Lafayette, CO 80026
The Taco Wagon, crouching in the parking lot of El Mercado, a Mexican grocery in Lafayette, commands eye-rollingly long waits, but it's worth missing whatever commitment you've got lined up -- school, court, hell, even your nuptials -- to first profess your love for the breakfast burritos. They're delivered through a sliding glass window, behind which resides a couple with a no-nonsense sense of purpose: He takes your money; she creates Mexican magic. There are street tacos surfaced with marinated Mexican meats, onions and cilantro; tortas stacked with refritos, lengua, pickled jalapeños, avocado, queso and lettuce; and handheld breakfast burritos, served morning, noon and night from the wagon's window. The breakfast burritos -- blazing-hot green-chile-intensive packages bursting with scrambled eggs, nubs of spicy chorizo and slightly charred potatoes -- are assembled by callused hands that take the morning ritual more seriously than most people take their marriage. The Taco Wagon takes its salsas seriously, too, offering two housemade creations: one green, the other red, both worthy of their own ode to greatness.
Tips from foursquare
If you don't live in the area, you need to trek up to the El Mercado parking lot in Lafayette for the breakfast burritos from the Taco Wagon. They're worth it.
There's nothing better than a crane asada burrito with green chile (if you're in a spicy mood)
Tortas are pretty good
Amazing breakfast burritos.
Phenomenal tacos! Not on the menu, but you can mix and match on the 3 taco plate--make sure that you do!
