We passed Taco Taco each time we walked from our hotel into town, so obviously we had to try it. I wish it had been a little warmer so we could have enjoyed the really awesome deck space, but the interior is also cool. There...More

Although prices especially for beer are slightly higher then around, the food is amazing. In great atmosphere, you get large servings at a great price. Can only recommend!

We (4 adults and 5 teens) loved this little gem. We were wandering through the town being tourists and stopped in for lunch. Everything was tasty and moderately priced. Service was quick.

We were looking for a spot for a quick, light lunch and fortunately arrived and ordered our meals just before a tour group descended upon the place. Food was good and freshly prepared. Service was decent under the circumstances...the tour group swamped them.

Often all the guide book noise is not lived up to by an establishment, not so here. The tacos are great, a wide range of craft beers, the prices are right. Look, just go and eat there, you can't miss.

Visited twice (early dinner, late lunch) and had all the tacos. It’s nice that they can make all the tacos vegetarian (swap meat protein for portobello mushrooms). They have really tasty chips and a flavourful hot sauce that comes with the tacos. Loved their margarita...More
