“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

VT is a great place for a taco fix. Lots of interesting local ingredients used. The elote corn side is an absolute must. Great, friendly service too. And they stay open crazy late on the weekends.

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Delicious innovative combinations and fresh ingredients make for absolutely fabulous tacos. They have something for everyone, gluten free, vegan, meat eaters, etc. They are fast with friendly service, you can get them to go or choose from indoor or outdoor seating. There is only one desert, red velvet cake which completes the "yummy" description of our review!

“Not a Mexican food lover but I loved these!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

These are not your typical tacos. The ingredients are fresh and they compliment one another to make each tacos (hard or soft) a mix of yummy goodness. I went to this place twice during my week visit to Dallas. I tried 11 of the 21? Tacos and the beef and chicken selection are all amazing. Catfish was not so hot. They also had a taco of the day cod fish- yum o! A must visit even if you don't like Mexican food. It's not your typical taco!

“Great Interesting Tacos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

Not a bad joint. Good food, beer and cozy. I like this joint, but it's not your normal sit down restaurant. The tacos are unique, but very fresh. They provide a nice twist to the ordinary taco.

“Best Tacos in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Very reasonable pricing and late night hours too. House margaritas and the outside patio are the perfect end to a workday
