El Taco Chevere in Sterling

This is in the same strip as the clock tower on Rt 7. This is to the left of it as you look at it. After seeing this spot for a bit I finally stopped and tried for lunch today. Overall, very good. It has a few tables and is mainly poised for dine in service, though I really could only afford take out, timewise. Not knowing Spanish was an inconvenience though an irratible one b/c even I can order "dos tacos carnitas".

The tacos were quickly made, the traditional double corn tortillas. I also got one carne asada as well. The carne asada came with a nice red sauce while the carnitas came with a small dollop of pretty sublime guac.

Good meat, with a nice grilled flavor. Lots of meat on each. Crammed all three into a small to go container with a lime and a whole radish. I also got a very fine horchata. Everything I got was $2 each.

Pretty full menu, definitely had some Salvadoran items, and was probably Salv. by nationality.

There seems to be a few spots that are also worthwhile to check out. I'm only out there occasionally on a client call and otherwise for Babies R' Us. But near this place is a Persian Market that looks like it also serves hot food. THere's an interesting pizza place/deli there, a pho place and a kebab place around the corner. More also, but those have caught my eye the most in the past.

If anyone knows more about any of these places, please post - I'm interested and I know others have looked for Sterling eats.
