As moist as beef can be, barbacoa is described next to the order window merely as ''steamed roast beef.'' The sign does not mention that the beef is saturated with spice.

Three handsome tacos, from left to right: picadillo, barbacoa, and pastor. I asked for the pastor in corn tortillas (you get a choice), and it was served in a double.

Warm corn kernels, dressed with sour cream, cheese, and hot sauce, make a great companion to tacos. The corn, known as elote, is available in small, medium, and large sizes. This is small, and sells for $1.25.

Ground beef and potatoes are infused with a good green sauce. It's not hot but it supplies a savory twist. Did I mention how crunchy and sweet the chopped onions are?

The amount of beer stocked by Fuel City is astonishing. This long corridor of Coronas and Coronitas cartons leads to the indoor side of the taco order window.

Those in need of a quick, cool one to go with their tacos can avail themselves of this immense ice chest in the center of the store.

When you dine at a picnic table to the side of Fuel City, appropriate Lone Star ambience is supplied by a small herd of grazing longhorn cattle.

I knew I was going to like this place as soon as I pulled into the parking lot. At the right is a lane that leads to what the management boasts is Texas's best car wash.

Place an order, pay, and wait for your name to be called. The wait time is a good opportunity to stroll over and secure a cup of warm corn.

Covered seating at the side of the building. Fuel City Tacos is on the outskirts of Dallas with a good view of the Dallas skyline.
