Best Tacos


This taco joint is so devilishly good that we'll forgo our fried-food ban and take an antacid instead (avocados are supposed to be good for you, right?). If we're feeling frisky we'll order the Dirty Sanchez. If we've made too many "your mom" jokes, we'll grab the Trailer Park; there's a taco to fit almost all of our moods. What started as a food trailer off Bouldin Creek at South First has turned into one of the city's favorite chains, having opened its ninth location in Round Rock this year.
