Taqueria El Tio Juan's - Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, Mexico

It was Labor Day Weekend, 2009...R Dub's Big-Ass Bus to Rocky Point took 50 listeners to Puerto Peñasco, Mexico to enjoy the weekend. There was sand, sun, and a lot of fun. But perhaps the most magical moment of the weekend came when The Inspector and his friends stopped by Tio Juan's. Situated just two blocks from our hotel, Taqueria El Tio Juan's lies in the heart of Rocky Point's Calle 13. On a street filled with restaurants, stands, carts, and taco establishments of all kinds, something about Jaun's open-air, half-stand, half-restaurant-looking set-up was appealing. Maybe it was the colorful tile on the floor, or the smell of carne on the grill that called you in; or the rows of old school Coca-Cola platic tables, and patrons of all ages that seemed to be having fun. Whatever it was that brought me to Uncle Juan's, I was glad I came. Get ready for some of the best tacos ever!
