If you live in Tucson, you know Guero Canelo! What started out as a small taco stand, many years ago in the heart of Tucson, Arizona, is now a taco-empire. Come with the inspector as he enjoys Guero Canelo's amazing carne asada, along with some great music and a few friendly smiles.

This episode originally ran on Cox TV-7 in Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona, on Wednesday, August 19th on the TV show Su Vida.


  1. 4.5 for the Guero Canelo... impressive... most impressive. A must stop by when in Tucson - good one!

  2. She kind of doubletaked when you said "i'm going to inspect your taco"...LOL . Great vid as always, I really miss Arizona.

  3. Yea, the Taco Inspector will inspecto youro tacoooo. She liked that. Hey dub, this is your best camera work yet. Hire this guy!

  4. Hell yes! Guero Canelo for the win!
    Also Dub, if you get a chance, swing by the new joint on Wilmot called "El Taco Tote" You will dig it since you like Carne Asada, they actually GRILL it there! Instead of frying it like most places. Plus delicious home-made grilled tortillas and a huge, fresh topping bar!

  5. Hey man, I'm at the UA. Can you recomend a Tucson taco joint thats not in a shady area? idono man, I came here from the chicago burbs and some areas just seem... sketchey.

    But I do love Mex. food :D

  6. I love the Carmelos there. So good!

  7. So I was born in Tucson but I grew up in Phoenix (I still live here). Most of my family lives in Tucson. My parents are divorced and my dad took me to Tucson every other weekend from 1991-2002 (from when I was 7 till I was 18). Anyway I've been to Eeeges and Los Beto's why haven't I heard of this place? I consider Tucson my 2nd home and know the town well. Did it come after 2002? Where is this place? I must go there next time I'm in town.
