We LOVE tacos — so much so, every #TacoTuesday we choose a ‘TACO OF THE WEEK‘ and pay homage to a different taquería, restaurant or taco truck in the community.
Taco of the Week
Beef Barbacoa Taco, Ta’cul – Really Cool Tacos.
Simmered in a slow-cooker with a spicy tomato sauce until extremely tender, this Mexican shredded beef taco will dissolve in your mouth like cotton candy. Served on a soft, grilled corn tortilla and topped with onions, queso fresco, and flavorful white sauce, no question, this authentic Mexican street taco is supreme.
Don Carlos Taco Shop
For 35 years, Don Carlos Taco Shop has been a family-owned La Jolla, CA landmark.
Opened in 1983 by Costa Rican immigrant Carlos Herrera Sr., Don Carlos has established a loyal following of locals, surfers, tourists and celebrities — including Jimmy Buffet who stopped by after surfing North Pacific Beach.
In 2001, ownership of Don Carlos Taco Shop changed hands to Carlos’s neice Seidy Hill. Since then, Seidy, her children Ryan, Jyle and Cassie and the rest of the Don Carlos family are committed to providing the La Jolla community with amazing food, refreshing drinks, and a friendly atmosphere for the whole family.
