Founded upon a generous and friendly attitude in April, 1974, El Taco Real in Hammond has been bringing fresh food to the region with family recipes from the Garcia family. Raymundo Alcorta Garcia so loved his wife’s cooking that he told her, Esther Anguiano Garcia, that she should open a restaurant, which they did. Since then, the family serves the region their delectable authentic Mexican cuisine, tantalizing new diners to return, and satisfying thousands of regulars. They have a smokeless environment for the comfort of all diners and specialties include carne asada, polle con mole, and traditional menudo, a tripe soup in a chile ancho, beef stock, and all the trimmings with a serving of tortillas.

Owner Raymundo Garcia says that the dedication of the staff is what sets their restaurant apart, along with the family recipes. “We are very proud of what we do here. That’s really the critical issue. We are proud of what we’ve accomplished over the years. We think of our restaurant as our family home. The pride in our product, from the guys watching the dishes, to the ladies cooking the meals, serving the meals, bussing the tables, we won’t send any food out without looking at the presentation three times and making sure every plate is polished,” Garcia says.
