Just a few months after opening his latest venture, Stephan Pyles is already tweaking Stampede 66. The homage to his hometown roots integrates cuisine from across the great state of Texas. Now Pyles is rethinking the idea of so much in one menu.
“My initial intent was to give diners a sampling of Texas foods cut from a broad cloth. In retrospect, I have come to realize the menu is perhaps too broad and tries to encompass too much. Streamlining the menu a bit will help the kitchen focus more intently on each of the items that remain,” said Pyles. Continue reading
Monday was the official opening of Tacos & Avocados in Roanoke. It was only a week ago that Cowboy Chow shut the doors for renovations in preparation for the new culinary direction of T&A. As expected, the team behind Chef Jason Boso created a restaurant heavy on atmosphere, perfect for local families during the day and folks wanting a good time at night. Continue reading
Taqueria Pinocho is located conveniently off Abram and Carroll Ave in a small shopping center, known as one of Dallas’s ‘authentic’ taco shops.

The next guy hands you the tacos and 3 different types of salsas – green jalapeno, pico de gallo and red guajillo chili sauce. Tacos range in price anywhere from $1.10 to $1.35 depending on your tortilla. Continue reading
I can remember growing up as a child and watching my grandma stuff shredded beef and pork into a delightful and delicious hand-made and fresh corn tortilla. A very fond memory into what has become quite the popular food item for many these days – the taco. As for me, looking for the quintessential taco these days has become a challenge. I grew up loving tacos. Being that I was raised eating Mexican food, I held very high standards when it came to tacos. My grandma always used the word ‘Sazon’ when it came to her preparation of tacos. People always complimented her tacos and always said it was her ‘Sazon’ that made her tacos so delicious.

There is a man roaming the streets of Dallas with a mission. He is the undisputed king of tacos and is the editor of the Dallas Taco Trail. José Ralat-Maldonado is a fun loving aficionado of tacos and loves good craft beer and life in general. His positive outlook on life is infectious as his love for tacos.
I caught up with Jose just off the heels of a taco inspection at a local taqueria in Oak Cliff. The restaurant swore they had puffy tacos and were well worth inspection. Jose differs with their assessment and you are sure to read about the restaurant soon on his Taco Trail website. Continue reading
