Just over a year ago, R Taco opened its first Ohio location on Brown Street. Since then, it’s become a favorite place to flock to for tacos, margaritas and more.
We tried four different tacos off the menu, including one seasonal item, to experience the street style tacos ourselves. Heads up: we weren’t disappointed.
1. BBQ BRISKET
Tender, slow roasted brisket with BBQ sauce and slaw give this taco a perfect blend of sweet and savory. The slaw balances the fall-apart brisket with a nice crunch.
2. GREEN STREET (SEASONAL)
Made with pork, cilantro, raw onion, avocado, jalapeno ranch and cotija cheese. Even with all of the ingredients, the flavors stand out in their own refreshing (and delicious) way.
3. BAJA SHRIMP (GRILLED)
Available with crispy or grilled shrimp, this taco is topped with creamy baja sauce, red cabbage and cilantro. The baja sauce has a bit of a kick, which complements the grilled shrimp (my preference) super well.
4. FAJITA CHICKEN
Seasoned chicken, Pico de Gallo and fresh cilantro make this simple, yet tasty, taco a hit on this list.
Prices and menu options vary by location. 3 tacos from R Taco in Dayton cost less than $10.
