When You’re on the Go

1 Roque’s Carnitas
On the Plaza, 100 Old Santa Fe Trail
This is a new category for SFR’s annual poll and we really weren’t sure what kind of responses we’d get. But it shouldn’t have been a surprise that Roque’s Carnitas took the top slot. The scent of that sizzling grill has a way of wafting around the whole Plaza on a warm day. The addictive aroma comes from the combination of thinly sliced onions, green chiles and tender strips of beef cooking on Roque Garcia’s tiny grill. Wrapped in a flour tortilla and topped with a chunky, spicy salsa, these carnitas taste as good as they smell. Just be careful if you’re wearing white; those juices have a way of spilling all over your shirt (especially if it’s white and dry-clean only). You’ll almost always see hungry eaters stopped just a few feet away, alternating bites of carnitas with slurps of lemonade. Hey, is it lunch time yet?
