CT’s Best Tacos
There is truly a Mexican restaurant for everyone. There are the quiet ones that scream “authentic! authentic! authentic!” and then there are the more modern ones with the guac that is “hand-slapped” or “slapped to order.” And if the recent lime shortage has you in a tizzy and wondering just how the heck you and your margaritas are going to make it through the summer, just head to one of these places. Let them figure out the limes, you can figure out how many drinks and how much lime-infused guacamole to have.
