Bartaco Asheville

As taco lovers, it was natural for us to get drawn into this place.  Visiting in mid-afternoon on a Tuesday, it was easy to find metered parking spot a street behind this restaurant.

Inside was open & refreshing.  We liked the rustic designs and decors with coastal feeling.  Indoor space felt like we were outdoors with super high ceiling & ceiling windows with lots of sun ray coming in.  They do also have really nice outdoor dining area with stone fireplace.

We started our meal with a ‘bartaco margarita’ and ‘grapefruit ginger agua fresca’.  Both freshly-squeezed & delicious.  (Sorry, the margarita is in the shade in the picture!)

Taco order was ‘baja fish, pork belly, sesame ribeye & shrimp banh mi’. (from left to right), and a ‘pork tamale’.  They were nice snack size which was great because you want to try all the tacos and have room for dessert from their great selection!  Each item was unique and very enjoyable to taste.  We’ll be back to try more!


For dessert, no hesitation to have picked ‘churros with chocolate sauce’.  As you can see in the picture, it was mouth-watering good.
