The tacos were delicious. We got the Picadillo, Pastor, and Barbacoa. All tacos come with toppings - my favorite being cilantro. They also give you salsa, which is fantastic. The tacos were on the small side but they're under $2 a taco so it's not too bad when you think about it like that. While they only take cash, there... More

Whenever we visit Dallas, we always come to Fuel City. They have the best burritos! They are huge and only $5. The meat is always good. The elotes (Mexican street corn) in a cup is yummy too! You definitely should get it when you go.

My cousin was raving about this place and was dying to get back and pick up some food. Of course, I was like at a gas station come on really. I'm so glad that we stopped. The beef quesadilla was too good. Meat was so tender and had so much flavor. The corn that you could purchase on the outside... More

Since moving to DFW a few years ago, I've heard so much about this place and their taco stand. I finally stopped by and must say it's worth the try. I ordered beef and chicken tacos which were $1.59 each. They are no frills, just served with seasoned delicious meat on either flour or corn soft shell. There will be... More

I'd passed this place for 11 years, but never stopped. Friends had told me that the tacos are some of the best in the city. I finally stopped and ordered 11 tacos to bring home to the family. Why 11? They only take cash, and that was the number of tacos I could get for $20. I ordered 3 picadillo,... More

My husband thought it would be fun to stop by to try these tacos since they are considered the best. They were good, don't get me wrong and my husband liked them too but I've had better in a local grocery store.

Had to convince my daughter that this was a must-do for tacos. After her first bite she was tweeting about how great a spot it was
