Tacos are great. But tacos al carbon? Even greater. Cooked over fire, Taco Boys’ exhibition of flame-kissed tacos, vampiros, burritos, and quesadillas is nothing short of impressive. Varieties run the gamut from standbys like carne asada, pollo, pastor, and barbacoa to tripa, and cabeza. And you can dress up your order at the fully-stocked salsa bar. This fast-casual taco spot has two Valley locations. The latest, Taco Boys Tap Room, is just steps away from ASU campus. Tacos and beer? Say less.
The gist: The Valley certainly has its fair share of taquerias. But like tacos, there’s always room for more; we’re looking at you, Taco Boys.
The food: Much of what’s available on the Taco Boys’ compact menu has been kissed by their piping-hot charcoal grill. Expect authentic Mexican fare like tripa, cabeza, and barbacoa, to name a few, at the newest outpost of Taco Boy’s in Tempe—just like the Downtown Phoenix original. And whatever you do, don’t skip the vampiros.
