Taqueria Sotelo offers one the best deals in town: four tacos for $6. But their tortas are good enough to make you completely forget about that deal, too. The best thing about this sandwich, besides the tender carnitas and all the smashed avocado, is the fact that all three salsas included (a mild green, spicy red, and even spicier habanero) are so good that they’ll make you wish you could buy the stuff by the bucket.
