Critic's Review

In Fort Lauderdale, you really don't have to go very far to find a better taco; you just need to know where to look. Don't expect to find them on Las Olas, US1 or even A1A. You have to head into the ethnic neighborhoods located in areas rarely traveled by BMWs and Hummers.

Alegria really isn't that far from Downtown Fort Lauderdale; its just south of Catfish Dewey's. Its very easy to miss. Its right across from a 7/11 gas station. With cars parked in front, you can barely see the sign from the road.

Inside the tiny storefront are 3 patio type tables and a couple who jump up when someone comes in. I order a couple of tacos; they push the beans and rice, but you just want the tacos.

As you can see these are more like the tacos you'll get at a small place in Mexico than on US1. Hand made on a grill tended to by a guy who looks like he knows how to make tacos. No cheese. No sour cream. These are just good, authentic tacos.

They have lunch combos that I don't really find very appealing. For example you can get 2 tacos with rice and beans for $7.50. But the tacos are $2.50 each, so you're paying $2.50 for rice and beans. Fine if you want rice and beans, but I'd rather skip them or get a 3rd taco.

Of all of the "authentic" taco places, I like the chicken here the best. It's nicely seasoned.
