Los Tapatios is a reincarnation of the old East side truck Las Brasas. The new owners bought it at the beginning of 2012,  and have reintroduced it with an interesting menu that includes regional specialties (pambazo) as well as some protein offering – eyeballs and brains – that we haven’t seen advertized at any of the Columbus trucks before.

They also, of course, carry the standard offerings (tacos, burritos, quesadillas) as well as huraches and gringas. On Wednesdays tacos are $1.

We weren’t able to try the pambazo as they were out of potatoes, or the eyeballs & brains (since it was a Tuesday…) so we went with tacos.

We tried chicken, steak and tripa. All were were thoroughly solid, with a generous amount of meat. The chicken taco had meaty chunks of chicken seasoned with black pepper. The tripa was probably our favorite of the three.

On the first free Friday/Saturday we come upon, we’ll return to Tapatios to try the Andrew Zimmern stuff. Wish us luck!
