Oh, where do I begin? I lived in the Des Moines metro area for almost 25 years,and this place is the best, by far, taco joint around. My dad worked for the dmpd back in the 70's when the little old lady opened up her taco shop. He said he and other patrolmen would go get 10 tacos for a dollar and they were sure something special. He recalls her rolling out the tortillas and frying then right there on the spot with a smile on her face.
Flash forward decades later, and its still a great place to go. They've since expanded and have multiple locations, but you will all find that fresh-made Mexican taste you crave. The Ankeny location isn't as authentic, but when you go down to the original, it's still just as original. My only qualm is that they are closed on Sundays. Whenever I visit from Denver, I make a point to get some tasty tacos!
