If you don’t know where to look, you’re likely to miss Trompo, a quaint little taco shop that’s garnering some huge buzz from Dallas foodies. But behind the unassuming exterior lies any taco-lover’s dream: a no-frills shop dedicated to serving up authentic street-style tacos.

Trompo’s humble exterior is easy to miss, but you certainly want to spot it before the notorious “sold-out” sign appears on the door.

The menu at Trompo isn’t lengthy, but that’s not a bad thing. It features a collection of standout tacos and quesadillas that are available daily until supplies sell out. And while it might seem unlikely, sellouts do happen fairly frequently; consider it a testament to how tasty the tacos are.

To avoid missing out on any of Trompo’s offerings, arrive early. Because this spot is so popular, it usually draws a crowd, which means you may encounter a line at any time. However, it’s worth the wait to try some of Trompo’s signature spit-roasted pork tacos, which are seasoned to perfection and garnished with cilantro, onions, and all the self-serve salsa you desire.

Trompo’s tacos are proof that great tacos don’t have to be fancy to be delicious.

If pork’s not your thing, Trompo also offers two other taco options: savory Bistek and vegetarian Paneer and Poblano. If you’re a fan of cheese, definitely try the latter; the combination of creamy paneer and smoky poblano creates a veggie taco that even meat-eaters will love.

Trompo doesn’t just do tacos, however. The menu also features a small sampling of quesadillas that are equally as delicious as their cheese-less taco counterparts. Trompo’s namesake crimson pork creates a killer quesadilla when combined with cheese in the Gringa. If you’re really hungry, order the Campechana, which features a blend of both pork and steak in the same delicious quesadilla.

The Gringa quesadilla is cheesy, delicious, and delightfully simple.

We won’t lie, the wait at Trompo can take a while if you visit during peak hours. However, it’s worth taking a little extra time to sink your teeth into some of the city’s most authentic tacos. To pass the time, order an ice-cold Mexican Coke to quench your thirst, and enjoy the experience of visiting a true taco treasure. Just be sure to get there before it all sells out; don’t say we didn’t warn you.
