Taco Internet: The Bus, Guisados and Failing

TacoTicker

After months of positive experiences at taquerias in Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin and San Antonio, I came across a stinker of a joint. Maybe it’s because I’ve been concentrating on an article about a little considered taco (not the breakfast kind) and have stuck to the familiar or sure things. Maybe it’s because there’s so much great stuff out there. Whatever the reason, El Ranchito #3 remains a dud.

Beyond DFW, there is the wonderful (a new Taco Bus!) and the unfortunate (Huffington Post fails at taco fails!). Oh, and Johnathan Gold goes wishy-washy in his review of Petty Cash Taqueria. Without further ado, this week’s Taco Internet roundup:
