A recent food trend is reliving your elementary school’s cafeteria theme of Taco Tuesday, and honestly I’m all about it. Yes, tacos deserve their own day and yes, Tuesdays could use a little more fun. Here is my list of places to head out and celebrate Taco Tuesday in whichever way you see fit.

Taco Tuesday Date Night

Carta Azul Taqueria & Ceviche Bar

If you’re looking to class it up on Taco Tuesday with your sweetheart look no further than Carta Azul. If you buy 2 tacos you get the third for free and all of their tacos come with guacamole, a huge plus!

Cheap and Boozy Taco Tuesday


Choose between a beef chicken or fish taco. They serve these $1 tacos form 4pm until 2am, hey we’re not saying they’re the best but they are freaking cheap. They also have beer deals on Tuesdays, a bucket of 6 rolling rocks is $10 and a corona bucket it $12.

Casual, Authentic and BYOB

Tortilleria Mexicana Los Hermanos

If you’re out in Brooklyn on a Tuesday and that taco craving hits, you have to head to Tortellria Mexicana Los Hermanos and get some tacos (or a quesadilla). It’s a tortilla factory by day and by night they are serving up those tortillas whichever way you want. Bring a six-pack and grab a table inside the factory, you won’t be disappointed.

Did Monday and Tuesday hit you hard? Maybe you and the girls need to have a night out early this week? Check out Oficina Latina and you will be sure to let all your worries float away. Stepping inside of this restaurant you will be instantly transported to a relaxing South American vacation, complete with delicious mojitos, caipirhinhas, pina coladas and margaritas (all made to order)!

Late Night fusion Taco

Goa Taco

Right outta Smorgasbord, Goa Taco is satisfying every late night craving! These are super sized tacos made in a fried Indian paratha bread, both crispy and delicate they will amaze you. Find these unique tacos at their pop-up on the LES or back at Smorgasbord!

Best Spicy Margarita   

Barrio Chino

If you really are craving the margarita more than the taco, Barrio Chino is the spot. Although there is always a wait on the weekends, maybe Tuesday will bring you more luck at getting in here. You have to order one of their jalapeño margaritas, and maybe even add on some fresh grapefruit juice with that. Go with a small group because it is tight in there but you will get drunk and you will have delicious food. If you’ve feeling like straying from the tacos, get the Enchiladas Verdes!
