IMG_0744

We recently ran a look at  Tacodeli and have never been more pleased with a lunch in a very, very long time. They are looking to expand more in the Dallas area and now have a third location scheduled for Plano. The only downside to Tacodeli is they only do breakfast and lunch. However, this is one of the interesting aspects to the restaurant and something that makes it particularly good. The employees are snap happy and it shows.  Continue reading

Taqueria Cristina Surprises The Hell Out Of Me

by Steven Doyle

I had to stop in Taqueria Cristina this week if for no other reason than to sample their black bean dip served with the complimentary chips and salsa. The chips are forgettable, but they are more than redeemed once you sample the very spicy and very smoky salsa; but oh that black bean dip. It is not thick or chunky, but instead smooth and velvety with a huge power punch of flavor.    Continue reading

The man definitely knows meat and he is also familiar with what the people in North Texas want to eat. Assi opened Crush Taco a little over a year ago and has been crushing the taco scene since.

A Trompo Taco with Benefits

fox1by Steven Doyle

There is actually no excuse to be on Harry Hines unless you are looking for a good price on a dozen cheap sunglasses, a used tire on the DL, or trying to make your way from north to south very quickly. Or if you are in need of a taco. The latter was the case yesterday and I found a nice one at this bizarre gas station that is really just a front for a lavenderia.   Continue reading
