El Cactus Tacos - Tacos Mineros?

Sam B | Jul 16, 2007 05:23 PM

Have dined now several times at El Cactus Tacos, a new taqueria in Boyes Hot Springs. On the first visit (right after they opened), I watched as they pressed out fresh tortillas for each order. They were sublime! we tried the three meats available that night - Pierna, Birria, and Asada - all were excellent.

On a subsequent visit, I had a Torta de Pierna which was good, but not great

On the last visit we again had tacos, sadly on commercial tortillas. They were great none the less. Posted on the wall (missing the first two visits) was a menu featuring among other things, "Tacos Mineros" I asked about them but couldn't quite understand what they were. The waitress mentioned mexican sausage, which I presume is Chorizo, but said that the tacos were boiled, which left me wondering...

Anyone familiar with Tacos Mineros (miner's style)?
