“That’s odd…Did I just stumble into a taqueria that looks like a KFC in rural Arkansas?” Yes, you did, but at Rancho Bravo you’ll find kickass tacos for less than $5, and nothing weird in the bathroom. Authenticity is the name of the game here, and takeout is always fast. But if you want to eat here, the back patio covered in twinkling string lights keeps the good vibes rolling, and the monsoon of spicy pork, chipotle crema, and cotija cheese keeps the taco salad counterproductive.
