You can find the common man and Dallas billionaires in line here. No man gets special treatment. All must pay cash! It's a beautiful thing as the taco is the food of the people. Viva Los Tacos! Ok, that was crazy, but it's a great spot with great people watching ;)

So you pull up and realize you are at a gas station. Don't despair, don't leave, see it through because they are amazingly good. You will most likely see a huge line of people standing in line to get food. It is definitely worth the visit... $1.62 per taco!

I came here by recommendation and I'm glad I came. The flour tacos were yummy...The corn was not my thing...It just not what I'm used to and I think it's a local thing but I could be completely wrong. I added a fried pie with it and enjoyed my meal. stop by and grab a few, you won't regret it!... More

All I've ever tried here are the tacos. But boy, are they delicious! If you ever find yourself anywhere near downtown Dallas at any point in your life, go to fuel city for food!

They have the best al pastor aka spiced pork. Their barbacoa is a litter greasier than what your used to down in south Texas, but they are close to as good. Get the corn tortillas. If you still have room after stuffing your face with tacos, try the elote. It's roasted corn with mayo, cheese, hot sauce and all kinds... More

Stayed in Dallas for a quick weekend. Our hotel was about 10-15 min away and Fuel City came up as a recommended taco joint. We were a little skeptical (gas station, very high reviews) but the fun atmosphere and amazing food are worth the praise. The dinosaurs nearby are too fun and the view of the Dallas skyline is best... More

Amazing tacos available at all hours day and night. Night time after a concert or the closing of the bars you never know just who you might see here.
