The best barbacoa Chowhound user Yummy Sound‘s tasted in a long time is at a small, family-run Mexican food stand, El Ojo de Agua. The barbacoa is perfectly salted and moist, Yummy Sound noted in a recent discussion on Chowhound. Each hefty order comes with excellent handmade corn tortillas and consommé with garbanzo beans—ask for a small bowl of roasted jalapeños on the side.

There are also several uncommon antojitos on the menu here. The huitlacoche quesadilla is good, but Yummy Sound thinks the squash blossom one is even better. And the huaraches—thick oval corn tortillas, fried, smeared with beans, and topped with lettuce, cheese, and avocados—are delicious.
