WIAW: Lucky Taco (Manchester, CT)

21 Sep

Happy hump day! Hope your week is going well πŸ™‚ Ours has been filled with all of the house stuff as our family housewarming party is rapidly approaching. We took some time out from the painting life this past Friday evening to enjoy dinner at a local spot that I have been trying to get Dan to visit for the past year or so, after my first visit with my friend Caitlin.

Lucky Taco is a Cantina and Tap Room located in Manchester, CT. It started in 2011 as a food truck and then they decided to open up a brick and mortar location as the business quickly became very popular. What I love most about Lucky Taco is the overall vibe, there are no false pretenses and you can tell as soon as you walk in that they are all about the good food and delicious drinks.


We each started off with a margarita, I had the white peach and Dan enjoyed the pomegranate. Both were incredible and I appreciated the fact that they use the local Ripe Bar Juice and fresh fruit puree in their margaritas.


As we were enjoying our cocktails, chips and fresh salsa were brought over which was excellent because we were both completely famished. The salsa was out of this world and Dan could not stop raving about how fresh it was. We could have made a meal out of that alone but I wanted Dan to enjoy the full experience πŸ™‚


For our meals, we decided to split a few different things. Dan ordered the special of the night, which was a Michelada burrito, filled to the brim with perfectly cooked beef brisket, black beans, guacamole, rice, and more that I can’t even remember. I ordered four different tacos: the stewed chicken, kung pao chicken, spicy adobo marinated shrimp, and the tasty Thai chicken.


We shared everything but my favorite was definitely the spicy adobo marinated shrimp as whatever was in that cool crema verde sauce was incredible. Dan loved the burrito the most as brisket is one of his favorite cuts of meat.


Lucky Taco is a great little spot for a date night, girls night, or even just drinks and apps. I have also heard that they have a great happy hour too! During football season, they are also doing all day happy hour on Sundays which we will definitely be participating in very soon πŸ˜‰

Lucky Taco is located at 829 Main Street, Manchester, CT and their hours are Monday – Saturday (11:00am-10:00pm) and Sunday (11:00pm- 9:00pm).

Have a great rest of your week!
