Voodoo tacos cast a spell on me.

Voodoo tacos cast a spell on me.

A few weeks ago, I had the unusual treat of a free Thursday afternoon so I took advantage of this by biking with my friend, Sean.  Typically, my Thursday nights are reserved for my Ultimate Frisbee league, but this week the league was on a temporary on hold between seasons.  With only one Thursday evening to spare before summer Frisbee commenced, Sean and I decided to make our way to Voodoo Brewery by bicycle. I introduced Sean to a wonderful…

I’m Staying at the Franklin Innnn….all the tacos lovers are invited innnn.

After my Saint Patrick’s day adventure in Philly, I went back to getting tacos in the Burgh.  My initial taco partner in crime, Michelle, has been dying to take me to a place that she really likes in the North Hills.  Michelle has been tagged in almost every visit at Patron Mexican Grill (see my favorite dollar taco blog post here!)  and she shares a heavy love for tacos too.  I was very excited to meet her, Andy (her husband),…

Philly Tacos Part 4 – The Gang goes to Dollar Taco Night

Philly Tacos Part 4 – The Gang goes to Dollar Taco Night

For Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations, I made plans well in advance to travel to Philadelphia with my friend Carolyn (and her pupper Bella) to see our friends Julia and Taylor who both live in the Philly area.  As a refresher, Carolyn, Taylor, and I travel A LOT together and you will find their names mentioned in the Austin and California taco posts.  Carolyn is the queso connoisseur in the group, while Taylor enjoys critiquing and comparing side dishes of Mexican…

One Step Closer to a Free Taco at Doce Taqueria

One Step Closer to a Free Taco at Doce Taqueria

I have not talked about my love for Doce Taqueria‘s tacos in a long time.  Doce Taqueria is one of the very first places I went to when I started sharing my love for tacos in the blog.  Since then, I have probably recommended Doce Taqueria the most to friends looking for the best tacos in the Burgh.   Doce is near the top of my list due to their mouth watering, nontraditional, new age carnitas and americano beef tacos, the prices,…

Jacki AND Baby Loves Tacos – Our Visit to Pittsburgh’s Newest Taco Spot

Jacki AND Baby Loves Tacos – Our Visit to Pittsburgh’s Newest Taco Spot

After many failed attempts, I finally made it to Baby Loves Tacos at 4508 Liberty Avenue in one of my favorite Pittsburgh neighborhoods, Bloomfield.  Baby Loves Tacos officially opened January 6th and one of my best friends, Alexis, beat me to the tacos.  Granted she lives less than 2 minutes away from this taco pumping establishment. I have heard so many positive reviews from Alexis and others online about Baby Loves Tacos.  I even browsed their Instagram and Facebook page…

Fat Taco Tuesday? Part 2 of NOLA Taco Travels

Fat Taco Tuesday? Part 2 of NOLA Taco Travels

Second Stop- The Rum House Caribbean Taqueria Later on Friday, Alexis and I decided it was time to attempt to conquer the New Orleans public transportation system.  Alexis may disagree with me but I thought we did pretty good navigating our way from the French Quarter to the Lower Garden District, especially with the construction, street car closures, and Friday rush hour traffic.  After one street car ride, one bus transfer, and one last street car ride, and a tasteful…

BBQ Pittsburgh Tacos at Smoke in Lawrenceville

In case you did not know this, I am a big planner. I plan where I want to get tacos usually a few days in advance based on work schedule, activities I have set to do on my days off and type of transportation.  About a week in advance, I planned on getting tacos with Nate after work on a Saturday.  I knew I had a busy week ahead of me with work, ultimate frisbee, self defense practice, biking, cooking…

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…

Taco Travels Again – To New England and NYC!

Taco Travels Again – To New England and NYC!

Over the Fourth of July weekend, Nate and I took a 7 hour drive to Connecticut.  Now I was under the impression that the drive would be hideously longer than that, but our destination was in Norwalk, CT, very close to New York City.  In fact, from the beach in Norwalk, we could just see Long Island in the distance. We went to the specific town of Norwalk because Nate lived there for 3 years post graduation from college. We…

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…
