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

since our first visit last August we have been to the Adirondacks 3 times. Everytime we stop into Borracho Taco. We love the cherry habanero sauce and the chimichangas are great especially with adding in bacon... I have found the service to be quick and friendly, the quality of the food great,the price very reasonable, and beer is served. They... More

Even though saranac lake is in the Adirondacks the food was just unacceptable. Dirty and slimmy but the food was ok just because it was so greasy kinda tasted good but not going back unless I want a heart attack

The kickoff to Saranac Lake's winter carnival began last night (with fireworks!), and town was crazy busy. I ate dinner at Borracho Taco with my family. Dispite the numerous customers the service was fabulous, and the food was delicious. We got a seat as soon as our food was ready, it seems that the cook time and seating were planned... More

I had a delicious taco salad. Rice, beans and corn on lettuce in a fried taco shell. Topped it with Ranch dressing. It was perfect. My husband thought the decor was great. I thought it a bit pricey but I would go back again. Good to have another option in SL. The gal at the counter was very pleasant.

Good food and some of the best wings in town. Always quick and usually friendly. And it's opened late!!! Take out is done in under 10 minutes. And they have fried pickles and fried cheesecake!

A friend and I went into Dew Drop's Grille and Pizzeria on a busy Thursday night after the arts festival. It looked good with brick oven pizza and beer specials. We were given a choice of sitting inside or out on the deck and chose the latter which overlooked the river. It was a nice atmosphere! Our server took our... More
