Taco Trail: Part III

May 17, 2018

Breakfast tacos? Gas station taco trucks? Yep, you heard us. Get ready to step outside of your tacomfort zone, because this week’s stops on our PORTICO Taco Trail are sure to push the boundaries of what you think a taco should be. 


Señor Taco

6537 Old Canton Road

Ridgeland, 39157


Monday – Saturday, 6 a.m. – 8 p.m. (until 3 p.m. on Wed.) & Sunday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.


Type: Fajita Steak, Fajita Chicken, Chorizo/Potato/Eggs in Salsa

Price: $2.99 each


Here, regardless of the time of day, order a breakfast taco. I promise you’ll face the ultimate temptation: tacos that are the size of burritos. The combination soft spicy eggs, rich chorizo and golden potatoes inside the blessedly billowy tortilla will lead you to commit the sin of gluttony. You can always repent later…or not. The recipes in this mom and pop taco stand are based on recipes from the owner’s family's restaurant in San Antonio. Their crispy chicken tacos are on point, so you should get an order of those, too!




Taqueria Mi Bonita

5850 Ridgewood Road (behind the Shell station)

Jackson, 39211


Monday – Thursday, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. & Friday – Saturday, all day


Type: Carne Asada, Pollo, Pastor (I got mine Mexican style: onions and cilantro)

Price: $8.00 for 3 tacos


This taqueria is a food truck that's parked in the parking lot of the Shell station on Ridgewood Road. Inside there are two people cooking up some fine fare and taking orders. There are two picnic tables under an awning if you want to eat there, or you can take your order to go. The selection of taco fillings ranges from the usual (pollo and asada) to the authentic (chicharones and lengue), and all are delicious. But it's the tortilla that sets these tasty tacos apart. The tortillas are cooked on a flat top until they're transmuted into a swoon-worthy crispy/soft taco hybrid. I haven't had another taco like it. No taco for you? I know that quesadillas might seem a little mundane, but Mi Bonita makes theirs shine. All of your orders come with either a mild tomato salsa or a spicy, spicy tomatillo salsa, and they come topped American style (lettuce, tomato, sour cream) or Mexican style (onion and cilantro).
