Who doesn’t love a good taco place. If you like a good vibe with truly amazing food, then 222 Taco is the place for you. 222 Taco is located in the North Bay Village neighborhood right on the 79thstreet Causeway. When you step inside you walk towards the left to order your food at the registers, you get a buzzer and then go find a table. While you wait for the deliciousness to be prepared, they feed your ears with some of the best music I’ve heard in a restaurant in a while. We went the other day with some friends and we ordered quite a few dishes off the menu. And I have to tell you that their fish tacos were the best I’ve ever had in my life. We had some great margarita and the food was so good that we decided what better place to go to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. We went last night, and it didn’t disappoint. The Djs were playing some great music, the atmosphere was so much fun, and again food and drinks were on point.
Now let’s get in depth with food. They have options for all preferences. Meat eaters, fish eaters, and those who don’t eat either but love tacos with vegetables! I pretty much ate everything from the Land options and as mentioned before the Fried Baja Fish is my favorite from the Sea options. Also, if you like fries and meat then the Carne Asada Fries is highly recommended. Now for dessert, both times we had the Paletas of Cookies and Cream. They’ve been good both times, but I guess we will have to go again to try something else. Their margaritas are fresh and some of the best I’ve ever had. Last but not least, the novelty shop offers some traditional candies, pillow cases, and other nick knacks for your home. All in all, I would recommend this place to locals, friends, and out of towners.
