This small but mighty location had fantastic eggplant tacos & guac. The margaritas were amazing!!! The outdoor back porch was ok for dining, not perfect if your picky. I did not mind. The rustic enclosed area. The tortillas are corn, homemade& yummy! Great job Backyard...Tacos!! Oh the yuca fries were delicious!More

Small tasty tacos served in a small but efficient operation in this resort town. Backyard Tacos is a hit with us because everything in the restaurant is right in front of you, clean and fresh. We love the brisket taco. The drinks are weak and...quite uning, especiallyMore

This place is worth looking for it. Tucked away on Winter St in historic district of Edgartown. EVERTHING on the menu is good. Take out or squeeze yourself into one of the limited tables, but enjoy some really tasty food

I had the fish taco then the chicken taco, both delicious. It’s a small place but they do have a small “backyard” patio as well as a very small front deck. I had a beer from their limited beer/wine list. They also offer mixed drinks...& I hear their margaritas are very good. The atmosphere is kind of “dive bar” which I happen to love. Prices are very reasonable (especially considering it’s Edgartown!) and they are open late at night which is very convenient.More

My wife and I enjoyed our tacos and yuca fries at an outdoor table at BYT in our September 2019 visit. The yuca fries with cashew cheese spread on top like in lines were particularly crispy and soft in the middle. Our mushroom taco, and...chickpea (falafel-like) tacos were tasty.More

We used to love this place, but after 2 back to back poor experiences we had to leave a review. The food is decent for sure, but its slow, and the staff feels disinterested in actually 'serving' guests. This will be our last time here,...such a shame.More

Used to love this place but the service has gotten so bad that it isn’t worth coming back to. We waited 45 minutes in an empty restaurant only to receive “nachos” that were a pile of cold chips with a few kernels of corn scattered...on them. When we mentioned this to the staff we were met with an incredibly rude response. Will not be returning.More

Hungover and dismissive teenage staff took a half hour to produce two mediocre tacos in an empty restaurant with no line. Dont waste your money or time.

Fellow reviewers led us to select the Backyard Taco for a casual dinner in Edgartown. We were disappointed and hope it just happened to be an off-night? All the fabulous reviews on the margaritas prompted me to eagerly anticipate a terrific drink .. mine tasted...very "peachy" and watery which is not my preferred flavoring for a margarita. My husband's RumRita was undrinkable .. staff were gracious about exchanging it for a Mexican beer (not his beer preference but limited options). We had the short rib taco (very good!), fish taco (good), and the falafel taco (good). Agree with other reviewers the homemade tortillas were fantastic. Sat in the backyard which worked well as it was relatively cool outside .. I imagine it's a sweatbox out there when there's no breeze. Wanted to love this place but for the reasons above, it fell a bit flat.More

Had short rib tacos, others in our group had chicken, cauliflower, and others. Everyone loved the food. The Margarita's were excellent too. Not many seats inside .... or really in the backyard. I have a feeling this place is hoppin' late with drinks, but was...not there for that. Ordered food to go a few nights later.More
