Tacos El Zaga is a food truck in Santa Ana. It serves only tacos, burritos, tortas and quesadillas, with the usual meat offerings of any taquería -- this ain’t a regional-specialty type of place. And it doesn’t have to be, so wonderful the food is. The burritos are hefty, wrapped in silky flour tortillas; the quesadillas are gooey and the size of a drafting triangle. And the tacos are just perfect: large, spilling over with juices, enlivened by furious salsas and the pickled onion-habanero relish that has been the rage among loncheras for the past couple of years. It's only open at night, and the scrolling marquee is a beacon of hope for those speeding up and down Main Street.
