WINGS!!

We've tried several items on the menu, but the favorite seems to be the WINGS! (Which may sound funny at a taco place, but trust us!) The staff is always friendly and makes suggestions of different sauces we haven't tried yet - we've tried a bunch! Fun atmosphere with chalkboard menu on the wall... read more

We just finished our afternoon hike and my 11 yr old nephew wanted tacos. We looked up trip advisor for a place to get tacos. We read about Borrachos and decided to give it a shot. We are so glad that we did. Tacos were great. We ordered the wings and they were great!! The best surprise were the chips.... More

From the outside it doesn't look like much, but Borracho Taco makes some good eats. Definitely the best Mexican type food in the area. Very fast service and reasonable prices. We were very pleasantly surprised.

Tacos were tasty and fresh. Cool, laid back setting with easy service. I would highly recommend to families on the go and travelers who enjoy a good Mexican meal. Try the ADK offerings for a tasty bite.

This burrito restaurant is by far the best in the blue line. Think of it like a Moe's but cheaper and better tasting. Great menu and great food!

We visited Borracho in the late afternoon for a quick bite after our mountain climb. We had the pulled pork and shredded beef tacos, both of which were very good. The pork has a slight BBQ flavor, but they make no pretense about being authentic, and the shredded beef was nicely spiced. They have some beers by the bottle and... More

We stopped in because my son wanted tacos after a mountain climb. The food was good although the taco was a bit too spicy for my little one (he is just 7 - I thought it tasted great). The decor is very funky, the staff very helpful, and the service is quick. I also liked that they had a nice... More

Great place! The taco salad is absolutely outstanding. We also recommend the tacos as well as the chips and salsa.

I have to go here every time I'm in the area. It's Americanized Mexican food, of course, but it's still pretty tasty. I love that you get a ton of meat and topping choices with anything you order. I've found that the grease that drips out of the tacos is mostly water and I don't feel like garbage after eating... More
