Inspired by the beach culture of coastal California, Mexico, Uruguay and Brazil, bartaco combines healthy, upscale street food with a coastal vibe in a relaxed environment. The minimalistic decor is light and breezy, with the air of a rustic beach resort. The cuisine is rooted in Mexican tradition but pulls from a broad palate of bold, spicy flavors from the Mediterranean, Asia and beyond. The tacos are healthier versions of old-country favorites, filled with fish, fresh vegetables, spit-roasted chicken, and slow-cooked pork to name a few. There are Asian-influenced salads, grilled corn, signature fusion rice bowls, and seasonal market specials on the creative menu. The bartaco beverage menu is just as carefully crafted, and includes bottled Mexican Coca-Cola and hand-pressed fruit sodas. Over 40 tequilas - all 100% agave - have been hand-picked. Our award-winning inspired and refreshing cocktail selections are made with only artisanal spirits and freshly-squeezed juices and are featured along with traditional margaritas, mojitos and caipirinhas. Whether dining with family or enjoying a night out with friends, all will savor the undeniable energy that is the bartaco experience.

Fun atmosphere

Great food. We had the large taco platter. We had a nice table right by the water. It had a really fun atmosphere. I felt like we were on vacation and not in portchester.

The place was just bustling. Great dj. Food and drinks highly predicatable but always fun. Margaritas great, like especially the guacamole and the oyster and duck tacos. Churros are a great desert.

I took my cousins to Bartaco and we had a great experience. It was a beautiful night out on the deck. It has a very lively young bar crowd, so it was a little loud but we enjoyed the festive atmosphere. It's an interactive experience, they have their own special way for you to place orders, or to call the... More

I've been eating at Bartaco for years. As a Mexican-American, in my opinion it is very authentic. I always get the trays which cone in small or large. The small comes with 6 tacos and the large with 9. Choice of tacos include pork, steak, chicken, fish or chorizo. You can get all the same or mix and match. The... More

I have been twice to bar taco with my husband and young son. The food is great and the are caring to children that come in, yet still a fun happening experience. The Ice cream is rest as well. Only draw back is that it does tend to get very busy on the weekends but over all a winner

I went to Bartaco yesterday with my family and the experience was fantastic! Food was great, our server was on point and there was tons of parking. Our family took advantage of the small trays and ordered some additional sides of grilled corn and plantains because they were delicious! Definitely expect Tapas style portions - it is great for sharing... More

Went on a Tuesday night and it was super crowded but the drinks at the bar were great so we didn't mind! The tacos are super tiny so we ordered lots and they were all different and tasty! The sides we had were fresh and yummy as well. Desert was great too - just make sure you have lots of... More

Bartaco has terrific food and is always extremely busy on the weekends. I would have given this establishment a 5 rating but I do feel that their food is a little pricey. Great place to take kids and there is outside dining when the weather permits. Also, the servers are always attentive and cheerful.

Perfect weather for sitting on the deck and enjoying their wonderful food and amazing margaritas. They don't get much better. Food is delicious, service is great which is incredible given the crowds.

I've been on a search for the "best" tacos, for sometime now. Initially, the experience was found one place loved it and then subsequent trials of other places would fail or not meet expectations? That is no longer the case. It's amazing the quality of taco's, especially in the NY area. Chorizo, Pollo or Pescado are all on offer and... More
