Three-Way Taqueria Showdown: El Guerrerense, Don Beto and Yaqui

There are (at least) three taquerias on McDowell between 24th and 36th streets, all satisfying a near-constant flow of customers. Taqueria El Guerrerense, Taqueria Don Beto and Taqueria Yaqui are no-frills hole-in-the-wall spots sending their best displays of tacos to hungry customers, each with a varying selection of meats.

We wanted to know which one is the best taqueria on McDowell, so we tried all three in the ultimate taqueria showdown.
