La Verdad--3 out of 4 is pretty damn good

First of all, loved the guac and chips. Great, fresh, thick chips sprinkled with the same cojita cheese that's on the grilled corn, and as for the guac--I know some have mentioned they'd prefer it with a chile bite, but for me very simple avo and citrus mash is a refreshing treat.
Tried 3 tacos: pollo pibil, pastor traditionale and shrimp in governor sauce. Only the former disappointed--chicken was dry. But the other 2 had more flavor than I knew what to do with; they were dripping all over the place.
They are small but they're piled pretty high.
DC had the chile relleno-stuffed torta. It was HUGE, at least 1.5 times the size of Lupita's--which I adore--and looked remarkable. Gotta do that next, and a margarita.

Place was nice and quiet, too.
