It used to seem like you had to risk your safety for a tasty taco at Gallegos Mexican Food, a hole-in-the-wall restaurant wedged between a machine shop and a discount liquor store. But now it’s moved to a better location (with parking!), and the food is just as good, says chocolatetartguy. The complex mole is always a good bet, he says, but jumbo albóndigas (meatballs) in soup make for an ultra-satisfying meal, albeit one served only on Mondays.

“Though a bit salty for my taste, the tacos were great, and it’s a lovely family-run business,” says escargot3.
