Atmosphere and Décor : 4/5 There is not doubt the Taco Chelo is totally ‘grammable. I love the unique space and theme. However, there is way more outdoor seating and not enough indoor space.
Value : 5/5 Very affordable . I think for what you get the price is worth it.
Service: 5/5 service is great. The employees are helpful and they gave me new suggestions of what to try since I was not a fan of the veggie or fish taco.
Quality of food: 3/5 So quality is good but the taste was not. Fresh ingredients however, the flavors were not satisfying to me.
Happy hour/ Specials: 5/5 I would definitely return for the happy hour. Select cocktails are only $5 and draft beers are $2 off.
Menu Variety: 5/5 The menu is inclusive offering vegetarian and gluten free options. Additionally there is good selection of food on the menu at an affordable price.
Recommendations: Do not try the fish and veggie tacos. They were not good. I tried them twice. The first week Taco Chelo opened and then again this past weekend. I don’t eat dairy, beef, chicken or pork. So the menu is very limiting for someone with my similar diet. When you go tag #hopeshabits and let me know if enjoyed the food.
Don’ts: Don’t be biased.
Do’s: Try everything that you can.
What I had: Fish taco and veggie taco sans dairy.
Honestly I probably will not be back. Only because the menu offerings for my diet are simply not good. However, I support local , the story and people behind Taco Chelo. If the service and people are good I will always recommend to try out a restaurant at least once. Maybe there is something on the menu that you will love. I do know they are open late. Which is great for the late night munchies downtown.
When you make the trip make sure you tell them #hopeshabits sent you.
