In honor of Taco Tuesday, I’m posting today about a fairly new taco shop. Easton Taco and Rotisserie opened quietly last September, so quietly in fact that I only recently started hearing about this great new restaurant. I visited last week and was pleasantly surprised by the new and clean interior of the unassuming storefront in the West Ward.
I was warmly greeted by the owner, Emilio, and he led me to a table in the artfully decorated room (literally, the walls are covered with artwork from local artists). The menu was much more comprehensive than I expected and I truly had a hard time deciding what to have for lunch.
I ultimately opted for a chopped salad, a steak empanada and a roast pork (pernil) taco especial. The chopped salad was good and the house-made vinaigrette was excellent. The empanada was fresh and very tasty but the roast pork taco was outstanding! I even ordered another one because it was so good!
I liked the fact that they brought cold bottled water to each table for the convenience of self refills. For people like me that drink a lot of water I enjoyed not having to wait for a server to refill my glass. This place is BYOB and they offer “fauxgaritas” where you can add your own tequila.
The owner was extremely pleasant and took the time to introduce himself and talk to me. He specifically mentioned that they like to get to know their customers and foster a relationship. He had no idea who I was, so I introduced myself as a local realtor and we had a very nice conversation about the local real estate market. The only negative I could really mention is that there’s only on street parking available, although there are no meters so that’s a plus.
I definitely plan to go back soon and I look forward to sharing this place with my son & daughter-in-law, who enjoy discovering good Mexican food with me.
