Doce Taqueria Offers Good Value on Tacos and Bowls: Boston College vs. Pitt Football (Thurs., 11/16/23)
1) Doce Taqueria has cheap-’n-tasty tacos on the South Side. Tortilla choices include corn, flour, and crunched, which is a combination of hard corn, soft flour, and cheese-filled tortilla. The corn tortillas are gluten free. Toppings are numerous, and for a $2 upcharge, the Beyond Meat protein substitute is not only gluten and soy free but also vegan. Another popular item is the Dino Bowl, which consists of protein served on a bed of lettuce, house-made black beans, pico de gallo, guacamole, cholula crema, farmers cheese, cilantro, and lime. Also on the menu are loaded nachos and the Kid Queso quesadilla. Chips, salsa, guacamole, queso, and beans round out the sides with “assorted glass bottle beverages” to wash it all down. The restaurant’s interior is funky with taco imagery adorning the walls. 1302 E. Carson St., South Side. Also 4826 McKnight Road, North Hills. (M.V., C.M.)
2) The Pitt Panthers Football team has had a disheartening season so far. However, changes have been made. Christian Veilleux, who had a very rough outing against Notre Dame, is the latest starting quarterback. A loss to powerhouse Florida State and another loss against Syracuse at Yankee Stadium has them facing Boston College tonight. 7 p.m. Acrisure Stadium, 100 Art Rooney Ave., North Shore.
