Taquitos Jalisco

This easygoing, neighborhood eatery tucked into a Mesa strip mall features familiar Mexican street foods and meals served up counter style and all for under 10 bucks. Of the proteins that can be packed into or atop tostadas, sopes, quesadillas and the like, there are three to note: Juicy, slow-simmered lengua (tongue), succulent pork, and tender pieces of chicken with crispy skin (in that order). For heartier meals, try the goat meat stew, birria; the rustic bistec ranchero; or the spicy (very spicy) and sweet camarones a la diabla alongside rice and refried beans or piled into warm and flavorful flour tortillas dotted with char. Read our review.
Not needing any help with the heat is the aptly named Shrimp in a Very Hot Sauce, or camarones a la diabla.
