Hot Taco

Forget Chipotle and Qdoba*, if you want a quick burrito downtown you have to go to Hot Taco.  Tucked away behind the Fox Theater, it’s located on a quiet street (at least on non-game days) with a half dozen other restaurants.  My co-workers and I first went to Hot Taco when it opened in 2012 and I have been unable to resist a shrimp taco/burrito ever since.  This weekend I finally brought Danny over there and he was equally impressed.  The flavor combination and fresh ingredients are hard to beat – especially at their prices.


Since it was a quiet Sunday afternoon I decided to see if anyone was interested in answering my standard questions. I got lucky and both Arnold and Hanjari were willing.
