Taquerias in Fort Worth

I was raised in Fort Worth and visit often, but no longer know it like when I lived there. I will be visiting with friends from Canada during the holidays. Would like to take them to a real taqueria type place. Not a big restaraunt type, but small and neighborhood popular with good food. Any suggestions??( I think there was a small place on McCart, after a jog in the road and a railroad track but I'm not sure I rememeber right.)

  1. Taqueria Melis
    4304 W Vickery Blvd
    Fort Worth, TX 76107

    It's authentic right down to the unpredictably changing prices. They have real Mexican Coca Cola too! Downside is there's no inside. They have a couple of picnic tables outside. I recommend the Tacos al Pastor.

    A fun/funky new taco truck has begun to saddle up behind 7th Haven. They call it Taco Heads. From 7pm-2am Wed - Saturday if I remember correctly. Not authentic mexican style, but delicious!!

    1. Tacos Ernesto is a good one, and its on McCart. Its a couple of blocks north of Seminary. The platters are great. For about $5.50 you get your choice of meat with rice/beans and tortillas. I personally like the barbacoa or the puerco en chile verde, but everything has been good. The sopes and flautas are also great. Unlike most taquerias, they also serve chips and hot sauce.

      If you want to get really adventurous, there are also alot of good places inside La Gran Plaza, the mall on Seminary and I-35. You can get the standard taqueria stuff, but also some Central American stuff like papusas and empanadas. There are also quite a few snack stands/fruiterias scattered about the mall that have some good stuff. And just in case you are looking for an airbrushed t-shirt or a new grill for your teef, they've got you covered there too.

        Hey, thanks Jugg. That was it. Tacos Ernesto right after the railroad tracks on McCart. I really enjoyed it. We also went to Paco and John's downtown on 8th and had the street tacos. I love Texas.
