I’ve heard a lot of good things about this Taqueria and I was excited to finally check it out. Like most on BH they have parking in their strip mall lot. We came for dinner during the World Cup and they had the game on which provided a nice atmosphere. It was smaller than I expected on the inside although they had a back section closed off. Because of the World Cup it was quite loud and hard to hear the waitress but she was friendly and mostly attentive.
You get chips and salsa to start and I have to admit the salsa is yummy. A little spice not too much and I thought the chips were good. A little thicker than your standard “Mexican” restaurants.
We heard so many good things about the tacos we both opted for the Tacos. We opted for the hand made tortillas for all of our tacos except the one mini taco we got. So here is what we tried I’ll start with the ones we did not care for as much:
-Pollo- The chicken taco was very dry and not flavorful. I’ve actually probably had better at standard Mexican restaurants. It was a real disappointment
-Asada- This was a little better but I was pretty underwhelmed
The rest of our meal was much better though…….
-Chorizo- the Mexican sausage was very good. Lots of flavor and enjoyable. A little spicy
-Cabeza- The Cows Cheek was the one mini taco we got. I’ve never had Cows cheek but I wanted to try it… It was delicious. Tender and yummy.
-Al Pastor – the pork butt and steak was fantastic probably the best we had beating out the Cabeza by a small margin.
We tried combos of their red and green sauce which were fun but in the end I think I liked the salsa so much id just use that next time.
If you want roasted onions with the tacos you have to ask but they are happy to add them.
I think if I come back for taco’s I’ll try some of the other meats and leave the chicken and stead alone. Also I’d love to try the other menu items. I know this joint has a reputation for a late night place to and I imagine at 4am in the morning it’s pretty top notch stuff.
I felt like if I had not had the chicken and steak I would give this four stars but because it was a little inconsistent I went with three. This is a place worth going to though. I liked the atmosphere and the some of the food choices were great.
