Don Felix: Why I Appreciate Chowhound

PaulF | Jan 22, 2007 06:14 PM

I would never have stopped in Don Felix for tacos if I hadn't read about it on this website.

It's nothing much to look at and the parking isn't great. And in my 'hood, there are so many other places to eat a taco, I might have stuck with the tried and true.

But I gave it a try and am really glad I did.

Excellent soft tacos. We had asada, pollo, and carnitas in various incarnations with the hot and mild salsa. We had one fish taco, too, but I didn't taste it.

Tacos are only a buck and a quarter, too. And you can grab a beer with them, ice cold. And the salsa on the side was as good as any I've ever had. I was practically sipping the stuff out of the little plastic cups.

My son also had this quesadilla like thing with jamon and queso and other things in it.

I will say this: If Tacomiendo has one thing going for it versus other tacos (like the ones at Don Felix) it's the fresh corn tortilla. Most places use the commercial kind, so it's tough to ding a place that does. But Tacomiendo uses them and it really motivates me to eat there ... that and I live around the corner.

But Don Felix is top notch and I plan to continue to explore the menu and try more tacos there.
