Hoodwinked - This is a taco bar not a brewery
Mar 2020
I don't like bait and switch. I thought I was going to a brewery. Instead, this is a taco bar that brews beer on sight. There is a huge difference between the two. Five beers are on the menu, and one of them sold out.

Since I came here expecting a brewery and got a taco bar, I'm rating it two stars. However, keep reading. I actually think many people will absolutely love this place.

Think of this little area on Main St. as a food hall connected by an extensive outdoor gravel area for families, couples and friends. Twisted Root Burger is on one side. By the Horns Taco Stand is on the other side. The brewery and bar are at the back of the taco stand with garage door windows to sell to people out on the gravel outdoor area. An ice cream shop, which was closed on Sunday, completes the food hall.

The whole area is very cool and enjoyable. The brewery is not a brewery, which is why I came. Two stars for the brewery. If you want a real brewery walk a block down the street to Dirty Jobs. That's a brewery.

Best Street Tacos in Dallas/Ft. Worth
Nov 2019
What a great place !! A little hidden gem with a unique and fun atmosphere. We were greeted and served by Manny. What a great guy ! It was a cold day, so he turned on the outdoor heaters for us and found a cozy spot on the patio for us and our fur baby. We had never eaten their tacos before, so we decided to just order a few. Oh my goodness, the best street tacos we have ever eaten ! A must to try ! Can not wait to go back. Thanks all !

Burgers & Tacos
Sep 2019
I thought the food was good. They have a linked restaurants with both Twisted Root Burgers and Tacos & Avocados. I had a burger and it was good. You order everything separate (i.e. it doesn't come with sides). The burger and sides were good.

There are options for eating. We ate outside. There is plenty of dining both in and out. There is plenty of parking as well. Overall I thought this was a good meal and would go back.

Coming back!
Sep 2019
In love with this place! Great atmosphere and nice staff. Will be coming back for sure.

Got two tacos, nice flavors and size; was full by the end. Didn’t take too long to get food. Flight of beer was reasonably priced.

Go Somewhere Else - Seriously
Jul 2019 • Couples
I really wanted to like this place. So here's my take.

Walking in from the back side where there is a parking lot, you walk straight into the bar area, dark, dreary and loud. There's more people at the bar than in the restaurant side but for the most part the place is empty.

We order and the first thing to come to our table is chips and guacamole. Hands down the "WORST" guacamole I've had in my life, and I'm well past 50 and we eat lots of Mexican food! It was so hard I couldn't scoop any of it onto a chip. The chips are hard as a rock, seasoned with a bunch of the orangey stuff and a lot of them are stuck together. I took the guacamole back and told them it was so hard we couldn't eat it, I didn't say that it was the most bland tasteless guac I've ever had. Really bad start and it goes downhill from here.

I ordered the pork & pineapple taco and a shrimp taco. My shrimp taco that comes on a soft tortilla. Literally half of that tortilla was hard like it had been placed on the grill, and the other end of the same tortilla was soft! How do you do that? The shrimp taco comes with cabbage slaw, it should have been called a cabbage taco, there were 2 or 3 little tasteless shrimp, I mean no taste at all, and other than that, there was a ton of purple cabbage that was big chunks, very inconsistent, could be much better if it was shredded thinner and they used less. It's suppose to come with cilantro, didn't see it or taste it and there was very little pineapple to speak of. Who wants more cabbage than the pineapple. The red cabbage is just hard and dry.The pork and pineapple taco, had a decent amount of pork but again too much cabbage, didn't taste the queso or the cilantro and again very little pineapple. We ate some of it, and left and had to go somewhere else to eat.

You are trusting your business with high school kids preparing your food. There was only 1 other table there eating. I think the only way this place will survive is because of the bar, it won't be because of the food. It's tasteless and very inconsistent in the prep and delivery of the food items.

A huge waste of time and money and we most definitely won't be back. Do yourself a for, find another taco place.

This is a GREAT space
May 2019 • Business
I lucked onto this space and glad I did. By the Horns is a great little craft brewery with a connected taco restaurant. You can get full service in the restaurant or sitting at the bar. The beer selection is excellent and the staff is really cool. The tacos are far better than your ordinary taco. They have several options and they pile it on. It is all very reasonably priced. In the same little complex they have an ice cream place and another restaurant. In the middle of these businesses is a gazebo, sand volleyball. I'll be back the next time that I'm in the area.

Good beer and food
Jun 2019 • Solo
Had the IPA and a T&A bowl with chicken and Jalapeño Ranch. IPA had grapefruit hop presence and followings nice bitter bite, for those who like that. Salad bowl had a perfectly ripe avocado half and the Jalapeño Ranch added just a touch of heat. Fried Brussels are a nice touch, for the Brussels lovers out there. Chicken was just rotisserie, nothing exciting. Next time I’ll have them add on the pork. Nice outside space with corrugated metal gazebo.

Nice outdoor space

Nice patio, not much food selection. Tacos were okay. But a neat place to just hang out and have a drink.

Great for beer but skip the menu...Food is disappointing
May 2019 • Friends
We had brisket tacos, crispy chicken tacos,crispy pork tacos, chips and salsa...Best part of the meal were sadly the chips...All of the meat tasted the same...None of the meat was crispy but very bland and tasted just blah.Just a small postion of flavorless meat on a tortilla rolled up. Salsa was nothing special..Cool place to hang out with friends for a beer but that's it. Lots of better options for food within walking distance of this place.

Great find. Went out for a drive around Mansfield and found By the Horns Brewery. Had a great pint of beer along with their tacos. I'm not much one for tacos but they were really good. Neat atmosphere & the staff is very friendly & helpful.
