Taco Chido is a weird place with good tacos. The restaurant looks like it was decorated by a high school goth with a passion for estate sales. Tinted windows darken a dining room with retro diner chairs, inverted candelabras hanging from the ceiling, and a back wall with more graffiti scribbles than a popular kid’s yearbook. Our favorite tacos here are al pastor and cochinita pibil. The al pastor is juicy, sweet, and slightly smoky. And the conchita pibil tacos are tangy, tender, and savory. Both use housemade tortillas, too. You place your order at the touch screen and then enjoy your tacos under the slowly shifting lava lamp colors of the dining room.
