I missed El Paso food so much while I was in Orlando that I immediately went to try the taco place that I’ve had on my list for a while…Boozy Tacos and Tap.
We were greeted immediately as we talked in and I like the fact that they had 3 sections, one for fast casual for the workers looking to grab a quick bite with walk up counter service, and a section for full service, and an outdoor patio. We sat in the quick service area but the bartender quickly came around and took our order.
It was on a Monday and they had $4 frozen alcoholic drinks. I got the mango strawberry painkiller and believe me it dulled all the aches and pain from walking everywhere at the theme parks. It was super yummy and super strong with 2 different types of rum. Definitely recommend.
My friend got 3 crispy ground beef tacos and they asked if she wanted lettuce and tomatoes which she did. They are massive! They also remind me of Taco Bell tacos but on a grander scale. Very delicious with the medium salsa they had at the table.
I got the “fancy” tacos with Arrachera, Ahi Tuna, and Artichoke. It was an A+ day I guess. Lol Anyhoo, I would recommend you get the sauces on the side since they came drenched in them, except for the Arrachera, it had nothing so you can put your own salsa on it. The meat was tender and the cojita cheese brought it up a notch in texture and flavor.
The Ahi Tuna was ok, since I couldn’t taste anything beyond the super sweet honey like sauce they liberally poured over it. It wasn’t fishy or frozen so the fish is legit.
The artichoke was the biggest surprise…I ordered it as a lark and honestly between the other 2 huge tacos and one of my friend’s crunchy tacos, I was super full, but I tried it and it was heavenly. The creaminess of the artichoke and the zing of the sauce and crunch of the cabbage was perfectly juxtaposed. This was a taco elevated to gourmet.
Best of all, the entire meal was LESS THAN $20.
This is a great cheap date night with a nice atmosphere and stiff drinks. Of course it has to be over the devil mountain in the Northeast. Hopefully they’ll expand quickly…but a little birdie told me Horizon will be next.
