Taco Time in #BurlON

Posted June 27, 2019by Kelly Harris

If you’re like us, any day is a good day for tacos. We are lucky here in #BurlON to have so many places offering tacos on their menus and with so many different varieties. We’ve highlighted 10 of the best places to get tacos  – it’s Taco Time! (not in any specific order)

Burro
A Mexican restaurant specializing in tacos, visit Burro, located at 480 Brant Street South. They offer a great variety such as curry cauliflower, bourbon chicken and our new fave the Spicy Brussel Sprout taco (but don’t let the word spicy fool you!)

BeerTown
BeerTown in north Burlington (Appleby and Upper Middle) has great options for tacos. They offer tiny tuna tacos on their starter menu, as well as a 2 piece fish taco option.  They offer a 2 piece fish taco option for a main.  Good news if you’re a vegan – they also offer vegan tacos; battered meatless chick’n with all the fixins’ (2 and 3 piece option).

5 West Brewpub
Located in north Burlington this is one place that you definitely want to try. Featuring great food, their own beer (plus other beer as well but always good to keep it local), and lots of live music. They have 2 different types of tacos on their menu – fish tacos and a smokehouse taco which allows you to choose between pork, brisket or chicken. Pairs nicely with their Blonde Ale so we’ve been told!

Jackson’s Landing
If fish tacos are your fave, then you have to try the fish tacos at Jackson’s Landing. They are our go-to and taste even better on their roof top patio in the summer time! Doesn’t everything taste better on a patio in the summer time?  Jackson’s Landing is located on the southeast corner of Appleby Line and New Street.  

Jake’s Grill & Oyster House
Can’t get enough of fish tacos? Then visit Jake’s Grill & Oyster House at 950 Walkers Line, just south of the QEW. They feature a Taco Tuesday from 4 pm-close each week. Great deals on fish and shrimp tacos plus a fresh feature taco each week. 

Pepperwood Bistro
How good does a shrimp taco sound? Well Pepperwood Bistro has a Baja shrimp taco on their menu with a mango aioli that sounds dee-lish!

Brant Pump & Patio
Brant Pump & Patio is another downtown spot for great tacos. Give their southwest fish tacos a try, you won’t be disappointed!

Familia Fine Foods
Familia Fine Foods is a warm and inviting family run business located off Harvester Road that is open Mon-Fri and sometimes on weekends for special events. Their food is fresh, made from scratch and plentiful. Try their delicious tacos for lunch – they offer a selection of pork, beef, chicken or vegetarian.  

The Coop Wicked Chicken
Visit The Coop Wicked Chicken for their taco selection. They offer four varieties of tacos on their menu including the spicy Nashville taco and their catfish taco. 

50 Pesos
One of our favourite Food Trucks now offers take-out service during the week from their main kitchen, at 4055 Harvester Road. Everything is made from scratch and they have gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options.  Try their deep fried avocado tacos, the black bean tacos or the pina fish tacos to name a few.  

So many great choices and this is just a start! Get out there and get eating! #TacoTime
