This taqueria has its own sign on the façade of the building it shares with a gas station, market, convenience store and cell phone vendor but not its own entrance.

Enter through the convenience store and make your way to the back for some excellent, coarse corn tortillas and a red-and-yellow menu dotted with tacos that pack flavor and value.

The various meats can be ordered in taco, quesadilla, burrito and gordita forms. The half-dozen tacos all run $2.15 and the lengua was a perfect version of the form, supple and smooth with the brace of iron and a shower of cilantro and onions putting a piquant floral coat over the meat.

Order the salty, seared fajita beef topped with egg. They don’t scramble the egg; they fry it on the flat to a puffed over-medium and chop it in strips, the gold mineraly yolks cooked just to the point where they don’t ooze. Top them with a fierce creamy jalapeno or ruddy chile de arbol.
