Having heard good things about Dirty Taco, we couldn’t pass up a chance for an early dinner at the Dirty Taco location in Woodbury Commons. We are so glad we went. Their website says, “Dirty Taco is a hybrid of a Los Angeles taco truck and Miami liquor stand…An interesting twist to a classic Mexican style, Dirty Taco incorporates Asian elements into their menu.” Although we don’t know how they came to this mix, it really works! It’s a trendy taqueria, with a very large selection of tequilas, margaritas and tacos. The menu seems to have something for everyone, from “street tacos,” with great sides, to salads, and vegan and veggie options!
The decor is fun! Make sure to look at the ceiling ! Located in the Woodbury Commons shopping center, there is plenty of parking with two accessible spaces directly in front of the restaurant.
Entering was easy, the street-level double doors were wide open on this warm August evening. As a matter of fact, the entire restaurant was “open” with garage door type windows that open completely for a true indoor/outdoor experience. We chose to sit on the covered, outdoor brick patio, where there are picnic style tables and benches. I noticed that they are prepared for the cooler weather that will inevitably get here, with several outdoor heaters waiting on the sidelines. The outside is easily accessible from inside, or from the parking lot. If you can’t do the step up from the parking lot, there is a small incline to accommodate all. Indoor seating consists of both high and low tables, banquettes and a full-height bar. There is reasonable space between tables.
Our server, Gina, couldn’t have been nicer. Being “first-timers,” we had many questions, which she happily answered. We finally decided on a variety of tacos, (Kung Pao Chicken, Chimichurri, Ahi Tuna, and Buffalo Shrimp) with a side of brussel sprouts. Everything was delicious! I almost forgot to mention their variety of tequilas and margaritas. My better half loved his “Sweet and Smokey!” The service was pleasant and professional. It was an unexpected relaxing and fun meal! We look forward to trying many more of the items on the menu.
Large, accessible, single-occupancy restrooms are located in a hallway near the bar. Unfortunately, due to a large barrel decoration at the beginning of the hallway, it would not be possible for a wheelchair to access the restrooms. After a conversation explaining the situation with the manager, we know that this will be corrected quickly.
As always, we at Destination:Accessible, advise you to check a venue’s website, http://www.dirtytacoandtequilla.com">www.dirtytacoandtequilla.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
