Looks like Cafeteria Y Loncheria El Padrino stepped up for another category win in our on-going People’s Choice Award for the almighty sandwich. Running a close second was Jimmy’s Food Store with their myriad of flavor combinations – including the much ballyhooed spicy Italian sausage.
We congratulate El Padrino for their delicious tortas, the Mexican answer to the sandwich that is made with bolillo, the football-shaped savory bread, and a whole host of fillings. Generally whatever the taqueria has on hand can make its way into the torta. Also popular might be the Cuban that is made of ham and roasted pork, or the Milanese that is made with frittered beef.
Certainly the taqueria mainstays remain popular including Al Pastor (marinated pork), Carne Asada (marinated steak), and many other combinations.
At El Padrino the stand outs are the tongue, chicken and beef fajita, and the ever popular veal. But you may also choose from breakfast fillings for your torta.
We once again congratulate El Padrino for the win for their tortas in the craveDFW People’s Choice Sandwich Award.
Also winning a free dinner for two at El Padrino is reader ‘Darren‘, who actually commented about Deli News, but will now be able to travel south of town for a sandwich of a different variety. Check your email!
We wish to remind everyone that this is your choice, so if you have a favorite food item in the awards… enlist your friends to vote!
