Grapevine, TX Edition: Dallas/Fort Worth Airport - Urban Taco

Urban Taco
It's no secret I am not a huge fan of Tex-Mex, but I figured if there was a place to turn me into a believer, it'd be in Texas.

Urban Taco... But, maybe, choosing airport food wasn't the best option. Urban Taco has a few locations, one of which being in the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport.

Urban TacoSo, I ordered three tacos from the menu:

CHICKEN TINGA
chile braised chicken & potatoes, queso fresco, avocado lime crema 3

DOS EQUIS AMBER BARBACOA
beer and chile braised beef, pickled red onions, black bean & roasted corn pico 3

AL PASTOR
chile rubbed pork, grilled pineapple, cilantro, onions, salsa roja 3

The Al Pastor was the best, with a good balance and a little head. The Barbacoa was good, but the pickled red onion was overwhelming and nothing to really bring it all together. And the Tinga was overwhelmed with that avocado lime crema that just wasn't doing it for me. So, overall, not bad. I really liked one of the three. The other two were just OK. I wonder if the standalone locations would be better... or if it's just Tex-Mex for me in general.
