El Tizoncito Taqueria

The trompo, a vertical roasting spit common in Mexico, serves up the popular Alambres Al Pastor—a quartet of tacos served with the traditional toppings in corn tortillas. Although there are more than tacos at Leo Spencer’s El Tizoncito, don’t expect chips and salsas. Instead, find frijoles charros—black bean soup seasoned with epazote herb. Other crowd favorites include tortas and quesadillas. You can't go wrong with any of the drink options, like the $5 tamarind margarita, agua fresca or horchata in the warm glow of the food and earthy color scheme.
