Resident Taqueria Feels Like Home

The taco is such a simple dish, yet there are so many ways to take it to the next level. Resident Taqueria has mastered the art of elevating tacos in a way that still feels familiar.

The quaint, community-oriented taco shop is rooted in down-home tradition. Tortillas are made by hand, and the menu is full of classic snacks you’d expect to see at any local taqueria, like Street Style Esquites. Just one bite of this hit side dish will remind you why the creamy, spicy corn is such a popular Mexican street treat.

For maximum enjoyment, pair an order of Street Style Esquites with a beer or margarita. 

Resident also serves other classics, like house-recipe Guacamole, which comes accompanied by a helping of authentic, freshly prepared tortilla chips. Get an order for the table, but don’t be surprised if you’re tempted to keep it all to yourself.

Every Guacamole recipe is different, and Resident's recipe comes topped with queso fresco and pepitas for extra crunch. 

However, Resident isn’t afraid to innovate beyond the boundaries of tradition. It stands out because of inventive, flavorful combinations of ingredients that make its tacos top-notch. Fresh, colorful veggies are combined with slow-braised meats to create a completely unique menu that doesn’t disappoint. The Braised Beef Short Rib taco, for example, boasts a balanced mixture of tender, seasoned beef, onion, tomato confit, and chipotle crema that will leave you wishing you’d ordered two.

Resident's Braised Beef Short Rib is tender, perfectly seasoned, and definitely worth trying. 

The Glazed Pork Belly is another wonderful choice, thanks to a tantalizing combination of sweet pork, house slaw, and fresh vegetables housed in a handmade tortilla. Resident has perfected the art of preparing its meats, and every taco reflects that attention to detail.

The sweet glaze on Resident's Pork Belly is balanced by the addition of cucumber, agave, and house slaw. 

Because the tacos are street-style, they’re small enough to order in groups. For the perfect flavor trio, also order the Resident Braised Pork Shoulder, and see why this little taqueria has such a reputation for serving meats with big flavor.

Pineapple provides the perfect sweet accent to Resident's Braised Pork Shoulder. 

Resident Taqueria is already becoming a fixture in its local community, but it’s an ideal destination for any Dallas taco-lover. Give it a try the next time you’re craving tacos, and be sure to snag an outdoor table and a margarita for the perfect summer dining experience.
