Steel City’s Steel Cactus for National Taco Day

Steel City’s Steel Cactus for National Taco Day

This year, heavy rain attempted to take over some of my favorite taco centered events like the Pittsburgh Taco Festival, Cinco de Mayo, and National Taco Day.  It has not failed to make an appearance at each one of these occasions.  On Thursday October 4th, for National Taco Day, it rained like crazy.   Heavy downpours and floods led to many road closures in the South Hills.  As a result, my Frisbee game was cancelled.   A few of my league friends…

Question: Where can you find tacos, a beach, and Ultimate Frisbee all in one place?

Question: Where can you find tacos, a beach, and Ultimate Frisbee all in one place?

Answer:  Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. This Spring, I took a leap of faith and joined a Pittsburgh’s club level Ultimate Frisbee team called I-79.  I was recruited by my casual Ultimate Frisbee friends to play on this club team.  At first I did not know how I would fit another night of frisbee into my very hectic work-life schedule, but I decided that improving my game and traveling to new places for frisbee tournaments with friends along my side would be…

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,…

Speakeasy Tacos in Pittsburgh’s North Side

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…

New Tacos from Columbus to Pittsburgh at Condado Taqueria

New Tacos from Columbus to Pittsburgh at Condado Taqueria

Although I missed the free tacos at the grand opening of Condado Taqueria in the Cultural District of Pittsburgh on March 14th this year, I knew I had to visit soon.  There has been a lot of build up for this new restaurant, along with quite the following in Columbus, OH, where they have two other locations. I had a few friends of mine who already rave about this place, specifically for the reasonable prices and unbelievable queso so I…

Pittsburgh Tacos on New Years!

Pittsburgh Tacos on New Years!

Last tacos of 2016 at Round Corner Cantina New Years Eve of 2016 turned out to be one of my favorites of all time. I woke up Saturday morning without any plans made for the day. The only thing I knew was that I would be having leftovers for lunch and tacos somewhere for dinner. After watching a few episodes of Parks and Recreation, I pulled out a list of breweries around the Pittsburgh area that I wanted to try. As soon as I…

Back to Pittsburgh Tacos at Totopo!

Back to Pittsburgh Tacos at Totopo!

Totopo Tacos! Last week, I chose to try out Totopo on 660 Washington Road, Pittsburgh in Mount Lebanon’s uptown area after hearing fantastic reviews from friends.  I had never heard of Totopo before, and I had no idea what to expect.  I didn’t ask friends what was good or not at Totopo, I just went in cold (but of course leaning towards tacos!).  Now, after my first visit I have so much to share with you guys and I don’t…
