Hecho En Iowa-A Search for the Best Hometown Tacos: Locale 18, Washington

Mi Pueblo Real is cooking up a Mexican storm for all the locals and visitors in this hometown! 1021 West Madison Street, Washington, Iowa

Washington, IA: Washington County

Our taco tour led us into the county seat of Washington County and we discovered a very busy restaurant that is pumping out a lot of delicious food. Team Goodvin was more than hungry and you’ll see what I mean when you look at what we ordered. We came for tacos and left having a lot more!

First things first. The Carne Asada tacos came out with a traditional Mexican presentation. A very warm fresh corn tortilla filled with juicy steak, with a hint of lime, chopped onion, and big helping of chopped cilantro. That’s a flavor combination that will never get old.

Great work on the tacos, Mi Pueblo Real. Now lets see what else you’re slinging our way. A burrito the size of an overweight chihuahua-Check. Smothered cheese enchiladas-Check. Shrimp nachos-Check. A big ole chimichanga and nice helping of beautiful guacamole-Check. Lively decor depicting authentic Mexican landscapes-You know it!

We’re loving this challenge, but why are we putting ourselves through the anguish of picking just one to be awarded as best hometown tacos? Because their can only be one highlander. That’s the best lesson I learned coming out of the 80’s. See you again taco-mania!

  1. Hi, Team Goodvin. Thank you for sharing this colorful and humorous review. I loved the line, “A burrito the size of an overweight chihuahua-Check.”
