Considered the first upscale Mexico City-style taquería, this is the original location of the local chain. Owners Markus Pineyro and John E. Tuma opened it in 2007. Since then, they have branched all over Dallas. Yet there's nothing like the first Urban Taco. Its design is simply appointed in a style that melds traditional Mexican décor with modern flare -- native folk art shares space with imported Mexican furniture, sleek lines and color everywhere. Because of this, menu items -- everything from carnitas D.F. taco and quesadilla de queso Oaxaca to a chicken tinga torta -- are more expensive than the average taco shop's fare. What you won't find here is anything associated with Tex-Mex (i.e., no orange-dyed cheese).
