      Cabo Wabo, on the strip in Vegas. These were pretty damn good.

          They do look great but maybe the meat was a little overcooked?
           
          How were the salsas?  My latest favorite is Salsa Negra. Nice and smokey with a lot of flavor.

            You scared me with the past tense in the title, but curiosity got the better of me.  How about - "picture of some tacos before I ate them" ???
             
            Good looking plate.

              The meat was OK, maybe a little dry but I didn't notice really, the flavor was nice and pleasant, not overspiced. We didn't have a bad meal in Vegas, but this was the only one we had outside of a casino. There was some salsa with the chips but I didn't know which it was; I drippled it on the tacos because, well, that's the kind of guy I am. I put stuff on things.

                    I used to hate cilantro, it tasted like soap to me. But I came around, now I like it. That doesn't usually happen, I still marvel that it did.

                        Just curious but what did this cost?  Just trying to judge how inflated prices are in vegas.  I've not been there in years.

                              Honestly, I don't remember. I wasn't shocked, but I don't remember how much.

                                Those tacos look damn good! And that's saying something for someone from Dallas, Texas.

                                  In Dallas at the (real) Mexican taquerias, loaded tacos run about $1.10-$1.25 each.

                                    those look delicious! I was worried this picture might be a little to graphic... mmm I love all of the fresh veggies, and I always prefer a corn tortilla!

                                            Cabo Wabo, on the strip in Vegas. These were pretty damn good.

                                            I've eaten at the original Cabo Wabo in San Lucas maybe two dozen times.  I know everyone writes it off as some rockers (Sammy Haggar) place and low brow, but no.  It's authentic and fresh fresh fresh.  I've been doing shoestring and upscale Mexico for nearly 30 years now, and Cabo Wabo throws a lot of eye candy flash at you, but the food is very real.  It's street vendor with safety.

                                                wow that looks good!! looks kind of clean. not all greasy and all like the "good but not good for you" tacos (namely LA).

                                                    hey. don't knock the grease!
                                                    I have to go outside Ashlandia to find good tacos. The healthy brigade has taken over.
