From pancakes to burgers, we always say yes when asked if we want anything topped with “the works.” If you also have this automatic-reply setting turned on, you should override it when you go to Taqueria Emilio. The tacos are big on their own, and they become fork-and-knife dishes when topped with everything from cucumbers and radishes to sour cream and cheese. Most importantly, all the toppings mask the flavor of the meat, and the juicy al pastor and tender lengua are the reason you should come to this all-day counter-service spot in the first place.
