Carthage, Missouri - Taco Tour
I've found that friends want to ask me to take them to my favorite taco/latin american places but don't want to come off racist by requesting this from their brown friend. I am not offended by this at all, I'll take you into the Mexican store and help you shop if you buy me a paleta and I'll help you order off the menu in a hole in the wall taqueria for a couple of tacos! I'm easy to please.
I know most of my white friends feel self conscious going in any of these places for the first time and I share the same information with all of them each time, why not put it here? Below you'll find my recommendations and personal opinions on our local Hispanic shops + restaurants. There's almost always someone that speaks English there and all of them let you order food to go! So don't hesitate in patronizing these local small businesses that need our support!
