a says: (April, Dinner, Party of 10) We had a friend urging us (read: begging) to join him for a night at Loco Pez, so we ventured to Fishtown with a large group of taco aficionados, ready for the weekend. The decor at Loco Pez can best be described as taco bar chic and most of the room is dedicated to the bar. I was thoroughly impressed with the salsa, guacamole, and rounds of tacos we ordered throughout the night. I think the best taco was the shrimp followed by the chorizo; the al pastor could have had more flavor. v really enjoyed the vegetarian options and thought the taco accoutrements (cilantro, onions, pico de gallo, etc.) were solid. The mushroom taco was especially fresh and flavorful. We are looking forward to returning so we can try the few remaining tacos (carne asada, pollo, spinach). Beers are reasonably priced and drinks were well made. Of the two margaritas v enjoyed, the Impala (classic margarita) was the best. Turn to Loco Pez when trying to score no-fuss tacos, or with a group that has a vegetarian or two.
