Everything is fresh at this inexpensive, funky eatery, from the tortillas and salsas to the tamales and tacos. The Lone Star Taqueria has been around longer than most, and looks like someone transported a taco shack from a Baja beach right into Cottonwood Heights. It’s a cool and kitschy place, with cold Mexican cervezas served in glass cowboy boots and a rockin’ house sound system. The only thing missing is a beach. Everything is fresh at this inexpensive restaurant, from the tortillas and salsas to the tamales and tacos. The mahi-mahi fish tacos with cilantro aioli are wildly popular at the Lone Star, and I love the zippy jalapeño-spiked guacamole. The burritos aren’t bad, but at Lone Star Taqueria, it’s really all about the tacos. Flip-flops are optional. Located in Cottonwood Heights.
