Review: El Burrito Near Disneyland

It’s been far too long since I’ve done a review on GasStationTacos.com.  Fortunately, I was heading to VidCon a couple weeks ago at the Anaheim Convention Center and drove past a Shell station with what looked like a legit gas station taco stop.  After the VidCon event, I decided to make a quick stop for […]

Review: Shell Station on Huntington Drive (El Sereno)

Commuting in Los Angeles is an art.  The fine art of traffic jam avoidance.  Even with in-vehicle navigation and the Internet, one still finds the best advice comes from word-of-mouth from those you know and, in this case, from people you work with every day. One evening I followed a co-worker who wanted to show […]

Review: Pancho Villa’s

I’m fairly certain I may be the only person ever to order a goat and vegetarian taco in a single order.  Sure, I cannot be certain of this fact; however, the sheer juxtaposition of the two tacos alone was an interesting jolt for my taste buds and stomach. Coming back from a long weekend in […]

Review: Taqueria El Infiernito

Not every gas station taqueria is inside the mini mart. Sometimes the taqueria sits next to the gas station and in this case they do not share buildings, they share cement steps.  If I can get some gas and order some tacos while the tank is refueling, then it’s a gas station taco stand to […]

Review: Super Taco

Half the fun of doing a gas station taco blog is the hunt.  I find out about places from people asking if I know such-and-such a place and searching Yelp and Google, but serendipity is still how I find most gas station taquerias. Driving back from San Antonio and spending a few hours in Fredericksburg, […]

Review: Tacos 4 You

Yelp is a great resource for finding hidden gas station taco locations. Awhile back, El Regio Taqueria came up in search, but it had one review and a sad 1 star review at that. So poor the reviewer commented, “Someone give me mint! I can’t get the taste out of my mouth!” I can’t say […]

Review: Rafa’s Mexican Food

Yelp is a goldmine when it comes to finding gas station taco places. Finding a taco worth reviewing in a city one is not familiar with can be a treacherous proposition, but thanks to some unknown food reviewers on a local review website it can be mitigated. Rafa’s Mexican Food is housed inside a very […]

Review: El Tacaso (Walnut Hill Location)

Under a red awning with white lettering reading “El Tacaso”, a red metal curtain covered what looked like an outside order window. Walking up to the Shell mini mart I wasn’t certain the taco stand still existed, but that thought was soon whisked away as I entered and noticed three small tables and a decent […]

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: Tierra Linda Taqueria

I was driving to South By Southwest (SxSW) last Friday morning and checked out Yelp before leaving Dallas en route to Austin, but I wasn’t planning my drive to the hotel or the Austin Convention Center. Nope, I was heading from my house straight to Tierra Linda Taqueria. Like a lot of gas station taco […]
