Durham taquerias featured in Gourmet magazine
The September issue of Gourmet magazine, focus on Latino food in the US, features reviews of no less than five Durham taquerias. The article is, alas, not available online, but the SpiceLines blog has already done a followup, visiting Taqueria Lopez on Hillsborough Road (across from Kroger, in the space once occupied by La Fontina) and raving about the Caldo de 7 Mares and other dishes.
Other taquerias mentioned in the article include two that are within walking distance of Duke Park, Los Comales (in the old Dunkin' Donuts) and Super Taqueria, both on Roxboro St. I've done take-out at Los Comales (which means, i believe, clay ovens or clay pots) twice in the past month or so, and both times been thoroughly impressed.
Hopefully, none of these places will now become so popular that you can't get in to eat on a Friday night, but it's good to see some of this great local food getting some recognition.
UPDATE: Phil points out that he's got reviews of both Taqueria Lopez and Los Comales at The Archer Pelican.
