If you’ve ever driven by Rundberg and Lamar after dark, you’ve probably noticed a parking lot that’s almost packed to capacity. And part of that is the line of cars in the drive-thru line at El Tacorrido, another late-night taco spot in the same lot. But the rest of the crowd is here for Tacos El Charly, a cash only taco truck that doesn’t even open its doors (windows?) until 7pm. All the classic fillings are covered here, but the al pastor—cooked on a trompo—is the reason to keep coming back. Grab a seat at one of the folding tables in the parking lot after making it through the inevitable line (it moves very fast) and get comfortable. There’s live music most nights, and occasionally other vendors selling desserts.
