There is more than one Mexican restaurant in town named Los Tacos, but this one (on East Charleston near Eastern Ave.) is the real enchilada. The menu is short — basically just a list of the meats they lay into the double-layered, soft corn tortillas, a few seafood cocktails (at $7.50 the mixed cocteles de mariscos of oysters, octopus and shrimp is a steal) and a few other items. You order at the register, take a number, and wait for it to be called out in Spanish and (sometimes) English. Since the only double digit number ELV knows in Spanish is ocho cinco, we can usually be spotted standing in the middle of the room with a stupid expression on our face as we wait to have pity taken upon us by the genial staff. One of these days, when our number is 85, maybe we won’t feel like such a gringo. Until that happens, we’ll have to content ourselves with eating the best tacos in town….bar none.
