Restaurant review: Breakfast tacos at Carnitas El Barranco

I have to thank Scott Griggs, president of the Fort Worth Avenue Development Group, for suggesting we meet at Carnitas to discuss what’s going on along Fort Worth Avenue. (The answer: A lot, so keep watching Back Talk Oak Cliff and the Advocate CliffDweller for news.)

I only had a couple of breakfast tacos — one with eggs and cheese, and one with sausage and eggs — but that was enough to make me want to come back for more. It’s cheap and good: Breakfast cost me a total of $2 and some change. (Make sure to ask for the green sauce to pour over the insides of your tacos.) The window paint declared that Carnitas opens every morning at 6 a.m., and on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, it stays open 24 hours.

Apparently, the place has a few devoted fans. This review on yelp.com makes the restaurant out to be a gift from God.
