Tequila is the heart and soul of the southwestern Mexican state of Jalisco, the namesake of this corner taqueria—the perfect spot to line your stomach after a night of throwing down a few shots. Menacing sepia-toned portraits of Pancho Villa and his gang adorn the walls, but the real Mexican standoff comes when deciding which tacos to order. Lomo encebollada, hearty rib-eye chunks, are flat-top griddled to a perfect char with a hint of pink and tossed with caramelized onions. That and the achiote-marinated al pastor or the tangy chile relleno oozing with melted queso fresco are your best bets.
