Riverfront Times' Description
CLOSED Taqueria los Tarascos lies in a strip mall near the airport and is actually much more spacious than a traditional taqueria. The menu includes standard Mexican fare catered to American tastes - enchiladas, burritos, quesadillas and fajitas. A few items remain from the taqueria's prior menu, including mole poblano.

What's the easiest way to find great Mexican food in St. Louis? Well, first thing you do is head for the airport. That's not a punch line. Woodson Terrace, the small municipality located immediately south of Lambert Field seriously: the runways are a brisk walk to the north is home to the fantastic Taqueria los Tarascos. Don't let the name fool you. This isn't a roadside shack but a full-size restaurant, serving both traditional taqueria fare like tacos and tortas (including the ahogada torta, pork leg meat in an addictively spicy árbol chile sauce) and heartier meals like mole poblano. The standout dishes might be the fork-tender lamb barbacoa (available only on weekends) and the spicy and wonderfully tart and cheesy tortilla soup. Bring a quart of it on your next flight down Mexico way, and the locals might wonder where they can find such great Mexican food.
Tips from foursquare
I like the combo plate with a a margarita to wash it down with. They make a good chicken burrito too.
Great food at a good price. Some of the best Mexican I have had in a long time.
Good good and the steak burrito with rice awesome
They have authentic tacos on the menu as well as tortas! Yay!
Came in around 12:15 and service is pretty slow. :-/
