Tacos a Go-Go is a quirky place to grab a quick taco before or after a few drinks. The décor is as kitschy-cool as it is traditional, with Mexican luchadores, Catrinas and virgencitas sharing space on the walls. Authentic Mexican taco, burrito and tamale recipes amaze the taste buds, while the fresh salsas will have you raving. They’re open early for the breakfast crowd, most of who go for the potato, egg and cheese or the chorizo, egg and cheese tacos. Order sangria, mimosas or bloody Marys by the pitcher for the most value, or try their Mexican hot chocolate on a cold day.
