I've been a customer at La Especial since I was a 7 year old boy in 1956...when they used to be located below Revolucion Ave in an arcade. Although some items on the menu seem to have gone downhill in preparation, their tacos are still the most amazing...a blend of finely shredded beef and potato wrapped in double corn tortillas, steamed and just slightly oily...their zahanoria are the best anywhere, and their salsa is too...all unchanged since the 50s. They add some fresh radish and green onion and it is the perfect taco. They are still owned by the same family and the service is always stellar. I cannot recommend any traditional Mexican restaurant more highly than La Especial. If you really like American versions of Mexican food, drowning in cheese, you may not like this...it is a true Mexican flavor that is quite different from the Americanized version...everyone we've ever taken agrees that La Especial is better than the best they've ever had!
