Making Dallas Even Better

Looks Like Taqueria El Fuego in Richardson is Closed

A loyal Disher who loves Taqueria El Fuego reports he read on Chowhound his beloved taco spot was closed. He emailed me and asked me to confirm. I called and the phone is disconnected. Guess I’ll dispatch a scout for a visual.

    Best chincharron I’ve ever had, and by a wide margin. In fact, all there food was pretty great. This is sad.

    It was probably, one of the top 5 taqueria’s in Dallas. And, closer to No. 1 than No. 5

    It can’t be due to lack of biz. Family problem perhaps or maybe a new and better location. I wish them well. I first went there about 10 years ago. wow.

    Say it ainn’t so . . .I am with twinwillow on El Fuego. Excellent food across the board. My favorite tortillas in Dallas. Very sad news.

    They are not just a taqueria. Probably the best mexmex in Dallas.
    Their buffet lunch special is always good and yes, handmade tortillas

    I tried to go Saturday morning for breakfast burritos and was surprised when I pulled on the door and it didn’t open. There was mail piled on the floor. Such a bummer!

    Try the one-year-old DF Goumet Taco in the strip mall near Albertson’s on Arapaho and Hillcrest in Richardson. Stunningly authentic and BYOB steal from usual Dallas Tex-Mex fare. They even do breakfast:) Another Gem that is worth supporting.

    @Craig Hall~ Is that same place as “Mexico City Gourmet Taco”?
