Next is Horseshoe Park's Tacos El Metate, situated at 1742 S. Chambers Road. With four stars out of 188 reviews on Yelp, the fast food spot, which offers tacos and more, has proven to be a local favorite for those looking for a low-priced option. 

The site has lots more information on Tacos El Metate, which opened in April 2017.

Yelper Jenny W., who reviewed Tacos El Metate on March 8, shared, "Oooh their fish tacos are bomb! Both the batter and the fish had great flavor, not just a fried batter taste. The fish seemed very fresh too... They have a sauce bar with six different types, so you can probably find the style you like."
