Fuel City Tacos
Review by: Michael Stern
Fuel City Tacos has tacos, 24/7
Between 5am and 10am, they are available filled with eggs along with bacon, chorizo, or potatoes. Non-breakfast varieties include picadillo (spicy ground beef with diced potatoes), beef or chicken fajita (sautéed with onions), barbacoa (roast beef), and pastor (pork). Standard garnishes, unless refused, include chopped raw onions, cilantro, hot sauce, and a wedge of lime.
Roadfood devotees know that I have a soft spot for restaurants in gas stations, but please do not think I recommend this place just because it is a takeout window in a building behind the pumps. It also boasts of being Texas’s best car wash and has an absolutely stunning amount of beer by the can, bottle, and case for sale inside. There are real longhorn cattle grazing in back and you dine at a picnic table with the Dallas skyline looming overhead. Oh, and also there is a cart in front selling cups of warm corn (“elote” in Mexican) mixed with cheese, sour cream, and hot sauce — a fabulous starchy side dish for a quartet of tacos. Talk about ambiance!
As noted above, there are no dining facilities at Fuel City Tacos other than a few picnic tables. There is plenty of space in the parking lot, where many customers dine in their cars and trucks; many more get bags full of tacos to take elsewhere.
