Mike's parking lot tends to attract vendors. I've seen pit bulls for
sale as well as Latin music CDs. I recommend an afternoon visit for
first-timers. Look for the grey building with the chicken painted on
the side. When you walk in, bypass the many botanas, grab a drink, and
then head to the back of the store where you'll see a counter with five
stools, a giant menu hanging from the ceiling, and two terribly sweet
women cooking up made-to-order tacos, tortas, burritos, quesadillas,
alambres, and carne x libre. (The latter is meat without bones.)
There's no cheese dip or sides of rice and beans here, so try a variety
of tacos or do halfsies with a friend on a couple of burritos. The
platters are big enough for two, and the chicken barbacoa is a
Payment Type: Accepts debit cards.
From black beans to chicharrónes to eyeballs, here are 12 tacos you should try.
