It sounds like a truck stop diner or fast-food chain but don’t be fooled: Tacos & Tequila combines the cool, hip, modern flair of today’s Mexico City with well-known traditional elements of Mexican style and tops it all off with a Las Vegas flourish. Brushed metal, elaborately worked leather, dark wood tones, bright fabrics, and intricate stained glass combine to transport you instantly to the heart of Mexican culture. The menu, exclusively Mexican dishes, takes “tried and true” to a whole new level.
The Mariachi Brunch Special, on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 3pm, features a live Mariachi band and buy-one-get-one-free Margaritas (definitely worth investigating!). Be sure to confer with your friendly server on the best drink to pair with your dish – it’s been head on good authority that a Pineapple Chipotle Margarita really doesn’t marry well with the tomato-guajillo sauce in the Beef Barbacoa Enchilada, which really needs something more like a crisp, cold Stella Artois. Need some privacy or find the music and hubbub too distracting? Tacos and Tequila features a lovely private dining room at the back of the restaurant for those occasions when discretion is the better part of valor.
