Taqueria De Anda, which I recall enjoying once maybe six years ago, but never wrote about here. I went back to try it again.
The freestanding restaurant, which has a drive-thru, is neat and clean, with tiled floors, a muted color scheme and art on the walls. And they have tables and chairs. It’s relatively upscale for a 24-hour taqueria where you order at the counter directly from the cook.
Tuesday was my lucky day: That day’s special is 99-cent tacos, cheaper than the usual $1.37. I ordered three carne asadas and a jamaica drink, for a total of $4.71. The tacos were excellent, generous with the meat and cilantro and with a tasty salsa. They’re some of the better tacos I’ve had in Pomona.
They also have burritos and quesadillas, but that’s it. Basic menu, quality food. I emailed a photo of the restaurant to my friend, who replied, “Yes! That’s it! So good!”
