Pacos Tacos, Metairie, LA Report #299

This place sells the authentic, Mexican street type tacos.  Until I was in my 40’s, the only type of tacos I had tried were the Taco Bell type tacos, with the crunchy, corn shell.  Then after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, numerous taco trucks showed up in New Orleans, and my eyes were opened!  I loved them.

Seeing the sign saying they made everything fresh to order made me happy.  Also, the topping station.  Quite a variety!  Due to the current pandemic, everything was portioned and sealed up in little plastic cups and baggies.  I think it’s impossible to read the tags on the station in my picture, so here’s a list of them.

Salsa wise, they had Red Arbol, Green Tomatillo, Roasted Habanero, Guacasalsa, Molcajete and Red Tomatillo, in black plastic condiment containers.  In little plastic baggies they had Chunky Pineapple/Habanero, Pickled Peppers, chopped cucumbers, sliced limes, Pico de Gallo and chopped radishes.

They also sell Maestro Dobel Tequilla.  The bottles on the display above are empty.  They fill them when you buy one.  $60 a bottle.

We decided to try each one of the meats and the shrimp tacos, on corn tortillas.


The food!


The shrimp in the shrimp tacos were fried with a puffy batter.  Something like Tempura.  Very good!  So was the guacamole served on them.

All the meat tacos were also good.  The grilled onions served with each dish were a great topping.

Oh! And speaking of toppings, surprisingly the Guacasalsa was the spiciest one I tried!  And yes, I did try the habanero.

Nice little place.  We enjoyed it!
