Honestly, you could do Taco Tuesday every day of the week.

Enter Tacos del Cartel, a feast for your stomach and your senses. Take in the dramatic decor of flowers, chandeliers and skulls - the restaurant is inspired by the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) tradition - while you savor authentic Mexican cuisine to the tune of tacos with protein ranging from pastor to tofu, snacks like cartelote and choriqueso, as well as bowls and burritos. With oh-so Instagram ready neon signage on the walls, you'll have much to delight in while you sip on smoky mezcal margaritas. 

For days that end in por qué.

Tacos del Cartel hosts the first-ever 5 de Mayo House Fest TOMORROW, Wed, May 5, at the Al Copeland Meadow Concert Stage at Lafreniere Park from 3 - 10 p.m. Your ticket includes authentic Mexican cuisine, live music, face painting, DJs, stage shows and a margarita, tequila and mezcal masterclass.
