This modest place, a half hidden hole in the wall on the bypass, is a rare gem. While I'm an All American Local, my impression is that of authenticity and deliciousness.
This is not your typical Americanized Mexican place. The menu is brief - with a few specials every now and then.
Tortillas are fresh and have some tooth to them. Tacos are not to be missed - try the BBQ lamb. Other-worldly.
My gal Sally is a huge fan - she insisted that I get a big to go order of tacos to take back to Jennette's Pier. We'd been fishing there more or less around the clock for several days, sleeping off and on in our Rambler wagon in the parking lot. The point is that the tacos taste even better with a little age on em. Refrigeration? Naw , but we had our cooler and between the bait and beer, the bag-o-tacos rested comfortably. Until Sally awakened one morning and wiped em out.
Hurt feelings and recriminations ensued. The management invited us to vacate the premises and we headed north, back to the Avalon where the planks are worn and the bite is pretty good.
But we've made up several times since then. Head on over to the OBX Taqueria. Grab a bag full and tell em Esso and Sally send their regards.
