365 Restaurants, 2 Kids, 1 Giant Fiasco
Today is my real birthday and Ogre planned a Phipps family excursion to Scarborough Faire. We planned to stop at Fuel City as we read in the Observer that they have “the best street tacos” and have heard this from other sources as well. We see Fuel City every time we head to Austin, so we thought this would be the perfect spot for our childsplate lunch on my birthday! Well, we found it’s not so much a sit down restaurant…
Ogre sent me to the walk up window to let him know what I wanted to order. Ahhh, I see. So I went up there and then told Ogre what I wanted while I sat in the car with the kids.
It took a few minutes, but the kids were okay in the car. Ogre brought back the goods and we ate it in the car before driving off to Scarborough Faire.
That’s it, not very exciting!
We ordered the beef and al pastor. They are double layer corn tortilla with meat, cilantro, and onions. They were awesome!! A million people (I don’t actually know if it’s a million) weren’t wrong. I really think these might be the best street tacos I’ve ever had! Perfectly grilled and flavorful. Ogre says it’s the best al pastor he’s ever had because it doesn’t have the “pineapple thing going on.”
Walk up window! No tables to sit at!
Is your car kid friendly??? Cause that’s where you’re going to end up eating!!
I definitely would stop here for a quick bite when I’m travelling out of town and I’d visit frequently if I lived nearby! Kids or no kids!!
Childsplate.com chronicles our journey to find the perfect family restaurant. We are looking for restaurants with excellent food and a great attitude towards kids, even the whiny, cranky ones! We will be headed out to a different restaurant every single day to provide ourselves (and you) with some entertainment and good information about DFW area restaurants. We hope you will visit frequently and use our experiences to create some fun dining experiences of your own! Watch out, DFW, the Phipps family is going out to eat!
