This tiny taco shop sandwiched in between a bar and a pet store in Western Davie feels just like an authentic Mexico City taco stand. The storefront is impossibly small and narrow, with one table inside and two out front. Adding to the vibe are the lines that form throughout the day, with Latin folks, locals, and workers from the nearby industrial park each looking to get their taco fix. Trompo (another word for al pastor) is the house specialty. The spicy pork is coated with ancho chile seasoning and napped into small corn tortillas, making five mini tacos that are good for a couple bites each. Or it's stuffed into gigantic burritos alongside rice, beans, Chihuahua cheese, and fresh pico de gallo. Each of the other guisados (fillings) we tried was bursting with flavor, from marinated asado chicken shredded up with spicy sauce to chicharron (crispy pork rinds married with salsa verde). The later makes about the best topping you could ask for on a tostada-like fried sope. The staff is amazingly cheerful and the line is impeccably clean (you can see the entirety of it from the front counter). Add to that low prices, and you've got one helluva taco shop out west.
