Taqueria Zacatecas


One of the most gringo-friendly taco stands in town
That's right: they've got all your favorite taco stand fare (elotes, tortas, Mexican cokes and of course, TACOS!), the person at the window usually speaks fairly decent English and you can pay with a card! If you're a bit nervous about being a big white fish out of water, you won't be here.

On top of all that, the food is good. The tacos are delicious, with tender, flavorful meat and just enough cilantro and onion to set it off. This is one of the few places that I've found that puts carne guisada (Mexican beef stew) on a taco, and it's fantastic. Try an elote. I don't even like corn, but these sweet cups full of off-the-cobb goodness that you can order with mayonnaise or sour cream mixed in are pure heaven. Extra toppings for elotes (hot sauce, butter, mayo, parmesan cheese, etc.) are on the counter.

Make no bones about it, though, it's a stand. You either sit on the picnic tables outside (which are always pretty clean and nice on warm, sunny days) or take it to go. If you forgot to bring cash along and want to sit inside, there's Taqueria Arandas, but the tacos aren't as good there.
