La Internacional is a grocery store in Back of the Yards, and the first thing you need to do here is head to the taqueria in the back. There’s a serious taco operation happening back there, with a team of people seasoning and cooking meat, then assembling tacos with military precision. All the tacos are delicious, from the carnitas to the perfectly seared carne asada, and brimming over with filling. You can get them to go, but our favorite way to eat them is at the counter.
