Take Out, Best Value: This is authentic Mexican cuisine with its roots in Mexico City and dishes featuring ingredients commonly used in Mexico but less so in the United States. Cheek meat, tongue and tripe are mainstays for the famous tacos, which are also offered with beef or fried or marinated pork. Cheek meat, tongue and milanesa, a breaded beef, appear in combo plates, and every kind of burrito is available, too. Although it has been winning awards for years for its tacos, green chile and chile rellenos, it's impossible to go wrong here if you like traditional Mexican food. While some aficionados recommend smothering pretty much everything in the deeply satisfying green chile--perhaps especially breakfast burritos and huevos rancheros, served all day starting at 7 a.m.--that may be an overstatement. Or not! Several kinds of chilaquiles are served, as are enchiladas, gorditas, flautas and quesadillas, among other items.
Breakfast: Tiny and brightly painted, this corner eatery is home to traditional Mexican eats offered at very affordable prices. The menu is expansive and in Spanish, but even first-timers can order a delicious meal without too much trouble. Favorites include tacos filled with your choice of cabeza (beef cheeks), carnitas, and even brains. Cilantro, lime, salsa, and onion dress them simply but flavorfully. Chiles rellenos, burritos, huevos rancheros, and green chili also turn customers into regulars. Refreshing fruit drinks and flan are among the sweet options at the end of your meal.
Local Expert Christine Loomis Says:
Best Value: "Too much tequila Friday night? Head to El Taco de Mexico for menudo, a beef honeycomb tripe soup with maize and spices known to cure hangovers and settle stomachs. It's only served Saturdays and Sundays and runs out quickly."
Recommended as Best Value Because: It's not just affordable food, it's also really, really good food.
