Tacos and Beach – Restaurant Review

When I used to live in the Midwest, Fort Wayne, IN to be exact, it seemed like there was a Mexican restaurant on just about every corner. When I moved to Vero a little over 6 years ago, we started looking for great Mexican food and always came up short. Over the past few years, we’ve found a couple of places that we find acceptable, but nothing that stood out. I’ve seen a few positive reviews about this place in our Facebook groups, so I had to stop by and check it out for myself. Don’t let the location in the Shell gas station fool you, Owner Tito Moreno is creating authentic Mexican food that is beyond delicious! He’s using organic masa and making his corn tortillas from scratch, which to me makes all the difference in the world when it comes to flavor. Tito is using this location as a launch pad to test his concept and possibly open a brick & mortar store in the near future. Please stop by and support them so they can hopefully make this happen, because we really need more great Mexican restaurant options in this area!

Now let’s jump right in and see what this place has to offer and what I had to eat!
