As it’s namesake suggests, the restaurant has an extensive taco and margarita offering. Street taco plates come with a variety of proteins, including wood-grilled ancho chile chicken, carne asada, beer-battered shrimp, and carnitas, among many others.

In addition to tacos, the menu features a variety of other classic Mexican dishes, including antojitos (appetizers) like elotes (grilled corn), taquitos, guacamole, and queso al forno, as well as burritos, quesadillas, enchiladas, and a variety of specials.
