“Really Good Tacos”

Taqueria Tres Reyes
Ranked #1 of 20 Restaurants in Riverdale
Price range: US$6 - US$15
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed October 11, 2015

For $3 each I was expecting the usual single-handed meal experienced at other taquerias. These tacos were overflowing with meat, were difficult to hold with one hand, and each bite caused some chunks of meat to fall out. Besides the pleasant surprise for quantity, quality was very good. The lengua was very tender and needed some sauce (green & red accompanied the tacos). The al pastor was flavorful. The real surprise was the tender, crispy texture of the tripa helped by a few minutes on the flat top grill. If you want Coke, both domestic and Mexican versions are available.

It can be busy during lunch. Ordering is faster if you speak a little Spanish. They assume most gringos take out. The TV is blaring a Hispanic station.

The best choices here are the various meats featured in their tortas and tacos --all involving good portions of savory, flavorful morsels of beef/pork/goat (my favorites are the carnitas and the carne asada). This is also one of the few places in the area that has Cemitas (the great tortas from Puebla, with string cheese (sometimes a bit too much), avocado and chipotle peppers/sauce). They also have Chilaquiles, Gorditas and Guaraches (rather unusual in local Mexican restaurants). After ordering at the counter, the order is brought by waitresses to your table, where condiment bowls offer the choice of four freshly-made sauces (some of which are extremely hot). Sometimes the music can be loud, but Tres Reyes is a preferred stop for a cheap, quick and unpretentious good meal.

I had a Barbacoa con Carne quesadilla. It was very good and came with a red chili pepper sauce that was mildly spicy and flavorful. I'll be here on business for a couple of weeks and plan to go back.

This place is always busy, but the food is fantastic. I like this location, but prefer the one over on 450 (in the plaza next to the beltway) as the seating is more spacious. My favorite is always the torta de milonesa, and wife gets the pazole. Great food.
