The pastor pleases at Tacos El Guero

Tacos El Guero stands in a shopping center just a few storefronts down from the Sand Creek library. We enter the petite dining room for a late lunch and find a small crowd of construction workers sitting around plates of tacos. We order a torta al pastor ($7.50) to go, hoping for rich, tender pork and plenty of it. Ours arrives on a foam tray, wrapped in checked butcher paper and plastic wrap, ready for a more demanding transit than we intend to inflict upon it. The bolillo roll comes packed with avocado, refried beans, crema and a thin slice of ham, as well as a goodly amount of pork. Unfortunately, any citrus notes vanish, though we’re happy enough with the seasoning as it is. So while it’s true we’ve had cheaper and better tortas in town, we’re hardly put out, and we even have leftovers. Next time, we might follow the other customers’ lead and go for a plate of tacos.
