“Aqui se prohibe dietos,” proclaims a sign at La Banqueta’s flagship location, an East Dallas cult favorite. “Diets are prohibited here.” It’s easy to comply, as La Banqueta’s Mexico City-style tacos are definitely appetizing, served open-face on doubled corn tortillas grilled so their edges are chewy-crisp, showered generously with chopped onion and cilantro and garnished with lime. Suadero (brisket) has terrific flavor, as does the pastor, with its nice crispy bits; happily, it doesn’t go overboard on the pineapple. Feeling adventurous? I’d skip the tripe (it was greasy) in favor of cabeza, which was rich and pleasantly funky. Closed Sunday. -- Leslie Brenner/Guide
