Located in a nondescript northside strip mall, this small Mexican grocery store and counter makes the best tacos in town. Go with the asada or rich and savory carnitas, and make liberal use of the red and green salsas that come with your order. You also can’t go wrong with any of the tamales, specifically the jalapeño and queso, which you can also buy in 12 packs for parties. It gets pretty busy during lunch and dinner, which is why we like it best for takeout, when cooking at home feels as daunting as performing brain surgery.
