Dos Batos behind Northcross Mall

stopped by on a whim.

Very preliminary - in a strip mall, white walls, basic metal tables and a small counter with a grill behind.

Was taken aback when I discovered there are only two menu items. No. Seriously. You can either get a beef taco or a pork torta. Okaaay. Second shock - the taco was $7. yes...ONE taco...$7 on the dot with tax. My first thought was to turn and walk away, but the owners looked so earnest. sigh....okay. gimme a taco.

To their credit, they pulled out a fresh steak and grilled it on an open flame right there. Second, a nice FRESH tortilla is cooked on the griddle and it's a big dang tortilla. Then came oodles of fresh white cheese all melty on the top. Steak was diced and piled high. Taco was really quite good. Meat was seasoned just with salt and pepper and cheese was quite flavorful, tortilla was wonderful. Salsa was a nice smoky addition and I easily had two-thirds of it left over for dinner.
Charro beans, while flavorful and had plenty of jalapenos floating around, had hot dogs too. That's just weird.
