The Original El Taco Restaurant Review:

About the restaurant: Bright colors evoking the Mexican aesthetic enliven the casual, comfortable space, which has a screened-in street-side patio. The Original El Taco is famous for its lengthy tequila list, which may be sampled in flights.

Food & Drinks: The extensive menu has a lot to offer. Tex-Mex selections include fajitas, and there's a wide variety of enchiladas and tacos, including those with smoked chicken, fried chicken, fried fish, steak and pork carnitas. The side of grilled Mexican corn (elote) is fit to be the featured dish for a vegetarian. End the meal with churros or ice cream. The small wine list has a few good choices, but beer is best with this food, especially a Mexican brew such as Dos Equis; a gluten-free Mexican beer is available, too.
