Can’t tell you how psyched I was to see Oaxaca Taqueria today. Got 2 pork tacos for $10. Absolutely terrible. What is with the gyro style tacos? All fat, no meat. $10 for 2 tacos. Low overhead should mean they should be at least as good as the ones in their stores and definitely not more expensive. In the brick and mortar you get $4 tacos that are much better. They don’t even resemble the tacos I just threw away. The guy in line before me came back and threw them in the garbage as well. Not to mention gyro style in this kind of wind and in a parking lot means coated in dirt and dust.
