I'm missing Mexican Inn/Taco Trader soft cheese tacos horribly! I grew up with their food. Does anyone have a good copycat recipe? It's looking like they are not re-opening.

One of my favorite places to stop for lunch. Great pork tacos. If you are looking to try something different, order their "Steak Taco Fries". Delicious!

Limited menu just like the Mexican Inn on the east side. That was my first taste of mexican food in the 60's. I understand some people dont like deep fried crispy tacos but I do on occasion. Those people shoud get the soft tacos.
