It would be easy to pass by El Taco Riendo without taking notice. Located in a modest storefront in northeast Minneapolis, the Mexican restaurant is small and unpretentious. But those who have ventured in know the secret. El Taco Riendo (the Laughing Taco) offers an excellent selection of tacos at a bargain price. Your meal is made fresh right in front of you, and you have plenty of meat options to choose from, including slow-cooked barbacoa, tinga de pollo (chicken), and, for the brave taco consumer, lengua (beef tongue). A regular taco goes for a mere $2.20. If you're looking for a break from the chain Mexican restaurants, swing over to Northeast and check out El Taco Riendo.
