La Tejana Taqueria

A liquor store that serves tacos? A taqueria that sells booze? However you describe La Tejana, you're likely to throw in such adjectives as "favorite" and "best." The food is that good. The menu, handwritten and taped to the wall, is basic: tacos, tortas and a few platters with meat, rice and refried beans. Try the tacos campechanos, a mixture of steak and chorizo, and the brawny, porcine tacos al pastor. The highlight is the weekend preparation of carnitas, crisp on the outside, tender inside, and outrageously flavorful.
