El Taco Rustico

Quickly becoming one of Tucson’s favorite Mexican food joints, El Taco Rustico got its start at the Tohono O’odham Swap Meet. But this cuisine honors the flavors and traditions of Coahuila in northeast Mexico, where owner Juan Almanza learned to cook. Juan uses a slow process, grilling over low heat charcoal to let the meat roast slowly, keeping all its flavor and juice intact.
