Taqueria del Valle


“Lucy, we’re home!” is a sentiment locals feel when they come to “Lucy’s”… a.k.a. Taqueria Del Valle. Lucy Zarazua and her cousin Robert, who’s been cooking with her for two decades plus, welcome all who enter with a big smile and greeting.

Lucy’s small and immaculate taqueria serves delicious authentic Mexican food. Locals all have their favorites from the menu …”her chili verde burrito, enchiladas, super nachos and tacos, ‘the best’ Mexican salad … vegetarian items and fresh taco chips with a great salsa bar… Lucy’s home made fluffy chili rellenos, carnitas lime chicken asada, tamale or her amazing ‘flan’, that is if you have room for dessert, if not, take it home!” Lucy says she loves what she does (that’s obvious!) and Carmel Valley and the people who live here… The bottom line is that locals have been coming here for over 20 years to taste her love.

Taqueria Del Valle is located in the middle of the wine tasting rooms at White Oaks Plaza in the Carmel Valley Village.
