<font face="Franklin Gothic Medium"><div>One of my favorite comfort foods are tacos. Not your Taco Bell ground beef sort of tacos, but the authentic kind with chopped meat, cilantro, salsa and onions. I make them at home from time to time but occasionally like to order them when I go to Mexican restaurants.
I am a huge fan of Food Network`s "Diners Drive Ins and Dives" which is hosted by Guy Fieri. Guy is from Santa Rosa so he frequently shows places he likes to eat at in Santa Rose one of them being La Texanita.
La Texanita is a small restaurant in Santa Rosa, California, that serves delicious authentic Mexican food. They have every Mexican comfort food you can think of from Chilaquiles, to tacos to Pozole. Ever since I say DDD`s episode on this place I knew I had to add this to my list of places to try.
My husband and I decided to spend the weekend in Santa Rosa and Bodega Bay to go to the County Fair as well as visit a few beaches along the Sonoma coast but the first thing we did was grab some lunch at La Texanita. I ended up ordering two tacos with homemade tortillas (omg yum) and one sope (not shown). After one bite I was blown away.....these were probably the best tacos I had ever eaten...hands down. I think what makes them different from other places or even to the ones I make at home is the homemade tortillas. They are soft and absolutely delicious. I also love that they give you jalapenos, radishes and green onions with your order....makes me feel like I am eating my own homemade tacos. Their tacos are really cheap. Their regular tacos are only $1.25 and their homemade tortilla tacos are only $2.00. The sope I ordered was only $3.50 and my husband ordered pozole which was $8.00 for a humongous bowl + tostadas. Everything on their menu is under $16.
The place was super packed! I am not sure if it`s because of all the new business their episode on DDD brought them or if it has always been like that. All I know is that their food is amazing as well as their customer service!
We loved this place so much we went back the next day before we headed home!
