Nichole and I had a recent lunch meeting (conveniently on National Margarita Day) so Taco Hangover was obvi the best choice. As margarita lovers, who like to over indulge on chips, queso and good vibes…this is our recommendation.
The skinny on this WDM street style taco joint? A cool, lively atmosphere w/ fresh inexpensive food. It’s part of Riley Drive, Inc. which is the management company for the various sports pubs and bars around the Metro (Saints, Tonic and RDQ Smokehouse). Taco Hangover has been such a hit since its Grand Opening in 2016, that they are opening up 2 more locations this spring in Ankeny and Urbandale!
What can you expect? Authentic food, unique drinks and energetic staff. The patio party deck is the heart and soul guaranteeing a great time! Happy Hour specials are daily 2-6PM w/ select $2 tacos every Tuesday! Enjoy a sit down experience (live patio music every Sunday!) , or grab a sack to-go if you’re on the run. The master chef is based out of KC and he’s always keeping up with the crowd pleasing menu. Best sellers: Spicy Blackened Shrimp and KC Burnt Tips, washed down with The Perfect Cure or Strawberry Basil Lemonade. In our opinion, you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. See for yourself …#warning, you’ll want to eat > MENU.
We had the pleasure to sit down with Scott Wegner, the GM. What a nice guy! All-in-all our meeting was productive. We knocked some “to-do’s” off our checklist, enjoyed fresh naked taco bowls with chips, salsa and amazing drinks. That’s a good day, if you ask us. Keep your eyes peeled for the patio opening (anticipated for April 1st), along with another stellar Cinco de Mayo celebration!
