La Salsa Verde

La Salsa Verde is a locally owned authentic taco spot with six locations around North Texas, most of which are pretty small spaces, but that's no worry. The Northwest Highway location has a big dining room, but the Coit Road and Plano locations are especially close quarters. Set your takeout container on the passenger seat, or on the trunk, and enjoy extraordinary tacos that start at $1.29, or $6 squash blossom quesadillas and a host of equally affordable tortas.

Top pick: Tacos de cabeza are the specialty here. Order either cachete — cheek meat — or lengua rebanada — sliced beef tongue — and you’ll receive a bounty of ultra-tender taco filling. Don’t miss out on the restaurant’s intensely spicy escabeche.
