The Dish – Tacos

Tacos are always a good idea. So why shouldn’t Taco Tuesday be celebrated all week long? And at a deep discount too?

Luckily, Toronto restaurants and bars feel the same way, offering daily features where you can indulge in your love of all things tacos every day of the week. And for just $1-$12.95.

Take a look:

Chadwick's Craft Kitchen & Bar
268 Howland Ave.

If you’re of the mindset that one taco is never enough, Chadwick’s at Dupont has got you covered.

The fillings change every week, with one, sometimes two selections on Tallboys & Tacos Thursdays.

Three Tacos & A Tallcan ($18.50) could include beef brisket, chicken, pulled pork, fish, braised beef, pork belly, or veggie, so you should probably go every week to try each one. 

The Cloak & Dagger Pub
394 College St.

Did you know that every Sunday is Tacofest at this wood-paneled watering hole at College and Bathurst?

This all-you-can-eat event at the edge of Little Italy has been in effect since 201, and the low price remains eight years later. For just 10 bucks per person, build/eat as many tacos as you want. Options include meat and veg selections, hard and soft shells.

Sunday Funday, indeed. 

Craft Beer Market
1 Adelaide St. E.

The colossal taproom from out west celebrates Taco Tuesdays with fish tacos ($3 ea.) after 2pm.

p.s. Since you’re there anyway, get in on half priced bottles of rosé & $6 local IPA, available all day.

Firkin Pubs
Multiple locations

From the company that brought you Grilled Mac n’ Cheesewich, Pierogi Flatbread, and Big Effin Nachos, comes Fish Tacos ($5) alongside Coors Light ($6) every Tuesday.

Since it’s a larger chain, calorie counts are included for each item. The tacos are 320 cals each and beer is 180 cals per 20 ounces, so you can plan accordingly.

And with 24 locations across the GTA, you’ll have no trouble finding one near you. 

Jasper Dandy
725 Queen St. E.

Got a case of the Mondays? Head to Riverside’s newest bar for their $5 Mexican specials - Tequila Tromba, Modela Especial, and Fish Tacos.

Latin World
Two locations - 1229 Bloor St. W. and 1028 St. Clair Ave. W.

Looking for a serious bargoon? Latin World’s daily taco specials for $1 just can’t be beat.

The Pint
277 Front St. W. 

If you’re going to the game or want to watch the game, this place comes in handy.

Located beside the Rogers Centre with over 100 HDTVs, you never have to fight for screen time, and on Tuesdays, you can watch with tacos ($4) and Corona ($5) in hand. 

Rally Restaurant & Bar
Two locations - 1660 O’Connor Dr. and 4950 Yonge St.

Whichever location you choose - the long standing sport bar on O’Connor or the just opened spot in North York - hump day is a bit easier knowing that tacos ($4*), Margaritas ($5) and Corona ($5) are waiting for you.

* with the purchase of any beverage.

Speakeasy 21
40 King St. W.

Long day at the office? Need a respite from work?

This resto-bar in The Financial District is here for you on Tuesdays after 4pm with tacos ($9/3 pcs), bar rail ($5), house wine ($6), and draft beer ($7).

Tallboys Craft Beer House
838 Bloor St. E. 

Tallboys is the place to be on Tuesdays, where you can mix and match any type of taco ($4 ea. incl. tax).

The fact that they serve exclusively Ontario craft beer doesn’t hurt either. 

The Victorian Monkey
2386 Kingston Rd.

The unconventional Scarborough kitchen and social club boasts a unique setting, 18 beers on tap, 12-ft. shuffleboard table, and an array of daily specials including Monday’s Cabo Wabo Fish Taco Dinner ($12.95), available 5pm to close.
