Bite Your Tongue: The Taco Shop's Popularity Owed to Fresh Offerings

The Taco Shop on University Avenue has a number of fresh, authentic options, like the pork tacos.

The Taco Shop, located on University Avenue, behind Oby’s and between AutoZone and Sugar Magnolia, is a quant hideout rife with fresh deliciousness. Its authentic Mexican cuisine, trinkets, and pleasing Mexican memorabilia on the walls makes it a comforting spot.
aRDM1Jy3Hvns05Opened four years ago by owner Pedro Leyva, the Taco Shop’s dishes are made fresh and pair well with a full complement of cocktails, beer, and other beverages. You’ll go home feeling nothing but full and satisfied. Each plate has big portions and clean, crisp flavors.
They have daily specials and a fairly extensive menu, mostly in Spanish. They offer about 13 different kinds of meat in their tacos, burritos, and quesadillas including, if you’re feeling wild, tongue and head, as well as that tasty Mexican sausage chorizo.
Tacos are available with hard or soft shells and with black beans and rice or refried. Each comes with cilantro and onion, and if you buy four you can get one free. I highly recommend their burrito with a nice sopa or soup, preferably tortilla.
They even have fried fish that you can stuff into one of the three items, and refrescos like Coca-Cola in the bottle.
