everyone’s been talking about bartaco. the chastain location just opened near my office so I finally had a chance to try it for happy hour! it was hopping, like crazy busy for a wednesday. the first thing I noticed was the amazing patio and the funky, coastal-themed interior decor. the next thing was obviously, my margarita.
my go-to taco choice is fish and bartaco has two choices: the baja and the veracruz. I went with the baja, the fried version and it did not disappoint. we also had the grilled corn on the cob with cojita cheese, which was really yummy but did require some work in terms of de-kernaling.
the cocktail menu was the most exciting part for me – I mean the name is bar + taco so you better expect a decent bar. we chose pear sangria and margaritas, which were both really good.
bottom line: the ambiance is the star of the show. bartaco is a great spot for happy hour with the girls or date night. our inside table was pretty loud so next time, I’d shoot for an outside patio spot!
