I'm a local to the area, and this is my favorite restaurant in town. I always try to come on my days off to enjoy their great food. Fast service, great food, and a cheap price. What more could you want?

Stopped in by myself while others were out doing other activities. I had a wonderful pork taco and I have to say it is one of the best tacos I've ever had. They make their own taco shells which are nothing like anything I've ever had it's a wheat taco shell and it's almost kind of buttery. The ambience is... More

We loved this restaurant. Very casual. You order like a fast food place and they bring your choices out to your table. We loved the decor. Nothing in this place is boring. Really interesting stuff to look at while you are waiting... and they serve beer. You can choose to sit in a very open spot in front of the... More

Looking for something different in Grand Marais, we landed at Hughie's Taco House. Glad we did. Very friendly staff taking our order. Helpful on what was included in each menu item including a friendly note that we might be ordering too much food (we did). Quick service. It is a walkup and order, sit and they bring the food out....

We stopped here for some taco's and beer after a day of hiking and it was great! Fast and fresh food, cold beer, friendly staff and good prices. Very helpful explaining everything, letting us know options and made good suggestions. We can't wait to go back.

Stopped here for lunch after visiting Grand Marais and had the Puffy Taco. I'm from Kentucky and now I'm jonesing for the puffy taco's. I don't know how they do it but it's worth every penny. If you like food from South of the Border you have to give this place a try. Fabulous!!

Hughie's Taco House makes Hughie's Tacos. They are different than your usual Mexi-raunt fare. Puffed shells, great fillings, amazing beans and rice, spicy if you want it and seriously some of the greatest service in a walk up window restaurant ever - better than many "order at the table" places. Decor is cool western stuff and photos, with lots to... More

We almost missed coming here because they are closed on Mondays, but I'm SO glad we were able to make it in. These are AMAZING tacos, you must go. The taco shells are wonderful, and make sure you get all of the toppings. You will not be disappointed.

We ran across this place while on a walk. I googled it and the reviews were good so we tried it. We were not disappointed. They are known for their homemade soft shell tacos. So, we had to try them. They are amazing. Don't miss this place when you are in Grand Marais.
