Bel Air's $6 special (can choose from a selection of tacos, 3 get you free rice and beans) on Tuesdays and Thursdays is always a good deal, but the Iron Horse hotel recently just launched their own Taco Tuesday deal that gets customers all you can eat tacos (chicken, carnitas, fried cod) rice and beans, chips and salsas and two margaritas for only $20. (per person) This is a steal, especially when able to eat outside on Iron Horse's patio, also known as the yard. Live music also runs on Sundays from 3-5 p.m. and Fridays from 6 to 8 p.m at the Yard. This deal is impressive considering the tacos are all you can eat versus the drinks being all you can drink. Cloud Red (opens at 4 p.m.) also has a $5 taco special on Tuesdays that serves us plentiful tempeh, shrimp and one more meat-based option with strong chips and salsa. Although Cloud Red's taco deal is only a dollar off, it is still a great deal and gets you chips and salsa and a pretty nice portion. Drink specials run on Mondays at Cloud Red as well and provide people with a chance to kick back and have a couple drinks.
While there are some places I need to try including Mazorca, Gypsy Taco and the Laughing Taco, I do think the aforementioned deals are great buys and can grant you a lot of food for less money you would typically pay. Milwaukee is a great place to live on a budget while still enjoying some top-quality eats at moderate prices. If anyone has any other taco deals that they know about please let me know! Overall, all three spots provide Milwaukee folks with a unique set of taco deals, and I am excited to see what else comes inside these corn tortillas at other spots around town. Peace and grub!
