“This is bastard Tex-Mex at its best!”


“… A cool new hangout to fill your cravings for quick Mexican street food.”

Houston Chronicle

“It’s very Austin, with a bit of art-smart San Antonio thrown in…”

Texas Monthly’s “Tacos You Must Eat Before You Die”

Lamb Barbacoa

“A giant bust of Carmen Miranda with orange-slice earrings and a pineapple and bananas on her head perches over the door. Inside, you can ogle a mural featuring a devil-horned and -tailed bathing beauty from the Mexican movie Que lindo cha cha cha. The name and whimsical decor might suggest that Tacos A Go-Go is not serious about its wares. But this cantina-like Midtown storefront takes the trouble to stock Mexican sodas and beers, and its barbacoa taco – a heaping helping of luscious shredded lamb topped with lettuce and diced tomatoes – is some mighty serious eating.”

Today is a good day for Tacos!
