Tacos Al Carbon

4420 Lake Worth Road Lake Worth, FL 33461 | Lake Worth | 561-432-8474

Location Description:

A dusty lot off of Military Trail and Lake Worth Road is home to Tacos al Carbon, a destination for authentic Mexican food served 24/7. There are more than a dozen varieties of tacos, from chewy lengua to chicharron to carne asada, each inexpensive, each served with cilantro, lime, and onion in a pliant, fresh corn tortilla. Splash a little ultrahot orange salsa on there and your late-night taco binge will be complete. During the day, the taco trucks parked there spread out like worker bees to distribute the goods. At night, they return to a packed lot. You can even tell a bit about the patron by which window he orders from: A younger crowd gathers at the brick-and-mortar building on the east side, while adventure-seekers and buzzing party folk congregate by the food trucks parked in the west lot.
