A new spot to score tacos and more has opened its doors in the neighborhood. The newcomer to Shadyside, called Tocayo Taqueria & Tequila, is located at 810 Ivy St.
According to the business' Facebook page, Tocayo Taqueria & Tequila is "a place for people to come together and share in their common love of authentic Mexican cuisine and sip on the finest tequila."
The menu features grilled chicken, steak or veggie burritos (filled with rice, black beans, melted cheese and guajillo salsa), fish tacos (seasonal breaded fish, cabbage slaw, cilantro-lime salsa, avocado, pico de gallo and scallions) and the quesadilla (grilled chicken, sautéed onions, bell peppers and melted cheeses) accompanied by fiesta rice, sour cream and pico de gallo.
With a five-star rating out of 11 reviews on Yelp so far, the newcomer has already made a good impression.
Shannon A., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on August 9, wrote, "Wow, this place is amazing! I got the octopus tacos, and my cousin got the barbacoa tacos, and we split. Couldn't decide which one was better... And the churros were the best I've ever had. Highly recommend."
And Alexa M. wrote, "...It was so good! Really great customer service on top of amazing food...Definitely coming back."
