Carnitas and a handsome range of tacos within a grocery store.

Restaurant Details

There's no shortage of tacos, tortas, and burritos on this stretch of Clark Street, but this taqueria wedged in the corner of Supermercado Chapala does a brisk business with shoppers, proffering roast chicken and a handsome range of tacos fillings, as befits a well-stocked, bustling carniceria. Though asada, cabeza, carnitas, suadero, cesina, chorizo, pollo, pastor, lengua on corn tortillas are all generously seasoned with onion, cilantro, and fat lime wedges, some--such as the pastor and chorizo--can be quite dry and require liberal dressing with the smoky red salsa or a tangy salsa verde that registers on the tongue like the slow stroke of a razor. But the carnitas are just about perfect, well integrated with crispy and fatty bits. All orders arrive with a few roasted serranos and green onions, and on the weekends pozole, menudo, consomme, and barbacoa are doled out.
