First up was the machaca. The shredded beef with tomatoes, onion, and egg smothered with their own chile con queso has been an El Paso favorite for about as long as the restaurant has been open.

Once I got a bite of the Machaca, it was easy to see what everyone is so excited about in El Paso. The flavor is amazing.

McAuliffe was equally enamored with the Tacos Antonia, declaring them some of the best tacos in Texas.
