You can’t actually go inside Taqueria El Paisa. But this takeout spot makes the best tacos in Fort Lauderdale. They put so much meat in them, you can barely pinch together the top of the two-ply tortillas. Asada and pastor are great choices. But if it’s available, order a cabeza (slow-cooked cheek and head), lengua, or our favorite: chicharron simmered in salsa verde. All tacos are topped with onions, cilantro, and come with a side of sliced radishes and cucumbers. But also ask for chiles toreados if you want roasted jalapeños (you do). You can order at the window and eat your tacos on a bench, but food can take around 20 minutes, so call in your order if you’re in a rush.
