Taco Teresa’s is the new fast casual Mexican restaurant from the owner of the Minnesota chain; Teresa’s Mexican Restaurant. My obsession with tacos and queso dip coupled with the dangerously close proximity of Taco Teresa’s to my office meant I was basically a bi-weekly regular and now that I have accepted a new job opportunity and will no longer be around the corner, this Hipster Hack will have to serve as both my homage and my swan song haha.
My normal lunch order consisted of 1-2 street tacos depending on my hunger level after I ate the entire queso dip, since there was not a time where I did NOT order the queso dip (I proudly admit my obsession). I did try out the quesadilla once and really liked it, but it was way too much food for lunch (great leftovers, though!), and some ex-coworkers of mine also raved about the queso fries, chimichanga, and the nachos. Basically, I don’t think there is a bad item on the menu.
The street tacos come on corn tortillas and your choice of meat or vegetarian options. As I’ve explained before it’s my habit to pair a taco I already know I like with one more adventurous taco, so I still have quite a few I haven’t tried there yet, but I will rank the ones I did try in order of my preference:
- Al Pastor (Marinated Pork) – this is just such a classic with such great flavors
- Pollo Asado (Grilled Chicken) – this is the taco I order when I’m trying to feel “healthiest”
- Carnitas (Pulled Pork)
- Carne Molida (Ground Beef)
- Nopales con Queso (Cactus with Cheese) – this was really good, but it was way to spicy for me
Chips & Salsa Bar:
They also have a chips & salsa bar. The chunky salsa and the verde were my goto salsas, but if I was on the lookout for a spicier sauce there is also a creamier sauce which is made with the verde and some jalapeno.
The fast-casual environment is perfect for tacos and a great place to stop for lunch. Pro Tip is to try to get there right before noon in you want a table since the rush starts right at noon.
As for dinner and Happy Hour, while the closest I got to going there for dinner was getting take out on my way out of work one night, they do have some beers available so it could definitely be a night spot if it’s too far away for lunch!
They have a pretty slick computer system which allows you to select your tip and sign digitally, which makes it more efficient. As for service, the staff are always very friendly and a couple times, when they had just opened, they did walk around with some samples of their desserts (I recommend the churros).
I’m going to miss being so close, but take out may just become my best friend.
