It’s both! A restaurant with a bar or a bar with food? Doesn't matter, Bartaco is a fun place to gather with friends, imbibe, eat, and laugh.

A cool, casual place with a large bar in the middle, Bartaco offers numerous crafted tacos. The ingredients are really high quality and very tasty. The tacos are small so order several.
Highly recommend the guacamole. The food is consistently spicy so be forewarned.

I love the atmosphere of bar taco. This was my first time in the Stamford location! They have small plates and tons of taco options for reasonable prices so you can make a custom meal. I never have ordered the same exact thing twice because there's new things to try. The menu simply lists items as 1) tacos or 2) not tacos.

We went after a downtown event so it was a 20 minute wait for a table, which is not too bad. I've waited longer at some other locations.

Definitely check out their craft cocktail list, it's impossible to choose a favorite!

We stopped here while out for a walk in Stamford. Not your typical Mexican joint...which is a good thing. The tacos are really small so you will definitely want more than 2 so it may get expensive. Diet cokes we’re $3.50 for EACH can so refills don’t happen. My wife loved the chopped salad (see picture). The guacamole was good but the portion was small. Would have gotten 5 stars if not for the prices which were expensive for the amount of food. Value not great but the food surely is.

Went in there after having read all those great reviews, a bit fearful that my expectations were too high, but this place is fantastic.

I would highly recommend the roast duck taco and the brisket one. They were so gooood. We also ordered the guac and chips, which was really good, but heads up, there's jalapenos in the guac. Im not a fan of it so it was a bit of an unpleasant surprise, but the guac was still good.

Great atmosphere with a novel way or ordering, where you just write in your order in this little leaflet, put it on your table and wait for the waiter to come fetch it. I wish the waiters paid a little more attention to it though. When we wanted seconds, it took them a while to notice it.

Overall, good food experience and great atmosphere. One of my favorite restaurant in the area!
