Tacos of West Gate City Boulevard

posted on August 6, 2018 by Colleen FitzGerald

Tacos… a topic I never imagined myself writing high praise about not even ten years ago. As upsetting as this may be for you to read, tacos were a food I mostly avoided for the large majority of my life. To me, tacos only came from Old El Paso boxes. You know, the kits with…Read more
