Sometimes when I go to a Mexican restaurant, or on an architecture walk, people say to me, "You're going to that neighborhood? Really?" So far I haven't been to any neighborhoods in the are that were really scary.
Taqueria Durango is in one of those neighborhoods that people think might be a problem. But there's a place called "Bargain Books" right next door, so it must be fine!
Anyway, they have yummy Mexican food there, and that's all that matters. There are three kinds of salsa in unlabled bottles on the table. One is green and hot, one is watery and red and vinegary, and one is red and really hot. All are pretty good. The guac is very good.
|Taco, sope, guac.|
Someone told me to get the sopes, so I got a sope and a taco. I don't normally get sopes, so maybe I'm not the best judge, but I wasn't crazy about my sope. The al pastor on the sope was excellent, though Nathan thought the al pastor in his burrito was a bit too fatty. Nathan enjoyed his burrito. Helen enjoyed the rice.
It's no El Bronco, but it has potential. I'll be back.
