Metro Taco Stop
We are a concept that will not fit in the stereotypes of traditional Tex-Mex restaurants. Even though being faithful to the usual ingredients, our approach will prove there is a different type of Mexican essence, since Mexican food principles remain the same yet the minds of those currently in charge of preparing such a culinary art are picturing its modern side based on experience and loving new, contemporary quality standards.
Quality over Quantity
We put a lot of effort in the quality of our food. By only using the freshest ingredientes, and cooking with passion we can always gurantee that your experience at Metro Taco Stop will always be satisfactory.
