WHY It’s a place of tremendous simplicity: you got your hot-from-the-fryer fish tacos ($1.50) and your shrimp tacos ($2), and you can buy a canned soda or fresh horchata ($1) to drink. That’s it.
WHAT This seriously funky taqueria is run by a guy named Joseph, who jokes and flirts and sometimes lays down the law with the steady stream of customers—the law mostly being that you can’t take the tacos to go. Some have dubbed him the Taco Nazi, but he’s doing it for a good reason—if you don’t eat these little bits of heaven right away, they turn into a soggy mess.
