Latest Taqueria 3 Amigos news and reviews

JM ate the carnitas burrito.
Nichole ate the two taco plate with one carne asada and one al pastor.
The bill was $23, or $11ish/person, plus tip.
JM and Nichole gave Taqueria 3 Amigos a B (see our grading rubric).

Hard to believe, maybe, but it was "hippie Christmas" when we visited Taqueria 3 Amigos on Williamson Street. Warm biking weather, laid-back vibe, and affordable tasty eats were the impressions we had, after we found the place - in typical A-Z fashion, we went to the wrong address first, and visited the vacant storefront on Henry before pedaling on down to Willy. But we eventually made it!

The opening foray of warm chips with salsa was encouraging. For his meal, JM opted for a carnitas burrito, which was rich and fatty as might be expected. A veritable loaf o' food (beans, rice and sausage all in) lay there on a giant red plate, blanketed in a huge flour tortilla.


Nichole went with the two taco plate, which added rustic refried beans and corn-studded rice. Of the two classic tacos, the carne asada was her preference - loaded with black pepper that gave it zing. The al pastor, in contrast, was mostly salty. Both tacos came loaded with very fresh cilantro and onions.

We'd go back!
