Taqueria Orale: Amazing

I've tried searching for the best tacos/burritos/tortas in the region, and noticed its a very common question. As a native San Diegan, I NEED to find the answer to this. I've tried the usual hyped suspects: El Charrito, San Vicente, Taqueria Poblano. The best I've found is not mentioned anywhere. Orale Taqueria on Richmond Highway in Alexandria (Fairfax County). Some may know where Taco Jaliso is, Orale is right across the street, almost down to Fort Belvoir. Their barbacoa was amazing, and their carnitas were excellent. Not sure how it stays in business as there is ZERO signage anywhere, and it is hidden in a breezeway of a run down Food Lion center, completely invisible from the roads. Just to keep it brief (I just posted a complete review on DC Sewer after eating there again today), they have like 10 meats to choose from to put in your torta, burrito or taco. I eat here everytime I have business at Belvoir, and it makes the trip wonderful every time. People that love TECC need to try Orale. The barbacoa is SO flavorful and wonderful in a burrito or torta. I hold it in as high a regard as I do El Charrito's goat taco.
