Had really good tacos and guac and chips. It was both good and fast - important when you have a 4 year old with you. The place was interestingly decorated - and also had outdoor seating. Worth the visit.

We had nachos and drinks at the bar. I thought the nachos were made with orange gooey cheese but otherwise delicious. Service was quick

Stopped here for a quick bite with the wife. Nachos were really good! Saved us a couple dollars by not upselling us on a drink. Didn't have a dinner plate so comment on those.

Is Taco Escobarr dog friendly? We hope to celebrate my son's birthday there tomorrow evening but will have my daughter's 3 month old Lab, Charlie. Charlie is very well behaved.
