You're leaving Austin for good, take one taco with you and tell us why.

slowcoooked | Sep 3, 201401:42 PM     108

We all do it, we hit the latest craze a few times in a couple weeks, get all excited, spend too much money, settle down, and go back to our tried and trues.

The one taco I get two to one over any others in town combined, and have for 8 years, is the consistently rock solid, succulent, tender, deeply brown sauced, beefy, shredded cheddar topped, and perfectly spiced carne guisada on flour from mi madres picked up with a little of their ultra garlicky red salsa or the firey green jalapeno puree stuff (not on menu). I forgive their tiniest of flat tops / kitchen for not pumping out house made tortillas. Two of these and I'm out the door for 8.50 including tip, chips, and salsa and down only 30 minutes. If you like slow braised beef chuck, you at least should try these once.
