Tacos El Muchacho Alegre


751 Jackson St, Napa
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

There’s a big Mexican community in Napa, so you’ll find plenty of quality tacos, including the incredible Mexico City-style ones from the Tacos El Muchacho truck, permanently parked behind an auto body shop off Soscol Avenue. There are a few chairs and tables in the driveway, but let’s face it, you’re probably just going to eat your tacos standing in the street or in your car. You really can’t go wrong with any of the tacos, filled with everything from chicken to tripa, topped with signature sauce and grilled onions by request—just know they’re small and if you’re hungry, it’s easy to eat four of them. If you’re looking for something bigger, ask for the very popular off-menu torta ahogada. You’ll be handed a tomato and chili sauce-drenched torta sandwich filled with the meat of your choice—we go for the birria or al pastor.
