This is such a long overdue post, it’s not even funny. I’ve been talking about going to TacoLu for the purposes of a blog post for months now. I wanted to make sure I went during the day so I could get good natural light photos, but I just rarely make it out to the Beach during the day. I always go at night & forget my camera. & the iPhone pictures just do not do it justice. TacoLu’s food is vibrant & beautiful. It deserves photos that show those qualities & do the talking.

Then I finally made it happen. & I remembered to bring my camera. Double win.

I can’t go to TacoLu without ordering a Skinny Saint:

This skinny margarita would make Bethenny Frankel cry tears of bliss because it’s that good. It has an excellent balance of sweetness & tart without being too extreme on either side. Perfect.

Fat kid alert – I also can’t go without ordering queso:

Why is white queso better than yellow queso? I don’t know, but it always is… hands down, no questions.

Some of the best items at TacoLu aren’t on the menu, so always make sure to ask your server about the daily specials. They often feature various fish tacos, lobster tacos, the Carne Royale (carne asada with brie? yes please!), pork belly tacos… The list goes on.

But there’s still some gems on the menu… Like the Bangin’ Shrimp Taco:

The Carnitas:

& my personal favorite, the $10 Taco (but it’s only $4.99):

Filet mignon on a taco? Mmmm heaven.

I really cannot say enough good things about TacoLu. Yes, I know, the parking situation sucks, but it’s a lot better now that there is valet. Yes, the service used to be slow, but in my past few visits, it’s gotten remarkably better & I had fantastic service on this particular visit. Yes, it’s crowded. But it’s crowed for a reason – because it’s that good (& it’s affordable – did I mention that?). 

Keep it up, Lu!

  1. I’m very jealous that you have a place like this and all I have is tijuana flats. Not that I dislike tijuana. Their queso and chips is possibly my favorite (yum). But I wish they had more variety too.
    Please let’s add this to our list of places we must visit together. 🙂

  2. I dream of Tacolu bangin shrimp tacos, and then travel to Sweet by Holly for their mini cup-cakes…always a good day!
