Tacos Heris in Durango is now a small taco chain with 3 locations. I went to the location on Alberto Terrones as it was conveniently close to the 2 tacos de tripas stands I wanted to visit (El Tripilin y El Cuñao). Tacos Heris also serves up a variety of delicious Mexican food but I was on a taco quest.
What is impressive about this place is they were extremely busy with just take-out orders never mind the line up to get a seat. I waited over 30 mins just to sit down. A lot of diners were enjoying tacos along side burritos and some other of their delicious offerings of Mexican Cuisine.
The staff were incredibly friendly and I was impressed with the one waiter, with his hand wrapped in a bandage, serving the entire restaurant, flying across the floor like he was on a boosted board answering every hand, facial gesture, or call that came his way. I had to compliment him on his superpower skills when I left.
Even the chefs were scrambling to get the orders out and you can seem them bustling in the kitchen but one of them noticed me taking a video and managed to smile for the camera.
AtmTacos Heris there are 3 tacos to choose from. Asada, Pastor and Molleja.
The carne asada tacos are a grilled beef taco usually coming from a flank steak. Simple ingredients with a ton of flavour.
Tacos Al Pastor is your spit grilled meat - and their “trompo” which is hiding in the kitchen.
And finally their tacos Molleja which is their crispy tender sweetbread taco which they translate to “gizzards”.
I tried all 3 tacos and they were all equally delicious although I think the Molleja would be my “Sophie’s Choice”. If you are a millennial you should ask your parents about that movie.
