Be Prepared for Orlando Taco Week
Even though this is the first official taco week in Orlando, it is anticipated to be a hugely popular event, so be prepared to wait for your tasty taco and possible shortages.
In an effort to combat disappointments Orlando Taco Week has asked participating restaurants to publicize their expected wait times online, with the hashtag #orlandotacoweek. This means you can plan your visits accordingly. But, we suggest arriving as early as possible to your selected restaurant to avoid long queues.
Do you plan on visiting a restaurant for a taco feast, with drinks or are you planning a taco party at home with your friends? You can find out which restaurants offer a take-out option by using the Official Taco Week Passport to find the restaurants that best suit your requirements. Many taco experiences will be “dine-in” only.
You can stay up to date with the latest news about Taco Week by following OrlandoTacoWeek on Instagram.
Drinks All Round!
You’ll definitely need to wash your taco down with an equally tasty drink. While beer is often a popular choice with tacos, we have found something especially for you, on the Supercall blog.
Amanda Gabrielle has written this great article about “The Best Classic Cocktails to Drink With Tacos”. We found it both interesting and helpful and we hope you will too.
