    You have to get the cornmeal fried oyster taco—it's delicious and I've haven't heard of one anywhere else. Also, they make their own double layer red velvet cake that is worth saving room for.

    Knock on the back door, hand them $20 and in a few minutes a whole rotisserie chicken, 2 cups of elotes, 6 tortillas and sauces will be in your hand.

    Serves one heck of a lettuce-wrapped gem called the Ahi Poke. Asian in persuasion, this taco is spicy, crunchy and light.

    This is so much more than a taco place. The #19 is a revelation. As is the #6. And the corn. Get a margarita. Best value in Dallas. Ok I'm done.
