Ricos Tacos - CLOSED
When we saw the Aladdin Mexican grocery store at the corner of Wallace and Glen Creek had a sign out front saying they now served tacos, we were thrilled. We have no taco trucks or taco stands in West Salem, and sometimes, it really is too much effort to go "into town," as we West Salemites call crossing the bridge. We have visited Aladdin's on occasion for some of our favorite bakery items and meat and have always been impressed with both the goods as well as their customer service. So, we turned the car around and pulled up to Ricos. Ricos really is just a grill outside, with a table and chairs set in the middle of one of the parking spaces. She takes cash, but you can also use your debit/credit card inside and bring her the receipt.
Unlike a taco truck, there were limited options, given the size of the operation, with only tacos on the menu. She offers carne asada, pollo asada, lengua, and carne adobado as meat options. To top your taco, you have the choice of red onion, cilantro, spicy red salsa and lime. We ordered a combination of carne asada and pollo adada with all the toppings and settle down at the table to wait with the Jarritos sodas we purchased in the store when we paid for our tacos. She brought us our tacos which were generously filled with a nice wedge of lime, in my book a necessity for tacos.
