Located inside an old gas station, with the simplest sign imaginable, proclaiming "Tacos El Gordo" in red block letters, this restaurant is nothing to look at. It is the sort of place you might drive by every day and never feel the need to go inside. That would be a mistake. Once inside you'll find a small Latino food market and a counter where you can order from a simple menu. Tacos, quesadillas and burritos are available, with a number of different meats. If you aren't sure about what some of the meats are ("tripita", "lengua"?), try the carne asada, which is a tasty grilled steak. And if you've never tried horchata, then this would be the time. The sweet milky drink is homemade here, and tastes like the best rice pudding ever.
