There’s always a long line at Taqueria El Si Hay, and you can use that time to calculate every possible $5 order combination, before you end up getting four of the chicken tacos and an al pastor. It’s cash-only, there’s no seating (plan on either eating on the curb or in your car), and since it’s in Bishop Arts, it’s going to be a bit of a drive from central Dallas, but despite all of that, everyone you see there will tell you it’s still worth it. And if you’ve never been before, you can actually test out that math you did earlier and try every type of taco on the menu.
