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: Las Cazuelas Grill

The whole gas station Mexican food thing sort of started here for me.  It started at a Las Cazuelas Grill, but one in Dearborn, Michigan where I spent quite a few lunches downing their Las Cazuelas tacos – a loosely folded deep-fried taco topped with lettuce, cheese and sour cream.  The Dearborn location didn’t sell street tacos […]

Review: El Rincon del D.F.

Advertising a gas station taqueria comes in many forms. Usually there is some sort of signage to the side of the station’s mini-mart letting visitors know tacos are inside.  Sometimes there are full-scale restaurants attached to the side of a service station market like a recent find in Marble Falls, TX.  Some stations combine promoting […]

Review: Habaneros The Taco Revolution

One night after trying to head back to Dallas after a Texas Rangers game I passed a Valero gas station with a flashy red habanero pepper shouting “The Taco Revolution.” Its signage looked chain-like similar to Grapevine’s Green Chili Grill (neither are chains.) I eventually found an entrance to the freeway that wasn’t blocked-off by […]

Breakfast Tacos at The Green Spot

Review: Breakfast Tacos at The Green Spot

The Green Spot gas station is in a league of its own.  Having reviewed their lunch taco options a couple month s ago, it was clear this place is not the ordinary gas station or taco stand.  The success here has already led to one spin-off when the original Taqueria Good 2 Go Taco moved […]

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: 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: 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 […]
