The Poseidon at Mariscos Jalisco
Photograph: Jakob N. Layman The Poseidon at Mariscos Jalisco

One of the long-standing heroes of the old school taco trucks (aka loncheros), Mariscos Jalisco has earned a deservedly loyal and devoted following. Their signature tacos dorado de camaron lives up to the hype with flavorful and fresh shrimp folded into a corn tortilla that is then fried to a golden brown and topped with thick slices of avocado and a vibrant and complex salsa roja. You’ll also want to save room for their legendary tostadas like the Poseidon topped with shrimp ceviche, octopus and a fiery red aguachile of shrimp. Follow them on Twitter and don’t forget to bring cash.

The hype is well deserved - they make some fantastic food here. The Poseidon was far & away my favorite thing I tried - fresh, delicious, spicy, and incredibly flavorful. If you are a big fan of seafood and tostadas, it is worth the drive just to try it one day.
