When Leo’s Street Taco Company recently closed after three years in business on Preston Road, it left a considerable void in the Frisco taco scene.
Fortunately, that void has been filled with the recent opening of several new taco spots, including Mezcal Taco, just west of Toyota Stadium, which offers street-style tacos.
Mezcal Taco proudly proclaims “nuestra casa es su casa” or our house is your house. And upon entering this small mom-and-pop spot in a strip center, that is exactly the vibe you get – that this is a small, cozy spot where the food is high-quality, delicious, made from scratch, and a place where the owners treat their customers as family.
True to its name, Mezcal Taco offers 13 varieties of tacos. Four of those offerings are beef, a list highlighted by their asada tacos while two types of chicken tacos, adobado, and tinga, are on the board of fare.
Three different pork tacos are also on their menu, with the al pastor being an outstanding choice.
Other tacos on the menu include panela asada (cheese), nopalitos and two different types of barbacoa (beef and lamb).
Tacos can be ordered on corn or flour tortillas and are served street style with the normal accompaniments of cilantro and onion. One big plus about this new spot is that they are generous with the amount of meat they put in their tacos, which means it only takes two or three to satisfy even the heartiest of appetites.
What else is on the menu?
Tacos aren’t all Mezcal Taco has on its menu. There are also three different “platillos” or combo plates: fajitas, flautas or enchiladas all served up with rice, beans, and tortillas.
Mezcal also serves up burritos or burrito bowls served with choice of meat along with the usual accompaniments of cheese, pico de gallo and sour cream.
Quesadillas, which come in chicken, pork or beef, are also available along with the standard side items of chips and salsa and guacamole.
On my two trips to Mezcal Taco, I sampled a variety of tacos, including the Asada, which might be the best taco on their menu, which is saying a lot. However, the Picadillo, another type of beef taco, is also a must-try.
You also can’t go wrong with either the adobado or tinga chicken tacos, which both have plenty of chicken that is perfectly seasoned.
And as someone who is a huge fan of al pastor, which translates to shepherd style, seeing al pastor tacos on the menu is another highlight of their delicious menu. In fact, Mezcal’s al pastor might rival their asada tacos for the tastiest offerings on their entire menu.
So, the next time you’re craving tacos, which if you’re like me, could really be pretty much anytime, check out Mezcal Taco. You won’t be sorry.
