The food is served in a line-style fashion, where you walk up, place your order and shuffle down the line specifying what toppings you want on your food. Not only does Taqueria serve tacos, but they also serve tostadas, quesadillas, salads, and an array of delicious sides. The menu is expansive and reasonably priced.
I sampled two tacos: one steak and one carnitas (pork). The soft corn taco shells were steamed on the grill using a piece of cloth to cover them and maintain the steam. I added cheese, lettuce, pico de gallo and a spicy green sauce to complete my meal. The meat was incredibly flavorful and perfectly cooked, though I did prefer the steak over the carnitas. The toppings I added enhanced the flavors and tied the food together. I did have to go back and ask for a bit more sauce, which I was charged $.50 for. Next time I’ll just ask for extra in the line. The tacos, although they appear small in size were incredibly filling! Two was more than enough for a small lunch, and left me full until dinner time. At a price of $7 for the entire meal, who could ask for more than that?
Liz wasn't super hungry, but decided to order two tacos anyways. Typical. She got the chicken and the egg taco. No one is ever the best judge when they are not hungry, but she really enjoyed her meal. Neither of us had ever seen scrambled eggs in a taco before, but mixed with chiles and guacamole, who wouldn't like it? Delicious. The chicken tacos were standard, but the owner (seen below) gave Liz a heaping portion. At a $3 price point, we were both really satisfied.
Overall, we loved Taqueria Nacional and are excited to have an affordable fast dining option on the
