Smiley's Update-Asheville/Fletcher

There were some recent posts about the food at Smiley's Flea Market and I wanted to give an update since I was there yesterday. Lots of great mini taqerias at the market, my friends and I went to Don Tacos. We were there around 2:00 pm on a Sunday so they were out of several items (carnitas, tortas, etc.). We had all eaten, but wanted to try a taco since we had heard they were so good. My friend and I each had a steak taco and my husband had the beef cheek taco. All were delicious. Handmade tortilla's, perfectly cooked and seasoned beef, and minimally dressed (little bit of onion and cilantro with a lime wedge on the side). I'd recommend this place, but we're talking about going back to try all of the taco stands. Don Tacos had indoor and outdoor seating.

The highlight of the flea market, though, were the freshly made churros. This stand is near the rear of the buildings portion of the market. They extrude the dough, fry it before your eyes and offer several different fillings. Hot, delicious, and I'd recommend it to EVERYONE.

        I didn't see any hot chocolate at the churros stand, but I was a little preoccupied!

      2. Any updates on the food stands at Smiler's?
