I have a friend who lives in a newly-constructed large, studio in the hood. For two years, I was afraid to eat at this place, because there is a donkey on the sign. This side of East Downtown has not converted yet, and that's a good thing because of this free-standing, shabby Taco landmark.
Early every morning, there is a line out the door...mostly of a variety of men. I always wondered, ""Don't these men have wives or girlfriends making them breakfast?"" After eating the variety of tacos wrapped in foil here, I wouldn't be surprised if the cooks have received proposals.
One morning, I ordered half a dozen for my friend and I to sample. The chorizo with slighltly crisped potato was my favorite. The barbacoa one could convert a vegan and required extra napkins. Don't drive while eating these, you might be incredibly distracted by your tongue or spill something on your suit.
Tip: The cheese is extra.

I tried this place for the first time today. The tortillas were fresh, and the eggs were fluffy. I had a nice meal at a pretty good price. The clients and location make me fear for my life, which is a drawback. But if you can overlook that, you're in for a treat.

If you are looking for homemade mexican food this is the closest you will get. Fresh homemade flour tortillas made in front of you. I highly recommend the breakfast tacos. Very reasonably priced. Parking is limited and the line is usually long, but it goes by fast. The service is great as well.
