Review: Taqueria el Guache

I walked into the Flash Mart convenience store turned to my right and walked to a wall with a door.  I wasn’t sure what was going on. I then exited out of the mart and walked across the store front passing a small wine section that must have been what the door inside was all […]

Review: Casa Grande

My last visit to Austin was a taco disappointment. Several people told me to try Torchy’s Tacos and I never did make it there, but I did stop at a gas station taco taqueria called Tierra Linda Taqueria. It was the only time I couldn’t finish what I started because the taste was so bad. […]

First Gas Station Taco GroupOn

I can’t really say for sure whether this is the first time GroupOn has offered a gas station taco deal, but I’m pretty sure it’s a good guess this is a first.  If you a fan of Fuel City Tacos and who isn’t? They are running a 50% off deal to get $6 worth of […]

Review: Taqueria Cholula

Chorizo tacos are underrated. I love it when I see chorizo on a lunch menu.  Taqueria Cholula had no shortage of options for the taco fanatic. Sure there are the typical beef fajita, chicken, pastor and barbacoa options. There are 14 total options; though, two were out on the day of my visit. Taqueria Cholula […]

Review: Taqueria Los Delicious

I live a food paradox. At home I cook using fresh, mostly organic and try to do local as much as possible. We also buy all of our meats from a local ranch in Grandview, Texas Burgundy Pasture Beef that raises grass-fed animals and our chicken from another local source, Windy Meadows Family Farm. In […]

Chevy Volt and Gas Station Tacos at The Flash Mart

Review: Flash Mart Barbacoa Tacos

I am fortunate enough this week to be driving around in a Chevy Volt, the electric gas engine vehicle from General Motors, designed to make less frequent gas station stops. After a couple days of driving, I’ve only put 3 miles on the car using the gas engine; the rest has been all electric powered […]

Review: El Tacaso (Harry Hines Location)

Gas station Taquerias are often not located in the desirable part of town. Pulling up to a gas station with a flashy bright red convertible can have its drawbacks and my visit to El Tacaso was one of those times. I began filling my tank and walked over to the outside counter of the taco […]

Review: Trompo Taco

I spent last Saturday morning at the Elm Fork Shooting Sports Club riding around in a golf cart holding a 12 and 20 gauge pair of shotguns with Mike Merrill from the Social Media Club of Dallas.  We had decided to take advantage of a Facebook Deal a month ago and finally made it out […]

Review: Taqueria La Tejanita

I was tipped off about Taqueria La Tejanita from a comment on another review I did on this blog (thank you Mary for mentioning it.) While Googling for a location, I also came across two reviews from some other Dallas taco bloggers I have met and popped Styrofoam containers with: Taco Sense and the Dallas […]

Review: Taqueria Fiesta Bravo

I was in Spokane, Washington on business travel this week spending some time in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. It was a part of the country I had only driven through on my way from Portland, Oregon to Michigan for college back in 1994 and again in 1995 when I made the same trip, but this time […]
