Went early on a sunny late afternoon. and sat outside which made the date. Service was fast and friendly. Margaritas and chips very good. But the food? The lobster tacos my wife and I ordered had a generous portion of very wet lobster that was bland. If the menu hadn't said "curry shrimp" I would not have know there was... More

Well it was a beautiful night and we sat by the water which added to the great night. The server was friendly and the food which comes out very quick was very good. They serve all kinds of tacos andou can order them over and over without a long wait. The sesame steak tacos I thought were the best. Loved... More

I've been hearing about Bartaco for months now. I have been dying to try it and was not disappointed. We started with the gaspacho which was very good and the shrimp cerviche which was a little too tart for me but very fresh. We ordered the chefs tray, an assortment of tacos selected by the chef and some salads. The... More

I actually go to the one in Westport CT rather frequently. Great setting on the river with an outdoor deck to eat or have some cocktails on a nice day or night. The food is great. Have never been disappointed. The suck or sesame sirloin rice bowl or tiny taco are amazing. They make a killer spicy margarita too. Extra... More

Bar Taco is an extremely popular (especially during the summer!) waterfront restaurant in downtown Port Chester. Parking requires patience and the wait to sit down and get your food can be significant. However, if you call ahead about a half hour, they will take your name and you'll probably get seated pretty quickly when you arrive. If you get there... More

I went to celebrated my friends birthday. The parking was cumbersome. The service was excellent. I couldn't grasp what type of food it was. Had a Central American style yet tiny influence of Japanese food, hence the brown rice and chopsticks. We found Sesame ribeye very salty and rice was crunchy. We had 2 orders same problem. Chicken tacos were... More

Depending on which site you use, people whine about how noisy it is. Well.....OF COURSE its noisy as it is an excellent establishment that everyone wants to go to. In brief, this bar - Mexican food place is a great spot for people of all ages, families, parties...whatever. Despite a somewhat lengthy wait, the food was not only fresh but... More

I have been to Bar Taco in Port Chester four times. The atmosphere is festive and upbeat so no complaints there. Yes, the wait is ridiculous on the weekend but what do you expect for a hip, popular waterfront venue during the summer? Other reviews claim the food is pricey. I am not sure I agree. My issue this evening... More

They told us to be an hour away, it turned out to be 20 minutes. We ordered drinks ciparinna and margarita both were excellent. A salad six tacos later and another round of drinks and we were very happy. Our waitresses Sophia and Ally were excellent. We will be back

Went on a Friday night - the place was hopping. Big, lively bar croud. Food was very interesting and good. I recommend it - but be ready for croud and noise. There were small kids there too, but more a happy hour, stylish crowd. Call ahead to get your name on the list or be prepared to wait.
