Brisket Tacos: perhaps one of the few foods Dallas can take credit for inventing, at least in its current form. I ate so, so many versions of these heavy little gut bombs on my quest to find Dallas' best and I'm certain. These are it.
I illuminated in a blog post a while ago, that while very close to Mia's, Manny's brisket tacos come out on top. The pablanos and onions are full of life and crunch rather then drenched in oil and soft. They give you a huge bowl of gravy for dipping and the décor inside the restaurant is a little less noisy. Manny's for the brisket taco win. It's a no brainier.
