It’s hard to say this spot is hidden, given that it routinely wins accolades from various local media outlets. Still, you’ll feel like you’ve stumbled upon a glorious secret. This is true taco truck fare, in the best sense, which means you actually have the rare opportunity to order a cabeza taco—a taco filled with cheek meat. It’s tender, fatty and almost overwhelmingly delicious, topped with a big slab of avocado that nicely cuts the flavor intensity.
