Red Fish Taco

Red Fish Taco is where the tequila flows like water and the Tecate comes in a can. Nestled just steps from the beach in Red Fish Village, the taqueria offers a quick, casual, and approachable chef driven menu with quality ingredients. And did we mention they have Happy Hour, Every Hour? Probably should’ve started with that.

"While staying true to our culinary roots, we wanted to offer a menu that families can enjoy while enjoying the beach, a bike ride or a casual dinner at the beach,” says Owner Chef Jim Richard. "Fast, fresh and casual al fresco style tacos and margaritas."

Obvs, their most popular items are tacos, but Red Fish also features a Grilled Avocado Salad with Blackened Shrimp that has been wildly popular. And it may sound kind of silly, but their Corn Tortilla Chips are amazing. They’re fried fresh to order as much as possible and tossed in a secret Stinky's Spiced Salt. Each chip is hot, perfectly spiced and amazing for your queso or salsa.

Sip on $2 Tecate in the can, $5 wine, and $5 tequila shots available all day, every day. Sit under a bright umbrella on the patio and enjoy a few with friends.  

“We do love Tequila at Red Fish Taco and feature several quality tequilas,” says General Manager Bob Kunkel. “We use Don Julio in our top shelf Stinky Rita. We also have Patron and Casa Noble.”

Red Fish Taco sits right next door to its sister restaurant Trebeache and shares the same ingredients from the kitchen.

“We support as many local farms and purveyors as possible. We are a scratch kitchen and anything going out is made in house,” says Bob.

Red Fish Taco can even feed your tribe, whether four people or forty. The kitchen prepares large to-go orders ready for pick up within short time frames. “Depending on how large the order is, we can adjust pretty quickly on the fly,” says Bob. “Challenge us with a gigantic order!”

Other popular menu items include fresh lemon hummus, house-made salsa, Gulf-shrimp queso, seafood tacos, and vegetarian street tacos. The grilled avocados, fresh frozen margaritas, cold craft and imported beers, along with sodas round out the beverage menu. Red Fish Village has ample free parking and taco-loving dogs are welcome outside. Check out the Red Fish Taco menu on Facebook, and tag your Instagram photos @redfishtaco.
