It is believed that the origin of the taco started in Mexican silver mines. Mr. Pilcher believes that they came about some time in the 19th century. This hypothesis about the taco comes from the fact that the first type of taco was “taco de minero,” which translates to mean miner’s tacos. Also, have you ever realized that taquitos look similar to a stick of dynamite? Taquito is a Spanish word that translates to small taco. It is believed that the word taco originally referred to pieces of paper that miners would wrap around gunpowder and use in holes that were carved into the face of the rock(casablancamexican.com)

THE TACOS!! The meat was so tasty I would say anything on the menu!
Now everyone claims they have great tacos but everyone can’t stand up to the test.
I’ve eaten tacos from taco trucks, I’ve had them in front of dance clubs on the street, I’ve had them at home and even bought them on a corner from a lady named Tatiyana with a side order of homemade tamales.
There are some core differences in a great taco that I have grown to know. That is the flavor and tenderness in the meat, the salsa and the toppings.
A great taco will not be over saturated with all kinds of toppings but contain delicious flavor bursting meats including some onion, a little lime, a little cilantro and a tasty salsa sitting on top of a corn tortilla.
Every item needs to stand on its own, from the tortilla, to the meat, to the onion and lime.
If all are not in the realm of perfection then the entire taco could be ruined.
I’ve had tacos where the meat was juicy and flavorful but the tortilla was hard and crumbling , or the tortilla and meat were tasty but the salsa was bland or way to spicy.
