Los Tarascos is a popular, open-air taco restaurant. There are several in Acapulco: Costa Azul, La Condesa, on the Costera between Gran Plaza and Galerías Diana, on Cuahutemoc near Sears, in Acapulco Diamante and more. The specialty is tacos – tacos of all kinds, including beef, pork, lamb, nopal and others. They are served with onions, lemons, salsa, and hand-made tortillas. Los Tarascos is a great place to go late at night, as they are open late and stay busy. The menu is extensive, and inexpensive. Be sure to try the crunchy grilled cheese called "chicharrón de queso." Tacos "Al Pastor" are pork, while "Gringas" are mixed beef and pork. An "alambre" is a barbecued collection of meat (your choice) and vegetables, cooked on a spit or wire (hence the name) and served hot on a platter. The sauces come in all gradations of mild to very hot. It's best to taste them first before deciding to use very much. Los Tarascos maintains high standards for its restaurants: they are clean, and the food is well prepared and very tasty. Servings are generous. Many locals and tourists will tell you that it is hard to eat much better than this on a budget. Taquerías are meant to be simple restaurants with hearty food, cold beer and attentive service. Los Tarascos is a prime example of the genre.
