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...More

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...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...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,...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...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...More

The guys are terrific. What fun. Great music, the guys are rocking out in the back making handmade tortillas. That is what sets this taco place different and better than all the rest and that is saying a lot since I live in LA. You...More
