Tacos El Bronco Truck review image

Tacos El Bronco


37th St, Brooklyn
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

The Tacos El Bronco Truck is usually parked at the corner of 37th and 5th, and they make some of the best tacos in the city. Sure, these tacos are a little small - but they’re only $2.50 each, and the undersized tortilla is part of what sets them apart. (It creates the perfect ratio of filling-to-tortilla.) Try the cabeza if you want some rich chunks of veal head, or just go with the beef birria. When you order birria tacos here, the tortillas themselves stay remarkably crispy, despite being coated in a layer of rich beef drippings before they’re filled with hunks of meat that disintegrate when provoked. Also, the consomme here is spicier and tastes more prominently like tomato than other versions we’ve had. Assuming you like the combination of slightly sweet alium, chiles, and fatty beef, we’d recommend dipping your birria tacos in the consomme such that you get a couple of big raw onion pieces in every bite. If you’re in the area and interested in a sit-down experience, Tacos El Bronco has a brick and mortar restaurant (that also serves birria) on 4th Avenue.

There’s no wrong answer here. All roads lead to happiness.
