3 Brother's Tacos

Address: Corner of 200 E 500 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84111. 801.688.9352.

Review: I park in front of an old folks' home on 500 S whenever I have a hearing at the Matheson Courthouse. On the way to the court is a new taco shop called 3 Brother's Tacos.

3 Brother's makes all manner of standard taco truck fare: tacos, burriots, tortas, etc. I wanted me some tacos, so I picked three: one tongue, one chicken, and one adovada. All came topped with grilled onions.

All came with the normal self-serve accompaniments: radishes, cilantro, salsas, limes, etc. The tongue was succulent and well seasoned. (Tongue is possibly my favorite taco nowadays. The meat is so supple it's a real treat to eat.) The chicken had that great Mexican taco feel, and was cooked perfectly. The best, however, was the adovada (pork cooked with red chiles). The pork was juicy and fall-apart tender. The chiles lend a spicy and oddly fruity taste that goes swimmingly with the pork. A little red salsa, lime, and cilantro made this darn good taco. The only real knock on this place is the corn tortillas are of the store-bought variety. Hand-made tortillas always make taco-stand tacos exponentially better. In any case, 3 Brother's tacos are money.

Rating: 6.5/10 (5/10 is average).
