Best Carnitas in DFW

I live in Dallas and I've been craving for the real Carnitas taco experience.
All I've found are the ones they sell at Fiesta or El Rancho and they are ok, but I bet there's some better carnitas out there.
Please help!

  1. I like the Carnitas tacos at El Tizoncito. Three locations in Dallas.
    Also good at El Come Tacos.

        I can't remember which but either Meso Maya or Mr. Mesero had really really good carnitas. The other of the two had pretty unimpressive carnitas, but other dishes were quite good... so if your order something in addition you'll have a good meal regardless.

        Also, you could check out CBD Provisions which serves "pig head carnitas" - basically a split pigs head with crispy skin, served with tortillas and salsa. I haven't had it yet, but I've heard multiple favorable comments regarding it. Knife serves something similar.
