Hidden Taco Gem Found

by Bryan Coonrod
While roaming around The Harbor in Rockwall last Thursday during the concert series at the lake I started to get a little hungry but with so many people out there the sit down restaurants were pretty full. As I started to see if there were any street vendors there I came across a small taco stand called Tacos Del Potrillo a side business from it’s main restaurant called El Potrillo De La Sandia located on the North side of The Harbor by the large fountain.
These were some of the best street tacos that I have had and I would put them up against all the top contenders from Crave’s taco tour. They are $2 each or 3 for $5 and you can choose from Barbacoa, Pastor, Beef and Chicken Fajita and Chorizo also you can wash it down with horchata. I tried the Barbacoa and Beef Fajita and the meat on both were plentiful and packed with flavor, these were mouth watering good people. The stand is ran by three generations of a family consisting of the mother, daughter and grand daughter and is only open at night on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Another plus to this stand is that the tacos served are not available at their restaurant only at the stand. So with the concert series getting in full swing on Thursdays make plans to take the family out to Rockwall for a free concert and grab some awesome tacos even though these tacos are worth the trip alone.
The stand is located by Cold Stone Creamery by the walkway that leads to the Cinemark Theatre.
