I love tacos and to be honest with you, I've been having a hard time getting my hands on some GOOD tacos here in East Texas. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of Torchy's Tacos but I wanted something more "authentic" so I asked for some suggestions from folks here in the street.

As I was getting a haircut recently at Mass Connections Barber Shop, I posed the "Who has the best tacos?" question to folks at the shop and everyone suggested that I go over to Ruby's Mexican Restaurant in Tyler.

As I pulled up, folks were already lined up almost outside the door so I know I made the right choice and the suggestion from locals was verified. As I stepped inside the first thing that caught my eye was the "Doblados" aka the #1 which is by far and away their most popular order and the thing they are most known for!

You can choose between several different meat choices but for me, I went with the steak and the shells were stuffed with cheese. It was absolutely amazing and I ended up ordering a few more "regular" pastor tacos to complement the Doblados and it was amazing as well.
