Tacos El Gordo

I never knew what was special about tacos until I came to this place. True story.

Abobada Fries

Abobada (Spicy Pork) Fries

Yes, these fries taste as good as they look, but their tacos are even better! I don’t have a picture of their tacos though, sahwee.

For about $2 per taco, you get a generous portion of authentic, high quality, flavorful meat. Get it topped off with onions, cilantro, and guacamole for no additional charge! For $10 (or $6 for 1/2 an order as pictured above), you can get crispy fries topped off with your choice of meat (carne asada, abobada, or lengua), cheese, sour cream, and guacamole. Can’t decide which meat you want? Then order campechana fries to choose two! The abobada is my favorite ^__^

They have separate lines for their meats, so make sure not to stand in a random line and think that you can order anything you want once you get to the front..! Don’t get discouraged if the lines are long either because the food is worth the wait. The tender meat spinning and dripping with juices at each station, getting effortlessly shaved off by the cooks, is a beeeaaauutiful sight to see anyway.
