"Best tacos in town! We always eat at Tacos del Norte when we visit from Vancouver. On our last visit, we had the 4 corn tacos combo of chicken, steak, and shredded pork fillings. The meat is perfectly seasoned with and you get three choices of tasty salsa. The place is small but has lots of seating outside. Nothing fancy—just fantastic Mexican food!
