Many argue that Veracruz All-Natural makes the best tacos in town. They don’t get our top spot, but we will say that they make what is hands-down the greatest migas taco we’ve ever tasted. Their non-taco stuff is great too (particularly the quesadillas). Do expect ridiculously long lines unless you catch one of their trailers in a rare slow moment, which is usually during weekdays.
