THE KITCHEN STAFF at the recently opened Condado Tacos (1227 N. High Street in the former Circus location) shouldn’t be referred to as “chefs,” but as “artists” or “creative food designers.” They masterfully combine fresh local ingredients to come up with the most delicious creations you can imagine. And they manage to do so at Mom & Pop prices.
Condado delivers! BBQ brisket, pork, chorizo and steak, all prepared fresh for your appetite. There are also vegan and gluten-free options. The grilled portabello mushroom makes for quite a tasty taco. And the variety of toppings and sauces! There isn’t anything we’ve found that we don’t absolutely love. The happy hour prices are incredibly low, but really, the prices are low any time. How they can deliver such greatness at such reasonable prices is beyond us, but we aren’t complaining. Regular prices of $3 for a taco and $6 for a house margarita can’t be beat. However, during happy hour, margaritas drop to $3 and you can knock a dollar off of each taco. Once again, we don’t know how they do it, but we love it! The extensive tequila and margarita menu nearly deserves a round of applause. Truly commendable.
Every server and bartender has been selected for a reason: they are damn good at their job. From the second you walk in the door, you feel welcomed by the host or hostess. They are smiling and having fun. Good music fills the air, and the place just feels welcoming. The renovations are impeccable.The seating is comfortable. And again, the food is some of the best around.
We have enjoyed Condado several times over the short time is has been open. We would happily give Condado our traditional four thumbs up, but we need our thumbs to hold our tacos together.
