Food in the Field gives a sneak peek into what CNN's team is eating, and the food culture they encounter as they travel the globe.
Dallas-based Ed Lavandera describes himself as a "CNN correspondent, storyteller, Longhorn, the Cuban Texan." He travels frequently, but was recently back in the Lone Star State reporting on drought-related cattle auctions. He found tacos. Really, really good tacos.
Welcome to Fuel City Tacos - a 24-hour stand at a gas station, where all tacos - from breakfast to barbacoa - are only $1.40.

you guys make me want to come to texas now. i made some CHILES RELLENOS (FRIED STUFFED CHILES) on my own and it came out pretty good got the recipes from simplechickenmealrecipes.com they have a whole bunch of mexican recipes. but im really considering going to texas i live all the way in New York ,do you think its worth it?
Tacos, taquitos, tacotes..
It is all in the spicy hot flavor of a delicious garlic chile sauce.
Red or green, chile de arbol, jalapeno or serrano chile,
with or without cilantro..
Large or small tortillas plentifully filled with beef
Six to begin with, please.
Haha... nothing will ever beat Guadalajara or Mexico City's tacos
Driving thru Dallas in a month or so, I think we'll have to go look for this place.
You have been running this same stupid lame story for nine months now!!! Can't you think of anything else?

What I wouldn't give for good barbacoa breakfast tacos.. living in France is hard after growing up in Texas...
Not nearly as hard as living in Texas after growing up in France.
this place is actually located in Garland,Tx on fifth street. the taco shop is inside the gas station, not behind it. youre welcome (:
"a 24-hour stand at a gas station."
umm...thats not what it says on the title, you wannabe smart a..
Fuel City is indeed renowned. However, in a city with thousands of taco joints, there are superior options. Mr. Lavandera, I'd like the opportunity to show you where some of those can be found. Will you join me on a taco tour? I've also reached out to you on Twitter.
This same place was featured on Road Food, I am going to drive to Dallas and try it.
Living in L.A. means you can take your choice of literally dozens of Hot Trucks parked on the side of the street in the San Fernando Valley. Vanowen Street, Nordhoff, Victory Boulevard... they're literally all over the place, yet I've not had a bad authentic burrito or taco from ANY of them. Great food!!! And don't forget to get an Horchata to rinse it all down> MUY BUENO!
Usually the best of any food is found in "hole in the wall" or off the beaten path type places. I've had the tacos from Fuel City Tacos and they are delicious.
I was thinking about posting the exact same thing last night, but was too lazy. There was a questionable Mexican Fast Food place right outside Kirtland AFB where you weren't sure if the meat was stray cat, but it was darn good at 2 am after bar hopping.
There was a place like that where I used to patrol. Got called to alarm calls all the time where big rats would trip them. Didn't matter how many times they were shut down, they always reopened and always had rats. My lieutenant didn't care and would eat there anyway because he loved the tacos.
