Tacos el Gordo6
Why locals love it
It's a Mexican chain that opened up several locations north of the border. People in the largely Mexican community love coming here for fantastic tacos al pastor style tacos, called 'adobada,' their signature. It's undeniably in-your-face Mexican, with chefs standing behind the counter that will greet you in Spanish unless you respond in English.
Why you should visit it
This is some of the best Tijuana style street tacos you'll find north of the border. There are other places in the city as good, but this one comes with all the bells and whistles, especially past midnight. They also serve meats less common in American food, like tongue, tripe, and even brain. Try some if you're feeling adventurous.
You can order grilled green onions and peppers from the middle. You can also order meats in the form of quesadillas, mulitas, sopes, and more.
