MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Look for the telltale sign of this taqueria—that smoky gray exterior with hot pink trim—and you’ll know you’ve arrived at a local hot spot. Another sign? The throngs of people queued up at the Tijuana-style counter service-only joint.

It’s serious business inside, where there are different lines and windows depending on what you want, but those in the know make a beeline for the sweet and spicy adobado pork tacos. Feel your taste buds tingle as taqueros slice hunks of spicy meat from massive spit-roasted cones of crimson adobada. Then grab a tray and stacks of napkins, as food this good doesn't come without a mess. Unique cuts are on offer here, including tripe, pork cheek, tongue and brain. Mulas, vampiras and quesadillas round out the selection.
