Rusty Taco

Great Tacos. Need I say more. I will. I like the #1 (Ive had them all) if you want flour instead of a corn tortilla you have to ask. Also a friendly staff, look for DJ.

    Glad you liked them.

    I've tried a couple times and didn't think anything was special. Certainly wouldn't drive past any of the usual Mexican taqueria suspects around town for them. But it fills a niche in that area.

      I grew up with DJ on the Westside of St Paul. I Have been there three times and have to agree they have nothing on Pineda or Los Ocampos but do fill a nice void in the area. The Habanero Salsa is addictive, tasty and scorchingly hot.

        Agree with MSPD and Fudist - doesn't hold a candle to any of the better taquerias in town, but it fits the area. Tasty hot sauce though, and cheap tap beer.

          Loved it the first two times and the third time was absolutely terrible.

            I like that they have breakfast burritos.

                I did not like it at all.

                  I went for the first time Saturday and was happy with what I got for $2.50.

                  I took the advice of my chowhound friends in ordering and that undoubtedly helped. Ordered the brisket.

                  I was on my own for dinner the other night and will be bringing SO in to try it next time we're looking for an inexpensive night out.
