Today on the Bite Tonight: TAQO Detroit
Located on W Adams across from Grand Circus Park in Downtown Detroit is TAQO Detroit. I was visiting Amanda and Zoe at their new apartment at the Kale’s and as we were walking to Olga’s, decided to stop in to TAQO Detroit instead. Yesterday was their soft opening. See how they ranked.

We started with an appetizer
Roasted Corn Calamari: Deep fried calamari tossed with roasted corn and jalapenos with a chipotle mayo. We opted out for the jalapenos. The mayo was thick, spicy, and delicious. The calamari was tender and the batter was light and spicy. The roasted corn made it hard to eat as a finger food, but all together this was a delicious appetizer.
Steak Fajitas: Steak, onions, peppers, zucchini, and tomatoes. The meat was tender and the zucchini was a nice touch.
Served with a side of rice and beans,cheese, lettuce, sour cream, pico de gallo, and guacamole.
Presentation was great. Service was good, but a little too good. We were there for maybe an hour and at least 6 different employees other than our server came over to ask how everything was. I’m not sure if maybe it was because it was the first day they were opened, but it was a little annoying. The food was a little pricey, but was delicious and authentic. The dining room was colorful, inviting, and had a Mexican street look with exposed brick. Stop in for a margarita and check em out.
Zoe had a great time!
