This neighborhood taco joint is so fun you’ll want to make the trek even if you don’t live in North Bay Village (which, admittedly, most people don’t because it is tiny). Once there, you’re greeted with free, ample parking (a Miami miracle) and a super fun atmosphere with DJ-spun tunes and bursts of bright Oaxacan accents—like imported tiles and funky throw pillows as backs for the chill, window-facing booths. It’s a fast-casual spot, which means you’ll order at the counter (be sure to stock up on Mexican candy on display next to the register) and bring your buzzer with you to a table in the dining room. But there’s a catch, and you’ll just have to blame the alcohol for the minor inconvenience. Cocktails are only available from the bar (frozen ’ritas and beer can be ordered with food), though you can get food brought to you if you sit at the bar. Confused? Just go with it, says owner Anna Robbins. “Why does everything have to make sense?” You’ll have no problem wrapping your head around the list of delicious, spirit-forward drinks she’s created, including her signature banana margarita. It’s a must. Other menu essentials include the al pastor, which is cooked in a traditional Mexican trompo and can be ordered in a taco, burrito and various other iterations, breakfast chilaquiles (served all day) and nachos, including a vegan version that’s arguably better than the regular kind.
