I've been eating at this place 2-3 times a month for the past couple of years, so thought it about time I did a write-up on it.
For me, this is the best taco place around, but I'll admit to not trying all that many places.
La Mexicana 3 is located in a strip mall on North Perry, just south of Pontiac Road (next to a Secretary of State office).
I'm not really sure if this is Pontiac or Auburn Hills, probably Pontiac.

I almost always order three tacos (pastor, carne, chorizo = pork, steak, sausage). They also offer chicken and beef tongue tacos.
Sometimes I'll also get a chile relleno.

The tacos, to me, are "done right."
They come with the meat, onions and cilantro, on a double corn tortilla. Slices of lemon on the side. Also a red sauce and a green sauce on the side.
Todays steak taco was a bit grizzly. The pork was excellent, and the chorizo is always my favorite - not overly spicy, just a little spicy.
Every table gets a basket of chips, and some homemade salsa. The salsa is a bit spicy, probably medium or just above medium on most scales, and includes tomato, chunks of onion, jalapeno, and cilantro.

Give this place a try if you are in the area.

The attached super mercado is full of mexican food ingredients, and the meat counter has tripe, feet, etc.
