Rusty Taco

4802 Greenville Ave. Dallas, TX 75206 | East Dallas & Lakewood | 214-613-0508

Location Description:

The two-dollar tacos offered seem traditional enough but this establishment draws the hip and young attracted by the minor, safe spins on tacos. There's a fish taco, either grilled or fried, with red cabbage, cilantro and chipotle crema. There's the rajas (grilled poblano chiles, mushroom, onion and red pepper with queso fresco) as well as the eponymous Rusty (achiote pork with charred pineapple). The brisket is topped with cotija. Of course, breakfast tacos of the usual lot are also available. All this in a former gas station outfitted in industrial/mid-century chic with lines that spill out onto the shaded 30-table patio.
