Fresh ingredients are the foundation of the made-from-scratch food that is prepared everyday at Taco Bar and once you taste their food, you’ll be able to tell for yourself!

Pico de Gallo Salsa + Guacamole & Tortilla Chips – Freshly made with Haas avocados, served with corn tortilla chips

I really like the simplicity of the guacamole. It was lemony without other overpowering flavors. The corn tortilla chips and salsa were great, too! A  successful trio if you ask me!

Sopa de Zanahoria – Hearty, creamy carrot soup with Mexican cream

Taco Bar has become known by locals to have awesome soups that change daily. The carrot soup was on special during my Friday visit. It was delicious!

Quesadilla con Pollo – grilled melted cheese and chicken quesadillas with your choice of corn or flour tortillas served with guacamole and sour cream

I like how the quesadillas are prepared as one folded over tortilla without cutting them into triangles. They were very yummy! My fiance says that these are the best quesadillas he has ever had!

First and foremost, Taco Bar is a “Taqueria” and the foundation of a well-made taco is the tortilla. Taco Bar’s tortillas are made from a masa of preservative free corn. Simply put, this tortilla, when loaded with any of Taco Bar’s large list of genius fillings, will translate into pure deliciousness.

I tried the Tacos de Camaron Enchilado (not pictured) – 3 open-face spicy grilled shrimp tacos (served in corn tortillas) sautéed with thinly sliced onions over melted Manchego style cheese and topped with our red enchilada sauce. The manchego cheese goes wonderfully with the shrimp and red sauce, great combination of flavors.

Torta de Milanesa – Mexican style sandwich made on a large crusty hoagie roll stuffed with a deep fried chicken cutlet, melted manchego style cheese, avocado wedges, mashed bean spread, onions, tomatoes, Mexican cream and served with a side of chipotle salsa.

I’ve never had this type of sandwich before! I usually don’t think of sandwiches when I think about Mexican food but I’m definitely glad that I tried it.

Enchiladas Verdes – 3 rolled corn tortillas stuffed with shredded chicken breast and covered with our signature hot green enchilada sauce composed of tomatillos, Serrano peppers and topped with hot melted cheese and thinly sliced onions… Served bubbling hot!

The verde sauce had just enough of a kick too it without being overbearing. I would have liked the chicken to be a bit more seasoned but it could just be the nature of the dish. Next time I look forward to trying the Enchiladas de Mole also known as the Grandad of the Enchilada Clan! Made with a rich Mole (“MOLE”-lay) sauce.

The Almond Mousse was an interesting dessert, I like the texture. Although the winner for me was the rice pudding:
