Patrons can casually slide into a forefront booth or slither into the larger back dining room at Tacos Flor to order up authentic Guanajuato-influenced Mexican fare. Fajita plates harness corn or freshly homemade flour tortillas to cloak rice, beans, and salad among a mountain of chicken ($7.25) or beef ($7.45), and three à la carte crispy beef tacos ($4.25) sate antsy teeth in need of crunchy chew toy. Specials like the Friday-only Lilly plate (crispy taco, cheese enchilada, rice, beans, and salad, $5.50) run rampant throughout the week, and short orders such as nachos ($4.50) snub forks for desired finger shovels.
