It is, it turns out, possible for Tex-Mex food to be both spicy and bland. Don't believe it? Try the tacos de chilaquiles or tacos de huevos a la mexicana at the Taco House.
Everything we had — four kinds of tacos, and coffee — was scalding hot. The coffee was passable, but the tacos relied exclusively on quantity for any appeal they could claim. This place has been around for ages, so I guess that's enough for a good number of people.

There is no service at the Taco House: you order at the counter and pick up your food when they call your number. There is no atmosphere, either: bare floors, minimalist décor, aging tables and lumpy bench seats: a real utilitarian setting. The prices were unremarkable, although my dining partner is convinced that he's never paid so much for a fajita taco. (The overall bill, though, was right where it should've been.)
