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

I think the people who run this should go try Wyatt's in Lake Placid for an idea of what a great burrito is like. Unfortunately Barracho just isn't putting out a quality product. Extra for rice and beans in a burrito? Extra for hot sauce in a burrito? You end up paying $10 for a bland tasteless burrito. Step it... More

Took the family here for a quick lunch while visiting our oldest son at Paul Smith's College. Food was fresh, homemade, and well-prepared. Can't go wrong. Large menu selection as well

Went there last week. Our food was just OK. But we ordered a cheese quesadilla for our 2 yr. old and was taken aback at the charge of $8,00. It only had cheese and tortilla nothing else. a bit much! Plus you order from the counter.

After being a loyal customer throughout the past few months. We visited borracho to find over an average of $2.00 raise in prices. From tacos to burritos. Unfortunately this will likely be our last visit.

Fast service, great food made with what you like. Inexpensive and they have a great selection of Mexican beer. Open very late and friendly service.

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.
