What it is: A small taqueria (really small, as in pretty much just this window and a door and a continually packed, equally tiny parking lot) that serves authentic tacos, burritos, and quesadillas (and inauthentic ones too, if that’s your thing). Located at 1138 E High St, not far from the downtown mall. Open Tuesday through Saturday–I have been disappointed many a Monday.
Why it’s rad: There isn’t too much to say about this charming hole in the wall taqueria except for TWO DOLLAR TACOS! Which are some of the best, most satisfying things I’ve ever eaten. A variety of meats and vegetarian fillings and toppings to choose from, though I usually get them Mexicana style, which is just onions, cilantro and lime. They also make their own tortillas, which are available to purchase on Saturdays only, if you want to have your own taco night. They also have Mexican coke for sale (Coke made from real sugar, no corn syrup, bottled in Mexico), which is delicious and kills the heat perfectly if you choose an overly-spicy salsa.
