With all the taco joints in town, you wouldn't think it was possible to come up with a new, better way to do one. But with Pinche Taqueria -- the restaurant that does not dare say its name on its sign, which instead just promises "tacos, tequila, whiskey" -- Kevin Morrison did just that. This raucous, irreverent spot grew out of Morrison's highly successful food truck, Pinche Tacos. The menu is focused and simple, featuring an array of gringified tacos packed with succulent meats and strong flavors, as well as a handful of appetizers and the best churros we've ever tasted; the bar program is a frequently evolving homage to tequila, whiskey and debauchery. But this restaurant is so much more than a sum of its parts: Every time we stop by, we love it a little bit more. Pinche Taqueria feeds more than our bellies: It feeds our imagination, letting us enter someone else's magical world for a while so that we remember, again, what dining out is all about.
