(WMC-TV) - ANDY'S BIG TIP OF THE WEEK:Elena's Taco Shop, 6105 Summer Ave. #101, Bartlett, TN, (901) 417-7915
San Diego, Southern Cal cooking: carne asada grilled fresh and ground fresh, loaded with avocado and tasting like love.
That's Elena's Taco Shop.
That's why Markeith and Amy Williams of Bartlett nominated the establishment as our Big Tip of the Week.
"They're clean, they're nice, they're friendly," said Amy.
"It's so authentic," said Markeith. "Typical Southern Cal food."
Elena Gonzalez -- former San Diego resident by way of Durango, Mexico -- and her family make every dish to order. The recipes - especially her fish tacos and her California carne asada french fries - are all hers.
The pleasure is all yours.
"I was stationed in San Diego," said Markeith Williams. "Once I heard about Elena's Taco Shop, I came and tried it, and I was sold."
"I kind of like the whole California surf-rock theme they got," said East Memphis customer Daniel Lissner. "The food is really good, very authentic."
"They have a customer for life," said Williams.
Make that two. Or three. Or several dozen. The line's out the door.
WHAT ANDY LIKES: California Carne Asada Burrito (Carne Asada, Cheese, French Fries [inside the burrito!], Sour Cream, Pico de Gallo); Veggie Burrito (Rice, Cabbage, Pico de Gallo, Elena's homemade guacamole); Elena's Grilled Fish Taco in Corn Tortilla; Grilled Chicken/Steak Tortas.
