Taco’s Jalisco at Northstar

Posted By: The Ski Channel on December 2, 2009 12:30 pm


The secret is getting out, but Taco’s Jalisco still remains a little known gem among Truckee eateries. Located in the back corner of the same parking lot as the 7-11 off Donner Pass Road, Taco’s Jalisco offers a large array of authentic Mexican food. The staff speaks mostly Spanish and the clientele runs toward locals and resort employees of all nationalities. The style is informal to the max: line up at the counter to order and then find your own seat at one of the dining bars in the front room or a booth in the back and wait for your food to be delivered. While the prices are higher than those found in large cities, this hole in the wall joint is still a very affordable option for dinner in Truckee. Favorite dishes include: the little street tacos. However, if you are starved after a long day on the mountain you should try the Armadillo, a concoction of shrimp, beef, pork, and cacti.
