The Brothers L&C Latin Fast Food Truck on 18th Street and 6th Avenue doesn't seem to specialize in tacos—their printed menu mostly consists of sandwiches, breakfast goods, and pastries—but how could you resist their hand-written, fluorescent green sign touting "SPECIAL TACOS"? I couldn't. And choosing tacos was easy since they only have three kinds—beef, pork, and chicken. You can get one for $2.50 or three for $7 (hell yeah, save 50 cents). I went for all three.
Three of these larger-than-average tacos will leave you absolutely stuffed. (Not that I'm complaining.) Each one is made of two corn tortillas that will probably be weakened by meat juice by the time you carry the tacos to your final destination, but it won't be too messy since they're all wrapped in wax paper and snuggled together in a foil-lined container. The tacos are generously stuffed with moist, shredded meats topped with chopped cilantro, onions, and hot sauce. They also throw in a couple of lime wedges on the side. I didn't prefer any one meat over the others; I mostly liked that I had three kinds to alternate between.
Since it's easy for me to get to from work, I'm sure I'll be back for another taco trio. Besides, there are tortas and burritos to be had.
