El Taco Tequila Taqueria opened Monday at 14 E. Cota Street, the former home of Square One. El Taco is not your typical Mexican restaurant. Owner Matthew Chrestenson tells me that their focus is being a street vendor-style taqueria. That means they don’t offer rice & beans or chips & salsa. El Taco is all about serving authentic tasty tacos. Think of El Taco Tequila Taqueria as a food truck without wheels that also happens to have a full bar.
El Taco offers quality meats, sauces, cheeses and vegetables for their tacos, all served on a 5″ diameter in-house-made tortilla which is larger than your traditional street taco. The full bar offers everything you would expect including 8-9 choices of agua fresca cocktails (fresh fruit, organic agave nectar and water).
In the very near future El Taco will be offering fresh fish brought in daily for their tacos. Plans also include to introduce a line of exotic tacos including rattlesnake, alligator, buffalo and elk.
Hours are 11am-close 7 days a week. For more information call 845-6226 or visit eltacotequila.com.
