Praise From The Press
While the tacos are the obvious stars, don’t count out the other menu items. The rice bowls, for instance, make for a very nice pairing with the tacos, adding a bit of heft to your lunch or dinner without weighing you down. And to forgo the chips and guacamole prior to the main course would be a crime; the guacamole is fresh, hearty, and flavorful, with just enough onion and tomato to keep the avocado lively.
Replacing one of our favorite places to watch the game, Don Taco Tequila Bar seems to fill in the gaps where Flat Iron could not. There are bars both upstairs and downstairs, and on warmer evenings there is outdoor seating. This casual location is an ideal place for smaller bites and tacos to your heart’s content. There are plenty to choose from, but we couldn’t turn away from the Mexican Short Rib, Buffalo Chicken, Banh Mi Pork, and Fried Avocado. The cocktails don’t have an outrageous price tag. The jalapeno-infused vodka Sweet Heat cocktail was hard to pass up, but the Fresco was certainly worth it.
I had to give their restaurant a try for lunch today. It was awesome. I ordered the guacamole with chips as an appetizer. The guac was great and the chips were fresh and crisp. I ordered the lunch course next. The tacos come in a exceptional variety of flavors. I tried the pork belly and pomegranate glazed skirt steak. The tacos were delicious. They are served with a corn tortilla as opposed to a flour tortilla. I also had a margarita with my lunch which was extremely tasty. I’d have to say it is the best in Old Town.
