Pupuceria Y Taqueria Los Pinos in Laurel

You can't buy a better snack than a $2 taco, and any errands that take you along Rte 1 should give you a chance for Mexican.

I already loved the Pupuseria Lorenita's truck in Elkridge, which is so established that it has phone numbers, regular hours and multiple employees just north of Rte 175.  Last week, I stumbled on Pupuceria Y Taqueria Los Pinos in Laurel north of Main Street.  The beef tacos were just as delicious as Lorenita's.  The tortillas were unusually thick with the real corn flavor that I can't make for myself at home.

The Los Pinos truck sits in the parking lot of the Rollrite Tires in Laurel.  The woman working there said she is there Monday to Saturday, 8 am to about 5 to 7 pm depending on customers.  She has a small menu, including pupusas, carne asada and fried chicken.  She also has a picnic table under a tree -- a shady spot to sit that Lorenita's would do well to copy!
