La Salsa Verde

Few taquerias are as perfectly suited to a public health crisis as La Salsa Verde, because several of its locations are so small you’d have to eat your tacos in your car anyway. 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.
