You should head north to Noblesville and visit El Palenque. They’ve got killer tacos and Mexican food. They continuously get high ratings and they’re just a small hole in the wall place. Haven’t had a bad meal there. You might also try the Tamale Place over on Rockville Rd. Best tamales in the region and an ever changing menu.
I’ve only been to The Tamale Place once but if the rest of the menu is as good as the green and red chile tamales I had that day I can see why it’s so popular.
If my summer trip takes me to the east side of Indy this year I’ll keep El Palenque in mind.
