Teddy’s Red Tacos is a truck located about 15 minutes south of downtown, sitting right on some (hopefully-not-in-use) railroad tracks. There’s no menu, they only cook beef birria, and before you even say hi to the cashier, they’ll have started making you a deluxe plate, which comes with a quesadilla, molita, tostada, taco, pozole, and chips and salsa for only $10. Teddy’s food is big and gooey and the kind of soul-curing meal you need as you sit and wonder if that train will actually come. Cash only.
