Imperial Taqueria a.k.a. Tacos, Oh yeah!!!

I've been driving past this taqueria for the past year and a half, and every time I do I think I really must try this place sometime. 


Well, sometime came the other day.
It has to be good because there have been very few times I've driven by that they weren't busy.
Some times the drive through spills out into the side street. 

KCB_1546Now you can see why.

I ordered two crispy shredded beef tacos with rice and beans. $7.99 

Just look at that fluffy rice. It is laced with celery and carrots and onion.  
I can almost guarantee they use a powdered chicken base to cook the rice. Don't ask me how I know.
The beans are equally good. They are not mashed beyond recognition, there are still some unmashed beans in there. No bean soup here. 

Do we really need to talk about the tender succulent beef?
The photo doesn't do it justice. 

So now, the rest of the story. 
I'm soooooo happy I tried this taco stand before I read the horrible, (understatement) reviews it received on one of the better-known review sites. 

Granted, it's not one of the cleanest places I've ever eaten at but come on,

KCB_1540It's not totally for the birds. 
I'll be back
