Don’t let the kitschy red pepper lights fool you. The tacos at this Georgetown dive bar are legit—and only $3 each. Masa tortillas are handmade in-house, griddled, then filled with frijoles negros (black beans), pollo adobada (adobo-marinated chicken), or cochinita pibil (Yucatan-style barbecue pork). Wash it down with a cold Corona.
