In 1975, Rosina Gallardo, a native of Zacatecas, Mexico, opened her first Amapola Rico Taco. Initially a drive-in, the eatery has since transformed into five restaurants with indoor seating and drive-thru windows. Rosina's dedication to popular and lesser-known Mexican flavors, however, remains unchanged. She fills burritos and soft-shell tacos with not only classic meats such as steak and pork, but also with goat, carne asada, and chicharr?n. Other Mexican staples such as cheese enchiladas and breakfast platters of huevos rancheros round out the menu.
