Taco Place
$$
“This isn't your typical Mexican food. A little twist on everything, but so delicious. We call it "Nouveau Mexican". If the weather is nice, opt to sit on the giant patio upstairs. Try the garden guac, or guac with rattlesnake chorizo! Great margs too! Always fun, whether eating or just grabbing some drinks. (A serious tequila lounge opens up downstairs in the evening).”
