tacos! and other mexican fare
could be outdoor seating in the future with the improvements on Magnolia Street?
My first thought when I walked in was how much brighter and more cheerful it was than when Refuel occupied the space, which is great for a fun taco joint! The service was excellent: drinks right away, food came out hot and quickly, and our waiter was a delight, answering all of our questions.
I'm a cheese dip addict, so of course we started there. The chips and queso were great, but pretty standard. We asked what were popular items for lunch and were told the Tortas (sandwiches) and the Fajitas. The hubs went for the steak tortas, and I got the El Mex fajitas, with a mixture of steak, chicken and shrimp. (Full disclosure: I poured the rest of our cheese dip on top of my fajita mix before I snapped a pic, so when you are looking at the picture, just know it doesn't come like that normally.)
It was a lot of food, enough to take home half a sandwich and lots of rice and beans!!
I'd noticed this jug of white, milky stuff on the counter of the bar that was intriguing, so as we were paying I finally asked our server. He said it was a must try, and even brought us a sample! It is Horchata, a traditional Latin drink which tastes like milk infused with cinnamon and vanilla flavors. It is served on ice, and the server said folks drink it with their meal. I couldn't see doing that, but stopping in for a glass on a hot day, or ordering some for dessert? Definitely!
Nacho Taco has already gotten tons of support from our community, and I only see that growing. We do have another taco spot downtown already, Papi's Tacos, but if you look at their menus, you'll see how different they really are. Welcome Nacho Taco!!
