Taqueria Tlaxcalli
Taqueria Tlaxcalli

This colorful taqueria is named for the Nahuatl (an Aztecan language) word meaning “tortilla.” Sip a creamy, cinnamon-dusted horchata while a cook in the open kitchen works to the sound of Mexican rock & roll, stuffing flatbread rounds with plump shrimp and delicate, chopped tilapia, and garnishing them with diced onions, cilantro and lime juice. A list of special fillings—funky, crackling tripe; shreds of gelatinous, stick-to-your-teeth beef head—seriously ups the authenticity quotient.

This restaurant is a gem. I have had their tortas, burritos, tacos, tostadas, sopes, guac, fajitas, pollo and steak a la Mexicana, and my absolute favorite, chiles rellenos, and I am always satisfied. The prices are reasonable and the taste is unbeatable.

Everything! And I mean absolutely everything! Okay, so I haven't tried everything. A person can determine the quality of everything in a restaurant by eating the most basic dish in the restaurant. They have the most delicious chips served up as appetizers with a side of salsa. The chips are fried in house and are the most crunchy and savory tortilla chips I have had, ever! And don't get me started on their burrito! Every component, the rice, beans, meat, and everything else, come together "wrapped and decorated" with green, red, and white sauces like a present on Christmas morning! The size is enormous! They also have tacos, tostadas, fajitas, and more! There is s dish to please everybody. You will leave here more than satisfied!
