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: Los Tapatios

If you are looking for TexMex at a gas station, Los Tapatios may be the place for you.  The reviews on Yelp and Google average 4 out of 5 stars with several reviews praising the authenticity of the food, similar to what you’ll find in Mexico (Guadalajara, Mexico I would guess based on the name […]

Review: Tacos Cantu

It was a couple weekends ago when I attempted to try Tacos Cantu after a Texas Rangers baseball game. Unfortunately, it was quite late and the taco stand was closed.  Also, this fairly deserted area between Arlington and Fort Worth was a bit more shady at night than I expected.  So, my friend and I […]

Review: Abierto

You know a gas station takes its taqueria seriously when it invests in a lighted sign and custom awning. That’s what Abierto did when it became part of a Texaco station on Inwood in Dallas, Texas. The day I stopped by for lunch there were four people waiting for their orders and inside sat an […]

Review: El Taco

We were coming back from Southlake, a suburb Northwest of Dallas, and were trying to get to a Costco off the Dallas North Tollway.  I was without my iPhone as it slipped out of my shirt pocket earlier in the day while pulling up my son Oscar’s pants in a Five Guys restroom landing in […]

Fuel City Lunch Crowd

Review: Fuel City

There is a reigning champion of the gas station taco in Dallas, Texas – Fuel City.  When ever I tell someone or they hear I’m a fan of gas station tacos, they usually will ask if I have tried Fuel City.  Well I have, a few times.  In fact, I’ve tried all versions of their […]

Best Taco Taqueria

Review: Best Taco Taqueria

Unfortunately calling yourself “Best Taco…” isn’t a self-fulfilling prophesy.  Decent Taco Taqueria would’ve been a more accurate description. In the shadow of Dallas’ popular Fuel City Tacos is a small Taqueria inside a Valero gas station in the Oak Cliff/West Dallas area. For those who don’t know, myself being one until I drove to this […]

Review: Troy Taqueria

I made two gas station taco stops on my way to Austin last Friday.  The Troy Tanqueria was an unplanned stop as I noticed a Tanqueria sign while passing an exit heading South on I-35. Unfortunately very few gas stations advertise they have food on a billboard or on a next exit sign, so you […]
