The following is a public service announcement from the tummy of JBR: If you find yourself living on (or even visiting!) the north-central side of Tucson, say within walking distance of First and Ft. Lowell, get yourself some Taco Bron immediately.

This here is the Quesadilla Sierra Madre (queso blanco, pork chorizo, grilled poblano peppers, scallions, and the pico de gallo that was on the side).

But two things sold me on the place: (a) the high quality of the tortilla chips (always a mark of a Mexican restaurant that takes itself seriously), crunchy yet obviously fresh, and just oily enough, as a chip should be (b) the presence on the menu of queso fundido (pork fat held together in a glob of melted cheese; if you're not vegan, you'll probably agree that this is the closest thing you'll find to heaven on earth). The cheap beers & margaritas -- they're just gravy, my friend.

Here's a picture of their shrimp taco, which I'll need to try next time (and if I have my way, there'll be many next times).
