NanaTaco is a little noisy and crowded and sometimes the music is too loud. That said, we go anyway. We love the food, the salsa bar, the friendly staff and comfortable vibe. It's extremely relaxed and family friendly. The burritos are as big as your head.

Such a great, casual place. They have all sorts of great "meats" and "dirty meats" to create your own taco. Chicken livers, fried oysters, tuna, pork belly, garlic beef.......... Good margaritas too! We will be back! Our favorite on this visit were the chicken liver tacos. They come with caramelized onions then you can add ingredients from their salsa/sauce bar. Mmmmmmmm!

Being from Texas, we know a few things about great tacos. Nana Taco was great. It more like making your own whatever meets your fancy. Lots of meat choices: pork cheek, duck, lamb, roasted chicken, etc. and even fried oysters. Portions are generous and prices are terrific. The salsa bar has many different home-made condiments, sides and dressings. In addition, it has a great selection of beers. The folks are wonderful and keep the line moving and tables cleaned. Not your cookie-cutter Chipotle.

I had the Torta (sandwich) with the Chili Rubbed Pork Butt. It was moist & tasty & the roll they serve it on was fresh & crust was crispy. Choice of beans on the side as well as rice. Plenty of food for the money & fun salsa bar. Others at the table had burritos & chicken mole which was very authentic. Plenty of choices on the menu. We will go back our next trip to Durham.

Not a bad meal, just nothing special. Decent salsa bar and good meat options. They give you a good amount of food for the price.
