 Trompo 839 Singleton Blvd #150    Dallas, TX 75112

Nestled between a barbeque restaurant and a tire shop, Trompo is a casual place with some of the best authentic street tacos in Dallas. While the selection at Trompo is lighter during the day, its menu is well-rounded and robust. Patrons have the option of three taco fillings – pork, bistek, and roasted poblano pepper and paneer for vegetarians. Trompo keeps its tacos simple, adding only cilantro and white onion. The pork at Trompo is fiery red, redder than what you might find in most southern Mexican street tacos. This is because its pork is coated in several kinds of paprika before being cooked, according to the Dallas Observer. Tacos can be purchased at $2 each.
