Tacos la Banqueta Opening On Carroll

DSC00197by Steven Doyle

Just weeks ago we noticed one of our favorite taco haunts, Tacos La Banqueta, closed its doors at its primary location at 4500 Bryan Street and replaced with a near facsimile, Taqueria Conin. The taqueria does a decent example of several tacos, including the suadero that made its predecessor so coveted, but not exactly.

This weekend we spotted a new Banqueta going up just feet away from its old post. Look for the new location at 1309 N Carroll. Work seems to be moving quickly, and we were told it would open soon.

This can only be good information.      Continue reading

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
