Street tacos (two bites) in a variety of meat or vegetarian options. We had falafel, chicken in lettuce wraps, and fish and pork in tortillas just to change it up. Falafel was very spicy but all were very tasty. We also had the small guacamole appetizer. Very tasty meal but limited menu.

There are some restaurants that have a menu going on for pages and pages. Bartaco shows what you can do with a small menu if the food is just that good. The street tacos can be ordered a la carte. The carnitas and short rib tacos were just phenomenal. Good vegetarian options are available too. I didn't try the cauliflower taco but my associate did and raved about it.

If you want a REAL margarita, made only with fresh fruit, this is your place as well.

Bar Taco serves super-fresh ingredients in both their drinks and food. Super-friendly staff (and a lot of them!), who always make sure you've been helped. Their margaritas are to die for, made with fresh-squeezed lime juice...such a difference it makes! The guacamole is amazing, and my favorite taco rolls are the Pork Belly and Sesame Ribeye. Low carb tip: You can get the tacos wrapped in lettuce vs. a tortilla to save some calories (for the margarita...which I have them sub the agave for a packet of Splenda)! Great bar atmosphere - definitely a to-be-seen crowd!

If you are not sure what you want to eat, Bartaco is perfect - small plates with lots of options and the food and service are always excellent!

The food is very good. However, don't be fooled when ordering. One would think a couple of tapas are filling --- definitely not - you will be hungry soon. Every order could fit in the palm of my hand but very tasty. We had the cauliflower, fish taco, crispy shrimp, falafel,plantains & coffee for 2 of us. Also we all shared the LG Trio- which was chips & 3 types of salsas. Now one would think this should be sufficient- but we were still hungry as the portions were tiny. The service was slow but friendly. The restrooms need to be upgraded- has a shabby look. Also be aware of the parking app that is needed to park at the Reston Town Center- which is a real pain. On the weekends it is free- or I would not have gone there.
