CLOSED: Rockin' TacoLake View | Website
This trendy Lakeview taqueria offers Mexican food that's as fresh as it is fast to a cross-section of customers that includes local high school students, neighborhood types and ink junkies from the tattoo shop down the street. The kitchen uses made-from-scratch marinades to prepare the steak and chipotle garlic chicken, and the beans inside the burritos haven't ever touched a can. Vegetarians have a number of ordering options: Any soft taco or burrito can be filled with filled with marinated tofu or fajita vegetables. If you're craving a midday Mex fix, check out the lunch specials. And if you're jonesing for a jam session? Co-owner Cristian Saenz says you're welcome to take down the electric guitar, bongos or one of the other instruments hanging on the wall and rock out while you wait for your order.
