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.

We ate here because of the reviews. I was nervous choosing a restaurant because one of the people with us owns a well rated restaurant himself. None of us were disappointed. It doesn't matter what you order. Just pick a number and it will be good. The margarita was just OK, but this place is about the food and the... More

The place is crowded, with a line to order at a counter and then a wait to get your food. This is not tex-mex tacos. The line gives you a chance to decide what unique tacos to try. The #7 (Cuban), #17 (Ahi Poke, raw), #14 (Shrimp and grits) are all excellent and unique. The red curry coconut queso and... More

Stopped here about 1:30 and there was still a long line. Food was worth it-I had the rotisserie chicken taco and queso.. both were amazing. Only downside was the construction going on upstairs that caused ceiling particles to fall onto the indoor dining space. I'll try it another time when there's none of that. Parking is sparse so be patient.... More

I initially stumbled upon Velvet Taco during my research for a good taco joint in Dallas. After seeing pictures and highly rated reviews I knew I had to incorporate it into my dining itinerary. It may be out... More
