Granny's Tacos
703 long Ave
fort Worth

Ran in an old gas station. Tacos are off the chain. Cash only. You only need 5 or 6 bucks cause 1 taco is gonna be all you need. Nowhere to sit but an old picnic table outside.

El Paisa on Harry Hines is pretty good. I like my tacos with sides (beans/rice) so if they don't serve that...I usually don't go back

Ever been to burrito loco in grapevine? It's been a while since I've been there, but they are also pretty good.
I haven't been to El Taco H in years. 5-6, at least.

Have not been to Burrito Loco.

This man right here knows what he's taking about, although these are more of burritos than tacos. Best tacos I've had are from jb junior's off of 25th street near the stockyards. Hands down my favorite I usually go with AL pastor.

Actually I think Jared hated it. He thought the tacos were small. Hell they were only a buck (that was also about 5-6 years ago) so just buy more!

My recommendation is to get Carnitas and/or Carne Asada tacos, and/or a Ceviche tostada. Their Al Pastor is kind of disappointing actually.

Their carnitas are the best I've had anywhere. The steak is right up there, but sometimes it's cold or stale. You know how it can be. And the ceviche is spicy and fresh, and served over guacamole spread on a tostada. Fucking amazing.

Red salsa is decent, green salsa has a little heat and a tartness that goes great with onion and cilantro. Their salsa bar has onions and jalapenos marinated in soy sauce with a little liquid smoke. Sounds weird, and I have no idea what you call it, but it adds a good saltiness to the tacos. I skip the habanero salsa because the flavor is usually bland and its hot as hell.

One downside, sometimes they get very aggressive with the oil when getting the corn tortillas prepared and it can gross you out with it dripping all over the place. Pro tip, you can order a frozen margarita from Baja Grill on the El Taco H side.

Actually, I like El Taco H a lot. I was eating there all the time when I worked in Grapevine. The tacos are small, but no different than most street tacos I've had. I usually order 8 at a time, and I don't mess with anything but the carnitas. I wasn't a big fan the first time I went with you guys, but I just didn't get the right thing (I think I ordered a big steak burrito or something that time). I haven't had anything there that comes close to their carnitas. I like the green salsa the best, although I usually put the hot stuff on a couple of them.

And yes, they are usually swimming in grease. It's pretty ridiculous. I just call it "taco juice" and go to town, making sure to have a ton of paper towels ready to go.

There is a place in Mansfield on the corner of New York and Mansfield Webb, not far from the TCC Southeast campus. I don't even think it has a name on the building. Anyway, they can be hit or miss, but when they're good, they are damn good. Still not as good as El Taco H.

Does anyone know what the heck the "H" stands for?

Side note - the Baja Grill attached (same owners) has been pretty bad every time I've been. Not sure why. It commonly smells like sewage in there, too.

Man! I had no idea you changed your tune on El Taco H. Give me a shout if you ever come in town, I'm always down for some tacos there.

Pretty sure it's just meant to be a silly name, as the way it rolls off the tongue in Spanish is "el taco ah-cheh." In Spanish, el tacuache means possum. It's just a quirky thing in Mexican culture, like all the luchador décor in there.

if anyone likes real Mexican street tacos here is what are to me the best locations

1. La Paisanita
on division in oak cliff area, real good fagina and lengua

2. Salsa verde
on harry hines conveniently located in front of the QT I buy e85 from
good fagina tacos, chorizo tacos, carnitas, tripas

these two places have my wife hooked and she is super picky when it comes to food!

I don't bag my own groceries, make my own sandwiches, and I damn sure am not making my own Doritos dust.

Those places have names? I always thought street tacos were just mexicans cooking like mad inside an old converted RV.

Tried a few, some were good, others weren't. Always had to ... wonder, if I'd get food poisoning or at least blow out the 'ol sphincter at the next trip to the restroom. Thus I tend to stick to the same 2, and not venture outside those.

EL Taco H is an actual store front connected to a Baja grill in Grapevine. Good place.


Taco Naan ( indian tacos, weird, right? ) is actually pretty decent in Coppell.
