Tin Roof Tacos has been around for only three years, but it owns this category and even has a second location in Meridian. It was founded by two sisters from Texas who decided Boise needed a good ol’ Tex-Mex taco with pulled pork, grilled chicken, brisket, shrimp or fish. You’ll also find breakfast tacos and veggie tacos, and all of them at street taco prices — $2.25-$2.50. The big winner is the Tin Roof taco with shredded pork seared in achiote paste, topped with pineapple relish and cilantro onion mix.
