Superb experience ... even with the 1o minute wait in line. As we arrived, parking is a challenge, and the line to order was out the door. The menu is very broad and excellent; chicken, veggie, pork, beef and fish. You can also personalize your order from the menu.

Great food, quick, cool vibe. Can't ask for much more! We tried all 3 of the vegetarian taco options, #4-Nashville Hot Tofu, #5-Fried Paneer, & #6-Falafel. The falafel was by far my favorite, only because the other 2 were a bit spicy for me. My husband loved those ones though!

A friend introduced me to this awesome joint. It's open past midnight and a great place to grab a bite after a night of bar hopping. I love the patio seating. The tacos are delicious! They have two vegetarian options - falafel taco and paneer(Indian cheese) taco. Both are finger licking good! The falafel taco, by default, comes in a... More

As a vegetarian and a foodie, the thought of lunch is never far from my mind. This place - though it looks sketchy, they have way too much waste (read: not environmentally friendly) and the atmosphere is not fantastic - has some delicious vegetarian options that will keep the grumblies at bay! I highly recommend the crispy tofu, the spicy... More

Had a great lunch here today. I had the Cuban pig and the flank steak taco. Be sure to add hot sauce! Easy in and out.

The food was fantastic. I had the Cuban pig. The Tots and egg were a great side while the red velvet was a perfect way to finish it off. Not a lot of parking though.

Dallas has a TON of great food, and Mexican food a plenty. These tacos are good. I repeat good. But... They're not entering my top 10 taco spots in Dallas, much less top 10 restaurants. Sorry guys and gals.

Great place to get some simple tacos while in Dallas. You won't spend a lot but you will get a lot of flavor. Grab a beer and have fun meeting people at the community tables. Shrimp and grits taco was great.

I was taken to Velvet Taco for a quick lunch, there were a lot of people there, but the line moved fast. I ordered 3 tacos and they were all amazing! The price is good, not expensive and the quality of the products they use is also fresh.
