The Best Rolled Tacos in El Paso
If you had asked me this question a few months ago, I would have quickly answered "Chico's" or "El Cometa." A recent trip to Ray's Gasoline Dive Bar made me reconsider my thoughts on the best-rolled tacos in El Paso. Ray's has some of the best-rolled tacos I have ever tried. Even better than (dare I say it) Chicos!
Ray's cover their rolled tacos with sour cream, some cabbage and two kinds of cheese. All smothered in a spicy tomato bases sauce. Check out the photo. Ray's only serves them on Mondays, for only 75 cents each.
This got me thinking. What other hidden gems for rolled tacos are there in El Paso. This is what I found out.
El Cometa (4131 N. Mesa & 9529 Viscount): If you like your rolled tacos styled after the ones in Juarez, Mexico, this is the place for you. The tacos are super long and covered in guacamole, sour cream, and queso fresco. Delicious.
Cincinnati Street Bar & Grill (1700 N. Zaragosa): I haven't tried them put many will tell you they are delicious. Someday even better than Chico's.
The District Pub and Kitchen (601 N. Piedras): Another bar that has decided to put their rolled tacos into the ring. These look and taste a lot like Chico's.
Gabriel's Restaurant (1270 Giles). These are some of my favorites. I recommend them. Beef rolled tacos covered in a hot, thick tomato sauce that melts the cheese and your heart.
Chicos (you know the locations): The King of Rolled Tacos. If you haven't tried them then I don't know what to tell you.
