While Taqueria LES has no apparent religious affiliation, the owners still abide by their own amended 10 Commandments, “Los Diez Mandamientos,” which explicitly state that no fajitas, nachos, seven-layer dips, strawberry-kiwi margaritas, or fajitas (yes, mentioned twice) can possibly be ordered. To go with this attitude, the setting is suitably rock and roll, with loud 80s music blaring from the speakers, and provincial Mexican pop-cultural art adorning the walls, all illuminated by a few strings of Christmas lights. While the taqueria sets the perfect scene to indulge in a Mexican meal, the fare is not as enticing as the surroundings. The guacamole and machaca burrita with egg and beef are worth noting, distinct from typical Mexican fare. But trying these makes it glaringly obvious that the remaining items on the menu verge on bland. A few dishes are served below a layer of cheese, but once it’s gone, the flavor tends to disappear as well. The majority of the food menu is undeniably fresh, though a few dishes might actually be improved by breaking their 10 Commandments and introducing a few of those seven-layer dip ingredients.
