Our Axios Texas social host is on a quest to visit every gas station taqueria his mileage budget can handle.

Greg Castillo is going to rate the tacos in one of three ways: "keep driving," "worth stopping for" and "worth going out of your way."

  • He will post more on our fledgling Instagram account. Follow here.

The latest: During SXSW, he stopped by Tierra Linda Taqueria, inside a La Familia Market that shares a lot with a Shell gas station, across U.S. 183 from the Target complex that includes Ramen Tatsu-ya.

What to order: Definitely the al pastor taco, which costs $2.10.

  • "It almost tastes like mole," Greg observes. "My mouth is watering from the flavor."

Where: Tierra Linda Taqueria at 8540 Research Blvd.

Six-word verdict: Worth going out of your way.
