Biking, Incline, Tacos, Hills, Tacos – My Taco Tuesday in Pittsburgh

Biking, Incline, Tacos, Hills, Tacos – My Taco Tuesday in Pittsburgh

Inclined To Get Tacos During Pittsburgh’s Heat Wave Last Tuesday towards the end of Pittsburgh’s heat wave, I ventured out on my bicycle during the 89 degree day. Since my car was unavailable that morning, I figured it would be prime time (minus the heat) to finally take my bike on the incline. Since I am still new to the roads on Mount Washington, I figure the safest way to get to the Cultural District would be to take the…

Bachelorette Party Tacos at Pirata in Downtown Pittsburgh

Bachelorette Party Tacos at Pirata in Downtown Pittsburgh

Weekend of Tacos All Over Pittsburgh Last weekend I managed to get tacos twice during two exciting events. First, were tacos at The Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium’s Zoobrew on Friday, while checking out the animals and sampling some beer. Second was at Pirata for a bachelorette party dinner on Saturday. This post will cover the Pirata tacos since the Pittsburgh Zoo tacos were a pleasant, but infrequent, treat there. However, the tacos at Pirata are here to stay. For the…

Heavenly Pittsburgh Tacos at Taco Diablo in Mt Lebanon

Heavenly Pittsburgh Tacos at Taco Diablo in Mt Lebanon

Last week in the midst of a very busy time getting ready for two back-to-back out of state weekend trips to New York and Ohio, I needed some quick and healthy dinners to get me through the chaos.  When I think of fast service tacos my mind defaults to Las Palmas, Edgar’s Best Tacos, Doce Taqueria, Bea Taco Town, and El Burro. However, time and location are important factors to consider too (especially around rush hour). Since I was planning…

The Pittsburgh Regatta and All Star Tacos at Casa Reyna

The Pittsburgh Regatta and All Star Tacos at Casa Reyna

A Packed Pittsburgh Weekend: Work, Regatta, Bike and Tacos!   A few weekends ago, during all the Pittsburgh Regatta festivities, I had to do my time and work the weekend. Not only did I have to be at work by 6:30am on a Saturday, but I had to get up even earlier than usual to load my bicycle in my car while most other yinzers were snuggled up in bed, or having the worst drunk sleep ever from a Friday…

Taco Tuesday in Pittsburgh replaces Wing Night in Dormont A few weeks ago when the standard crew could not make it to Jamison’s wing night, I took the opportunity to visit another spot that has a taco Tuesday special. I first discovered James Street Gastropub & Speakeasy had tacos when I went there for drinks prior to attending the Incline’s Ultimate Food Truck Bracket Contest to support and try Las Chicas tacos (which I have been craving lately). Listed on…

Pork Belly and Pancake Pittsburgh Tacos at Bakn!

Taco Blogging Above Pittsburgh in Mt Washington I am very excited to announce that I am all moved into my new place in Mount Washington.  I am currently sitting outside on my giant covered porch on a kitchen chair, sipping on a glass of wine, listening to Atlas Genius’ Pandora  station with a giant step ladder as my laptop table all while blogging away about my most recent taco experience.  Although this may look awfully strange, the set up is…

Helping out Pittsburgh Tacos in The Incline’s Ultimate Food Truck Bracket!

Helping out Pittsburgh Tacos in The Incline’s Ultimate Food Truck Bracket!

Pittsburgh online news site The Incline really got my attention lately with their Ultimate Pittsburgh Food Truck Bracket, pitting food trucks from around the area in a NCAA style, reader voted competition.  Obviously, the bracket dedicated entirely to tacos is what REALLY got my attention. The Final Four in the bracket came down to Southside BBQ, Las Chicas, Hott Dawgz and Sugar and Spice Ice Cream Truck. To make the final four voting more interesting, The Incline also held a small…

Pints, Pens, Pints on Penn, All You Can Eat Tacos in Pittsburgh!

Pints, Pens, Pints on Penn, All You Can Eat Tacos in Pittsburgh!

Last Tuesday night right before the Penguins versus Senators game during game 6 the Eastern Conference Finals, a group of us decided we should fuel up on tacos to get us ready for the big game. Now I usually go with the group to Jamison’s on West Liberty in Dormont for FREE wings with beer every Tuesday, but once in awhile we will switch it up for tacos. It is unfortunate this wing special falls on #TacoTuesdays, but I make up…

More Pittsburgh Brewery Tacos at Draai Laag Brewing

More Pittsburgh Brewery Tacos at Draai Laag Brewing

Wild Beers by Design, What About Tacos? Over the past few months, Nate and I have made frequent visits to Draai Laag Brewing located at 501 East Ohio Street in Millvale, PA.  This brewery has a pub-style taproom that offers a rotating selection of sour or farmhouse ale beers. These beers may start as regular Belgian beers, but in French and Belgian styles they’re introduced to native and/or unique floras (aka yeasts) that greatly change the beers. In ‘normal’ brewing…

Big Bacon Tacos – Enjoying Pittsburgh Pork Belly Tacos at Insurrection AleWorks

Big Bacon Tacos – Enjoying Pittsburgh Pork Belly Tacos at Insurrection AleWorks

Work, Nap, Run, Taco Time On a Friday night after work, a nap and a mile run I built up an appetite for tacos. I knew Nate and I would be getting tacos for dinner, but it was a last minute decision to go to Insurrection AleWorks.  We had received word from a friend that they were having tacos on special this weekend.  Since they do not have tacos on their everyday menu (once every 2-3 weeks tacos will be…
