    Go for lunch. Order too much. Get a Gatorade at the gas station. Sit on the sidewalk in the parking lot. Maybe best dining experience of my life.

    All good but really recommend carne guisada. Way better quality and value than nearby El Chilito.

    As someone who isn't always a fan of cheese, I appreciate that these tacos don't automatically come with it.

    Tried breakfast tacos, barbacoa, and fish tacos here. Fish tacos were the clear winner... Unbelievably good!!

    At Taco-Mex's (should be patented) taco window, you put a li'l money in, hot tacos come out, you cover them with salsa, and you stuff them in your mouth. That's all there is, that's all you need.

    Walk the block down from El Chilito and get some much better tacos for a far more reasonable price. They're served out of a window for christsakes!

    Awesome - great folks run Taco-Mex! They let you bring your own place or bag to reduce waste.

    Try the nachos too, for a change of pace. $5 and they put any taco filling you want on them.

    Migas with no cheese + barbacoa and pico = breakfast and lunch for $3.75.
