After our usual TripAdvisor search in a new town we settled on El Herradero. Chips came with bean and green sauces. The bean not great and the green too hot for us. We asked if they had red salsa.

Best Mexican in town. Very authentic food. Their street tacos are my favorite. Although there isn't anything that I've ordered here that I haven't liked. The restaurant and the food truck are both great.

Google maps recommended this place to eat and so glad we decided to give it a try. The ladies that worked there were super nice. The food was super delicious, made me wish we lived here so we could eat there again. Definitely worth eating there! Great price and great food :)
