Baja Tacos — a single-room shack fronted by canary-yellow umbrellas in the heart of the concrete Cerrillos Road wilderness. As you would hope, tacos are where it’s at here; other things are heavier and less interesting.
Fast food like this might not be healthy, but as a friend said, “It’s cheap, it’s good, it’s fast, it’s hot, and it’s clean. If you want tacos — American-style tacos — why wouldn’t you eat here?” Recommended: breakfast burrito, bacon roll (only if you take your Lipitor first), chicken tacos, and fish tacos.
