Tacolicious Palo Alto
632 Emerson Street
Palo Alto 94301

Tacolicious is by no means a traditional taqueria—you won't find burritos here. What started out in the summer of 2009 as a little taco stand at the Thursday Ferry Plaza Farmers Market in San Francisco with a fittingly frivolous name, has become four sit-down, cocktail-driven restaurants, 120 tequilas strong. Tacos anchor a menu that extends to dishes such as beet salad with grapefruit and pumpkin seeds, tuna tostadas, grilled squid served Veracruz-style, albondigas, shrimp a la diabla, and toasted coconut flan. Palo Alto slings special, frozen margaritas not otherwise available at our other locations and boasts a private dining room to host epic events of all kinds.
