Best Lookin’ Tacos go to Strange Roots Experimental Ales

Best Lookin’ Tacos go to Strange Roots Experimental Ales

I recently took a trip to Millvale, one of my favorite Pittsburgh neighborhoods, for Taco Tuesday. With a new goal to downsize my apartment and save money on rent, Millvale and my current location of Mount Washington were the top picks on my list. Millvale is booming with breweries and restaurants, and a Baby Loves Tacos will be appearing there soon. And with the bike trail nearby, Millvale is my ultimate hobby oasis. During the TacoMania events, I tried some…

You haven’t blogged about PGH Taco Truck yet?

You haven’t blogged about PGH Taco Truck yet?

Yes. That was the question everyone was asking as I sat in the Leaning Cask Brewery with my pen, notebook, and a basket of tacos from PGH Taco Truck. Earlier in the day, I was over at Steve’s house in Springdale and Steve said “Oh, we missed PGH Taco Truck at Inner Groove yesterday.” I sadly looked to the floor. The first time I had tacos from PGH Taco Truck was at the Pittsburgh Taco festival two years ago and…

New Year, New Tacos, and Stronger Me.

New Year, New Tacos, and Stronger Me.

Remember when I wrote a post in the beginning of 2019 about how I was going to crush it finding the best tacos in Pittsburgh? I began the year by publishing my taco ranking system and working on data entry for ranking each Pittsburgh taco I have had the pleasure of eating. I was on a roll until something very big took precedence over everything else. I am now at a point where I am ready to share with my…

T and T Cantina stands for…..

T and T Cantina stands for…..

Tacos and Tequila! All the stars lined up on the day after Labor Day. It was a Tuesday. The weather was ever so pleasant. It was Happy Hour. I wanted tacos nearby. I had hungry company. On that magical eve, my Mount Washington neighbor, Ben, joined me for tacos at T and T Cantina, located on the side patio adjacent to Coughlin’s Law. As you may recall from my post about one year ago, I was not a huge fan…

I missed out on the horchata at California Taco Shop

I missed out on the horchata at California Taco Shop

On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, I met up with two coworkers, Melissa and Robert, for some late lunch. Robert, Melissa, and I have met up quite frequently over the past few months for lunches and walks and I always look forward to it. For this meet up, Robert suggested the California Taco Shop and I was obviously okay with that choice. California Taco Shop is located at 890 Butler St in Etna. After lunch, I had plans to attend a…

Margs, Tacos, and Trivia at 202 Hometown Tacos

Margs, Tacos, and Trivia at 202 Hometown Tacos

Hey, have you tried the new taco place in Bellevue?? I have been asked that question four times over the last few months so I finally checked out 202 Hometown Tacos. I saw on Instagram that 202 Hometown has event specials like Tuesday karaoke and Thursday trivia where you have the chance of winning free tacos and margs. It did not take me long to decide that I would check out the trivia night and save the people of Bellevue’s…

Independence Day Tacos at Mindful Brewing.

Independence Day Tacos at Mindful Brewing.

This year, I wanted to spend the Fourth of July up in Mount Washington. My neighbors and I have some prime real estate up there for the fireworks. Before I would settle up in the Mount for the afternoon, Steve and I took a quick lunch trip to Mindful Brewing. We knew we could not be out very long if we wanted to have a parking spot back in Mount Washington for the firework celebration. Good thing the Fourth of…

Bar, lounge, dining room, or patio tacos at Calavera Tap + Taco

Bar, lounge, dining room, or patio tacos at Calavera Tap + Taco

UPDATE: This restaurant has closed. It did not make it very long. In the middle of a hot summer week, I met my coworker, Cynthia, for lunch at a new taco spot in Warrendale called Calavera Tap + Taco. Coming to Calavera mid-week allowed us to easily pick seating anywhere at the restaurant. This included the indoor dining area next to the kitchen and wall decorations, a full bar and lounge adjacent to the 30 plus tequilas and mezcals, or…

BA-CO for a Taco or 2 or 3

BA-CO for a Taco or 2 or 3

About two weeks before a major surgery, I went on a taco feast frenzy. The next stop on my list was to BA-CO, a restaurant in rotation at the Smallman Galley in the Strip District. This New American Restaurant serves artisan style tacos from a passionate chef, Tim Dominick, who has had many inspirations from his travels like California street tacos, Southern BBQ, and Latin flare. He has combined all of these styles to create the restaurant BA-CO and lay…

A Little Speed Bump.

A Little Speed Bump.

There are not too many things that take priority over tacos, but I am facing something that has taken over the majority of my time.  I am still able to eat tacos  and will be posting periodically because the taco blog makes me happy.  Please keep eating tacos with or without my guidance and I can’t wait to continue my search for the best tacos in the ‘Burgh.
