The owners of Taco-Mex are from Monterrey, Mexico or Nuevo Leon at least, which may explain why I love their take on tacos as dearly as I do. All of their meat is well seasoned, the tortillas nice and tender. Their salsa verde (green sauce) may just be the best I have had, other than that made by anyone in my friend Patricia's family. The spice is just right and doesn't drown out the other flavors in the salsa, nor does it over power your palate and the meat in the tacos.

The migas were wonderful, a mix of tortillas, jalapeños, cheese and eggs also called chilaquiles in various regions of Mexico (there is that regional food naming again). These are good, the eggs not too wet or too dry and the jalapeños are a nice touch. And the chips are added in right at the end so that they stay just a touch crunchy.
So, how are the prices at Taco-Mex? All breakfast tacos are $1.75 and all lunch tacos $2. You can have a tasty lunch for about 5 bucks, so prices are fantastic to answer the question. All things said, if you want an authentic Mexican taco this is the place to go get it.
