Tacos and beer. What a fantastic, beautiful combination. With a wall touting the craft beers they’re pouring and a gorgeous menu filled with Mexican eats, we had our fingers crossed for a long time that Tacos & Beer would come out with a vegan-friendly menu.
We kinda got our wish.
If you’re looking for tacos (or just Mexican food) near The Strip, Tacos & Beer has your lovely vegan tummies covered. The menu features the vegan staples like chips and salsa (the best in town, if you ask us. And that tomatillo salsa? Dreamy.) They’ve also got veganized burritos and salads (just ask ’em to hold the dairy items).
But, what we dig and cross the 15 for are the tacos. They have three tacos that are vegan — a beer battered avocado, pineapple and black bean and jackfruit.
Which ones to get? It if it’s your first time, order one of each. At under $4 a pop, you can fill up on three and still not break your budget. Our top pick is the jackfruit taco. Think jackfruit with chipotle, tamarindo and onion, and topped with cilantro and pickled red onions. The other two aren’t our picks (the beer battered needs a little kick and the pineapple/black bean combo doesn’t do it for us) … but hey, different strokes, right?
Bonus: Every Tuesday, Tacos & Beer celebrates tacos with Taco Techno and from 10 p.m. until the wee hours of the morning, tacos are 50 percent off.
