Trompo is their name, and tacos de trompo are their game. The trompo, a vertical spit much like that used for shawarma in the Middle East and gyros in Greece, supports layers of pork rubbed red with spices. When you order, meat is shaved off straight into a taco or a gringa, which adds a velvety pillow of molten cheese. Luis Olvera’s former backyard sensation is now a West Dallas mainstay, and, since it’s halfway between Taquero and Tacos Mariachi, it’s part of one of the city’s best taco crawl itineraries.

Fun fact: Order at the window and take your food to go; it’s perfectly respectable to eat your gringas in your parked car outside, with the engine running. Not that we would know anything about this.
