Like on Central or South? Id like some good Al PAstor or Carnitas tacos.

I thought i read a while back that the city was running some of them off or charging more for permits.

If you are into tamales (from Houston, love that mexican poo) there's a good joint at the on Central right there at Kilborne. They also have great pastries. Never had the tacos.

I know it might not be as "taco stand esque" as you're looking for but I know for sure that Cantina on East Blvd. has both of those taco styles. They actually have both a Tex-Mex menu and a more authentic Mexican menu.

There's a good one on Eastway near Central. Right in front of where the used bookstore was for years.

I've recently discovered the La Unica in Indian Trail, best mexican I've found in the area, and we eat A LOT of mexican since the prego wife craves it 24/7

They had a Monterrey chef come by a few months ago and they've added a few more things to the menu. I usually stick with the Pollo Loredo, shrimp tacos, or the tradicional enchiladas.

I'm like you, but the fiance loves it.
