Remember when I told you about my visit to a Mexican grocery store in Bossier and discovered a big secret?

El Novillo is known for its meat counter or as they call it, a carniceria. It's one of the best in town. You can walk into the store with one thing on your mind, but the smells will distract you.

When I Stepped Inside The Store I Followed the Wonderful Aroma of a Mexican Restaurant.

I passed the bakery that had pan dulce (Mexican sweet bread) being put out by a lady who had clearly just taken it out of the oven. Yes, I stopped and took in all the sights and smells of the bakery.

In the Back Corner of This Mexican Grocery Store, There is a Hidden Restaurant Kitchen.

There isn't an actual menu that I could see. There are signs on the windows with what special dish they are serving, obviously, their specialty is tacos, however, they had Chile Rellenos, and all kinds of breakfast items. I sat down at one of the two tables available. You'll have to make your way through the soft drinks and chips to get to the tables. You may have to ask to share a table as I did.

This Restaurant Has No Name and It's One of Bossier's Best Kept Secrets Up Until Taco Wars

The hidden restaurant threw their tacos into the taco fight ring. Since the restaurant doesn't have a name it entered the ring as El Novillo Carniceria (Meat Market).

Turns Out The Secret Mexican Restaurant Has What It Takes to Gain More Than My Attention.

The Taco Wars Judges loved what the crew at El Novillo brought to the table literally and they earned the title of Taco Wars 2022 Best Taco.
