Rusty Taco

$2 tacos, $5 margaritas, and $3 queso. It’s good math and even better tacos on handmade tortillas. The “Rusty Taco” is achiote pork with charred pineapple, but it’s the fish taco that’s their specialty. The shop is located in an renovated gas station and has a good patio for sunny days.

Urban Taco

5331 E. Mockingbird Lane #125
Dallas, TX 75206

Their taco plates are the best. Pick any 3 tacos and 2 sides of your choice. There are so many taco options, including the house-favorite barbacoa braised in Dos XX Amber. You can’t go wrong with any of their tacos, but you’d be mistaken to not pick the roasted corn con lime crema as one of your sides.
