Boy, have tacos and time flown since Taqueria Mixteca opened its doors at 1609 E. Third St. in Dayton.

Thousands upon thousands of tacos have been served, and the place always seems to be packed at lunch.

I popped into the Third Street location recently and was somewhat surprised when General Manager Francisco Mejia pointed out that it has been nearly eight years since the restaurant, a favorite among Best of Dayton voters, opened.

Taqueria Mixteca’s anniversary is in May.

It opened its second location at 2190 Shiloh Springs Road in Trotwood late last year.

Time has passed, but the taste of the food has remain consistently awesome and flavorful.

And eating there won’t break the bank.

You can find your favorites - quesadillas, enchiladas, burritos and fajitas, and dishes lesser-known to many American palates like tortilla based sopes and huaraches.

Taqueria Mixteca serves authentic Mexican food with standard meat choices - chorizo, pork, chicken grilled steak and ground beef.

There are also a few choices you don’t find just anywhere - breaded steak, beef tripe, beef tongue and, on the weekend only, shredded goat.

There are also several vegetarian options.

The tacos sell for $2.15 each and are served on corn tortillas piled high with cilantro, onion, and choice of meat.
