A good jumping-off point is Los Tacos Del George, where the tacos have been known to stop traffic, literally.
The tiny food trailer staked out a spot at 1140 W. Prince Road about three months ago and has been slowly gaining in popularity ever since. It’s tucked in among a few trees in the parking lot next to the Naughton’s heating and cooling store. Look for the tiny wood sign with the red and yellow balloons taped to it.
Los Tacos Del George opens in late morning and closes around 6 p.m. The locals are crazy about the Sonoran hot dogs — quite an honor, considering the abundance of hot dog vendors in the area — but we suggest the birria tacos. For $5, you get five of them and a can of soda. The meat is cooked down to a melt-in-your-mouth tenderness before George tucks it between two tortillas and serves it with a huge grin. You get your own can of soda from the cooler.
Quesadillas, cabeza tacos, pumpkin empanadas and a few other items are also available. Everything’s less than $5, and the small condiment bar has all the required accoutrements. If you don’t feel like dining under the small tent set back a bit from Prince Road, you can call your order in and pick it up.
