The Tacos El Bronco Truck is usually parked at the corner of 37th and 5th, and they make some of the best tacos in the city. Sure, these tacos are a little small - but they’re only $2 each, and the undersized tortilla is part of what sets them apart. (It creates the perfect ratio of filling-to-tortilla.) Try the cabeza if you want some rich chunks of veal head, or just go with the carnitas. There’s no wrong answer here. All roads lead to happiness.
