I think we spent 50$ on 5 tacos and two beers. It's all about the image that goes with Dallas. Great place will come back

I have been going to Velvet Taco since they opened and still go about once a month as I cannot find a better spot and I have looked at countless taco shop recommendations in this town. I know I will get quality and sometimes get something new. Consistent, and reasonable-can't beat that,

Love this place!! Not only are the tacos fantastic - in a nontraditional, no mex way - but the whole back door thing is really cool! So what does that mean? Well on Monday evenings you can go to the back door and for $10 you get a rotisserie chicken and side for your take home meal! You literally follow... More

This is THE place for tacos. It is not snooty, no fussy, not trendy-- just great tasting tacos. Regardless of what you eat, there is a taco here for you. Most places "vegetarian" taco consists of beans, lettuce, and salsa. Not here...there are several vegetarian options and I tried all of them and all of them were great. They offer... More

If you want some great gourmet tacos, this is place to get them. Its a small, hole-in-the-wall, but the food is fantastic. I stopped in for lunch with a buddy from out of town as I've heard how great this place is. When I told my coworkers where we were going, two people asked me to pick something up for... More

Whenever a group of us wants a midnight snack and it seems like only fast food is open, Velvet Taco is our go-to (though we have gone for lunch or dinner before). The tacos are delicious, with interesting flavors that are different from typical fare. It's not terribly expensive, and two tacos are filling. The food is delicious, the location... More

Superb experience ... even with the 1o minute wait in line. As we arrived, parking is a challenge, and the line to order was out the door. The menu is very broad and excellent; chicken, veggie, pork, beef and fish. You can also personalize your order from the menu.

Great food, quick, cool vibe. Can't ask for much more! We tried all 3 of the vegetarian taco options, #4-Nashville Hot Tofu, #5-Fried Paneer, & #6-Falafel. The falafel was by far my favorite, only because the other 2 were a bit spicy for me. My husband loved those ones though!

A friend introduced me to this awesome joint. It's open past midnight and a great place to grab a bite after a night of bar hopping. I love the patio seating. The tacos are delicious! They have two vegetarian options - falafel taco and paneer(Indian cheese) taco. Both are finger licking good! The falafel taco, by default, comes in a... More
