Everybody likes to think that the little truck down the street from their house makes the best tacos in the city. But those living in Windsor Park might have a legitimate claim. The street tacos at El Buen Taquero are tiny but carried out with the grizzled expertise of someone who grew up on an exclusive diet of well-seasoned, crispy pork. The trailer manages to fit a full-sized trompo in its tiny doors, and the meat that comes off it might be the best al pastor in Austin. And the corn tortilla holding it all arrives still bubbling from its brief residency on the flat top. Get it in a taco or in a housemade gordita—this little taco truck packs a menu the size of a restaurant, complete with sopes, enchiladas, and even a whole fried fish served on a platter.
