When the weekend is over and Monday starts up the workweek grind, there's not much that can get you amped about the next five days ahead.
Unless, of course, you consider those two words guaranteed to bring a smile to anyone's face: Taco Tuesday. Just the word "taco," by itself, is a delight. But pair "taco" with a day of the week and what you have is a day of cheap, fast, delicious eats worth celebrating.
Whether you're looking for chicken, fish, beef, pork, or veggie, there's a South Florida eatery where you can find them come Taco Tuesday. Each week we'll highlight a different restaurant serving some super taco savings, or just some really amazing meat, bean, and vegetable-stuffed tortillas.
Come Tuesday, Tacocraft celebrates the art of the taco with a great deal: $2 tacos, $4 beers (both draught and bottle), and $6 specialty Espolón margaritas.
Unlike most restaurants that limit the type of taco you can purchase on Taco Tuesday, Tacocraft doesn't discriminate. You can order up several of the menu's most popular items — including the braised chicken with 24-hour adobo marinated chicken, queso fresco, guacamole, pica de gallo, and cilantro-lime crema; the popular crispy shredded pork with adobo- and chili-rubbed pork, cotija cheese, charred pineapple, crema, and salsa verde; and the prime ground beef taco with lettuce, tomato, sour cream, and cheddar cheese on a flour tortilla — available all day for the $2 apiece deal.
Each are made with the same artisan-style ingredients as next door neighbor (and sister concept) Rok:Brgr. That includes everything from the specialty sourced meats and imported cheese, to the hand-formed corn tortillas made on-premise each day.
While you're there, pair them with any of the eatery's classic Mexican dishes, including homemade guacamole, yuca fritas, or street-style empanadas. The restaurant is open daily at 11:30 a.m., and features indoor and outdoor seating, right in the heart of the downtown area.
Tacocraft is located 204 SW 2nd Street, Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-463-2003, or visit tacocraft.com.
