One of the things that makes me smile (and there are many) is having a local, good food and fun restaurant to hang out in. We found one! Tacos & Tequila Cantina has all the necessary points to make it a success. Great food, good prices and a very nice ambiance. Recently opened, we jumped in one week night to check it out and were glad we did.
Currently, King's Plaza on Davis Blvd is undergoing a total renovation which does not help a new opening let alone the existing storefronts, but having their opening prior to season was a great way to go. They opened with a smaller menu, changed up a few things and now I believe, they have a great Tex-Mex menu that has something for everyone.
The new owner is Kelly Musico the wife of Aldo of the popular Aldo's Italian Restaurant a few doors down. I believe their partner is Kelly's brother Dave Resch who is also the executive chef. While we did not get the chance to meet Kelly, Aldo did come by our table and spent time talking with us. My only advice was to step up the flavor in the rice. As far as we were concerned, everything else was fabulous.
Walking in the door, you see a nice bar area and plenty of tables throughout the nice decor. This place is comfortable, our server was good and the food is a great take on the traditional Mexican cuisine. While my husband is not a fan of spicy food, he loved this place. We chose four of the T&T Tacos and added rice and beans. Of course, I had to add a margarita (or two) and it was very inexpensive!
They have a long list of taco's with a price range from $3.00 to $3.50.
Plenty of tequila and margarita's to choose from.
Both traditional and non-traditional starters and entrees.
Folks, this is a place you need to try. It's fun and the food is quite tasty. Get there now before the season begins because I predict it will be packed with a line outside sooner than later.
I'm thinking we will hit up their Happy Hour this week and check it out! Have a great week everyone, I know I will.
