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.

Great drinks and quick eats

Taco sampler is fun for a small crowd. I go here often before a show at The Cap, as do many others. Great vibe, though the short tables can be a little uncomfortable (sit on a bench and not a seat).

I really wanted to give this restaurant a good rating but received very poor service and the tacos are $2.50 for two bites. The meat inside the tacos are very fresh and enjoyable but as stated, are little expensive. Our server was hard to find and it wasn't even very busy (Sunday evening). I may go back to this restaurant... More

MRK, I wanted to reach out to you and sincerely apologize for the poor service that you received at our restaurant on Sunday. I cant express enough that the guest experience is of the utmost importance to us. We pride ourselves on fresh food made from scratch, hand made craft cocktails and amazing service. i am very disappointed in myself... More

The bartender was wonderful. She was very attentitive and seemed like she enjoyed providing great service. The margarita was one of the best I've ever had. I got 3 tacos, they were pretty good- kind of small but I guess that is the concept of it. A little on the pricier side but worth it for the unique atmosphere and... More

AshWednesday - feeling the depths of winter. Some friends of ours invited them to accompany them to this no reservation restaurant. What a great idea. We were seated immediately and ordered an outlet of trays of tacos: sesame beef, spicy chorizo, chicken, baja fish, pork belly, duck. Each taco is about three bites and utterly delicious. Deserts include churro and... More

The food is very good and slightly unusual. Better to go to in warm weather to eat outdoors. Waiters are very friendly and accommodating.

Tucked away down by the waterfront, this establishment is both lively and laid back. Good food and friendly service are this restaurants key ingredients. Super kid friendly and when the weather is fair, the garage style wall/doors open wide lending a backyard gathering feel.

Great variations of Tacos. Guacamole and home made chips are good starters. Their drinks menu are extensive, more than their food menu. Great place to hang out in the summer afternoon/evening sitting on the back deck above the river, if you can get a table. It can get crowded but service is great.

This restaurant does exactly what it says on the tin and it does it really well. My girlfriend and I joined a large group, and although it took a long time to sit down, as there were 18 of us, the drinks were excellent and freshly squeezed limes were a nice touch. The food was superb, probably the best tacos... More

Bar Taco caters to a young crowd and it can be a bit noisy inside. Outdoor seating in summer is a must. Noted for their margaritas and tacos, Bar Taco's mixed drinks taste a bit watered down but who's noticing in this fun atmosphere.
