All Taco on Central ... Great Lunch

All Taco on Central in Columbia Heights

While shopping at Annona Gourmet in St. Anthony Village, Jean the owner asked "Where are you going for lunch?"  John's standard response is "Somewhere with good tacos."  Jean recommended the All Taco truck on Central in Columbia Heights in the AutoZone parking lot.  

The little yellow All Taco truck lunch was great.

Our Lunch at All Taco

Our lunch was available in less than five minutes and reasonably priced at $9 for the burrito and $2.50 each for the tacos.

Carnitas Burrito

The carnitas burrito was the highlight.  Often large burritos end up with ingredients localized within the tortilla.  The carnitas, corn, lettuce, beans and sour cream were well proportioned throughout the flavorful tortilla.  Two salsas accompanied the burrito along with one roasted pepper that was delicious, combing wonderful roasted pepper flavor with a memorable level of heat.  We considered the burrito a value at $9, and even when shared was filling.

 Two Tacos:  Marinated Pork & Chicken

The marinated pork taco and the chicken taco were well constructed and flavorful, with the pork taco being our favorite.  The tacos were accompanied with radishes, lime and a rich and flavorful red salsa.   The roasted pepper made the chicken taco come alive.

 If you are in the neighborhood do give All Taco a try...they also have quesadillas and bowls.
