El Tacorrido has multiple locations around town, and more likely than not there will be a line of cars backed up in the drive thru. The breakfast tacos are consistent, dependable, and very affordable. While they have the standard red and green salsas, there's also the spicy and rich molcajete salsa, made with roasted tomato, jalapenos, and serranos. We’re most impressed with their dedication to a wide diversity of pork-based tacos, including a textbook carnitas taco and the revuelta taco, a triumvirate that combines cuerita, buche, and carnitas.
