What would happen if you took the elements that have made a certain Six Corners bar so oppressively popular—creative tacos, cheap beer, good music—and moved them a mile west? You could get a taco (grilled sweet potato, fried chicken, slow-roasted brisket), the whiskey shot of the day and a tall boy for $6, seat included.

Best tacos with melt in your mouth homemade tortillas and the margaritas are fresh and delicious and made with actual lime juice, yum!


Tacos aren't exactly difficult to come by in this neighborhood, but few spots offer the more creative options that Bullhead Cantina specializes in. All the major proteins are accounted for (beef, chicken, fish, pork), but creations like the roasted beet taco and the grits and kale taco are also worth a try. Plus, you can always get a great deal: $6 for a shot, a taco and a tallboy—not bad at all.
