The new restaurant located in the old Greek Isles space on Bland Street offers delicious food, more than 60 tequilas and a great atmosphere.
For grub, Hot Taco has a menu full of traditional cantina classics, such as carnitas, taquitos and enchiladas. But it also has specialty dishes like the house-made chorizo for the empanadas con chorizo.
I had the opportunity to sample their menu and I can tell you that this isn’t your everyday TexMex — the food is as original as it comes. High fives from this picky eater.
In addition to the massive food menu, you’ll find a diverse drink menu, from frozen drinks to more elaborate cocktails like “The Mailu,” which features Espolon Tequila, pineapple and coconut cream, or The “Bel-Air” which features tequila, muddled jalapenos and cucumbers.
Make sure to stop by tomorrow to cure your Sunday Funday hangover! #grandopening #tequilacuresall #minimondays A photo posted by Hot Taco (@hottacoclt) on
Hot Taco is super inviting with an eclectic décor, from a lucha libre mask collection to the Espolon Tequila Mural.
(Fun fact: The rooster in the mural has a name. It’s Ramon.)
