Best Tacos in Mid-Atlantic - R & R Taqueria Rt. 175 & Rt. 1

RicardotheGringo | May 11, 201010:26 AM     4

So. I am not usually a compulsive taco eater. However, I do love mexican food and my wife loves it even more. So on my birthday, Cinco De Mayo, my good friend took me out to lunch. He said we are going to "The best Mexican food his Peruvian friend has had since coming to America."

It's called R & R Taqueria / R & R Cafe. And get this, he tells me it is inside a gas station! OK, so I'm a bit worried. Great Mexican foord in a gas station? At least it was a Shell Station instead of some no name fill up shack.

As soon as I got my tacos i was a convert! We're talking an instant conversion! I had the Tacos Al Carnitos, the Tacos Al (Lamb), and the Tacos Al Pastor. If you you are only going to try one flavor. Go for the Tacos all Pastor!

It's been less than a week and I have been back to R & R more than 8 times. I've taken my wife and son with me and I now on a first name basis with Rodrigo. At $2.00 a taco, it has become my favorite lunch stop.

If you want to experience taco bliss, go to the Shell Station at the intersection of Rt. 175 and Rt. 1 right off I-95 at exit 41.
