Time of Visit: Lunch…a lot
Order: 4 Pastor tacos, 2 Ground Beef tacos, and a Tres Leches
Pros: Amazing tacos, best Tres Leches ever, quick take out service
Cons: The line to order can get long around lunch (this could also be a Pro)
Thoughts: I can't count the number of times I've eaten here so I finally decided to write a review. There are really just two things you need to know about Mr. Taco. First; they have they best street style tacos in Jacksonville. Second, they have the best Tres Leches I have ever eaten. If you like either of these things go visit them!
Now for some details, when I say street tacos what I mean is a simple taco with meat, a little lettuce, cream cheese, sour cream, and tomatoes. You aren't getting some crazy sauce, or mango chutney, or any other topping that you would typically see on an "upscale" taco; and its amazing. The meat is the key to this being such a great taco, the pastor and ground beef are especially tasty and they seem to hit the seasoning on both of them perfectly. While the tacos are just a bit on the small side you can get 3 tacos for just under $6 and that is more than enough to fill you up. They also have a small salsa bar that you can dump all over the top of your tacos (or put in to-go cups if you don't want to get messy).
The Tres Leches here is also the best Tres Leches I have ever eaten. It might actually be perfect; the cake is not mushy and soaked with excessive amounts of milk like most other Tres Leches I've eaten, its also not dry like those that are not soaked in milk. The balance of sweetness is just right as well, not too sweet but still tastes like a desert.
I really can't recommend this place enough for anyone who wants a few good delicious tacos, and maybe some Tres Leches to finish it off.
