If you look in the window of Taqueria Coatzingo, you can see flames coming off the grill, and when you walk inside, the dining room might even be a little smoky. Take this as a very good sign. The kitchen here is big and constantly busy, and it produces some very good tacos (that come with a lot of meat). If you want something else, there’s a long menu with a lot of other options like huaraches, enchiladas, and bigger dishes like pork chops and steaks. There are also a lot of tables in the big back dining room, where you can simultaneously listen to music and soccer announcers on TV.
