Friday night supper. Quick, friendly service and good food. Relaxed atmosphere and within easy walking distance of most motels. The fry bread style taco shells were just right.

Can't believe a restaurant so delicious is hiding away in a small town. First off the staff is so so sweet. Secondly they serve alcohol which is a plus! We tried the tacos, chimichangas, and guacamole. You can tell its homemade and it is so so good! Finding good Mexican food can be hard but this place is unbelievable. We'll... More

They make homemade taco shells and they let the customers make them as mild or hot as they choose to.

We love Hughie's Tacos! The native american fry bread style taco shells are so unique and delicious. My husband loves the pork & saurkraut, my youngest son loves the massive nachos. Huge portions! You won't leave hungry. Cool environment with beautiful handmade benches and tables, lots of big plants.

Always enjoy Hughie's Tacos in Grand Marais. The fried tacos are my favorite with the corn and beef or chicken. I look forward to stopping on my trips north.

Great taste and variety for a taco place this far north. Reminds me of Tasty Taco chain in Des Moines, Iowa metro area. You can ask for whole kernel corn which adds a special crunch. ( I will order the fish taco w/o the chipotle sauce next time.)
