Happy Hour Highs at Lowkey Taco.

Happy Hour Highs at Lowkey Taco.

My coworker, Keri, recently informed me about a restaurant that has been slaying tacos on Tuesdays at $2 a pop. Over the past summer, Keri did me a solid favor and supplied me with tacos from El Burro when I was doing my Rachel Carson Trail Challenge (see post here). When I need tacos, I know I can rely on her. Anyways, Keri told me to let her know a time when I would like to join her and Matt…

When you dip, I dip, we taco dip at St. Clair Social.

When you dip, I dip, we taco dip at St. Clair Social.

If St. Clair Hospital in the South Hills and Social House 7 in Downtown had a baby, you would get the name of the next Pittsburgh taco place I traveled to… St. Clair Social. St. Clair took a leap of faith and opened up during the pandemic. Their drive is to get Pittsburgh social again. The corner bar and restaurant is located at 302 South Saint Clair Street in the Friendship neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Here, we get the name St….

Totopo has a sister and her name is Tocayo.

Totopo has a sister and her name is Tocayo.

Tocayo translates to “namesake” in English. The new restaurant in the Shadyside area of Pittsburgh, Tocayo, shares the same ownership as Totopo in Mount Lebanon -hence the name. But Tocayo has the opportunity to specialize its menu and really achieve a perfect mix between traditional Mexican cuisine and the urban high-end flare. I am happy to announce that one of the menu items they chose to focus on perfecting is none other than tacos. I chose to try out Tocayo…

FALLing for tacos at Los Chiludos.

FALLing for tacos at Los Chiludos.

On a cool, crisp Taco Tuesday, I made my way to Los Chiludos in Canonsburg. Tacos are a necessity all year long, but the thought of a hot taco right off the grill warms my heart this time of year. So you best believe I put on jeans, a leather jacket, and a sweater and took the 25 min drive to 325 Southpointe Blvd. I met up with my friend, Dan, who had Los Chiludos on his taco radar for…

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…

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…

House of 1000 Beers and 4 tacos.

House of 1000 Beers and 4 tacos.

In the beginning of January, I met my friend Steve at House of 1000 Beers for beers and tacos (a dynamic duo). This was my first visit to a House of 1000 Beers. They have two locations, one in New Kensington and the other in Warrendale. I made sure to clarify which one we were going to meet at since I am known for showing up at the wrong bar or location quite often. For instance, La Palapa in Southside…

Denver Part 2: Mountain Biking and Tacos.

Denver Part 2: Mountain Biking and Tacos.

After spending Thanksgiving up in the mountains in Dillon, Colorado with Carolyn, Tyler, and their friends, we made our way back to Wheat Ridge. Wheat Ridge is a town about 15 minutes east of Denver, where Carolyn and Tyler reside. I needed the entire next day to recover from the change in altitude from Dillon to Denver. Dillon is about 9 times above Pittsburgh’s elevation. Once I was back to normal, I was all gung-ho for trying a new sport,…

Giant Effing Tacos at Cafe Nikos

Giant Effing Tacos at Cafe Nikos

On a surprisingly warm Taco Tuesday night in the Burgh, I made my way to Cafe Nikos dressed in a Pens t-shirt and a little black sweater.  I had Nikos on my PGH taco list for quite sometime after having read their 2 tacos for $3 weekly special listed on the banner outside the bar months ago.  I recruited a fellow Mount Washington resident and friend, Jason, for a taco filled night at Nikos located at 212 Shiloh St up…

Expanding my fancy taco horizons at Carmella’s Plates and Pints

Expanding my fancy taco horizons at Carmella’s Plates and Pints

Last Tuesday after another 12.5 hour OR shift, I once again changed out of my scrubs quickly and made my way to my old stomping grounds in Southside.   Tuesday night can typically be a very good night for tacos thanks to alliteration (taco Tuesday!), so I was excited to hit up a place that I’ve been meaning to check out for awhile.  I had Carmella’s Plates and Pints in mind located at 1908 East Carson Street. I met my friend…
