In fact, the only food Taqueria La Estrella provides besides traditional Mexican are items such as hamburgers and fries. The main reason Salazar said he offers this sort of food is to accommodate kids.
“We call it Taqueria in the Spanish language,” he said. “In (English), the Mexican tacos we are selling here are (generally) called ‘street tacos,’”
Salazar went on to discuss how much he has noticed that those who do not understand the Spanish language are usually familiar with the term “street tacos.”
The recipes Salazar uses to create his traditional Mexican food come from his family as well as the restaurants he has worked at in the past.
“The only thing we don’t make here (are) the tortillas and bread,” he said. “But other than that, everything is fresh-made.”
Salazar said the only reason he does not make tortillas is because his space is too small. But he does hope to get more space someday soon.
Some of the featured dishes Taqueria La Estrella offers include gorditas, menudo, tacos, tortas, barbacoa and birria.
Currently, the business offers dine-in and carry-out, but they hope to offer catering in the near future as well.
Taqueria La Estrella serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and is open Tuesday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
