So far, we've mostly reviewed old favorites, and some new places that have blown us away. That being the case, you might thing we love every taco we've ever come across. You'd be wrong about that, brother.
This post will be the first of many in our 'AVOID' series. If we eat a bad taco somewhere, you'll never need to.
Today's subject is Taqueria Arandas #1 on E. 7th. It recently moved from a quite unpleasant concrete building out east of Pleasant Valley to a very weird building a little closer to town on E. 7th. I think it may have been a Golden Fried Chicken at some point.
In any case, AVOID. While Taquerias Arandas #3 and #5, on Burnet Road and S. 1st Street respectively, are two of the best Jalisco Style joints in town, #1 has been a consistent bummer. Cold tacos, stale chips, gross gristly bits in the al pastor and the fajitas, you name it.
We just thought you all should know.
