Mix and match tacos at Avo Taco make for fun, fast-casual dining | Where NOLA Eats

Departing from your go-to taco order can be hard. But it can also be a lot fun at the right place.

At Avo Taco, there is no build-your-own taco option, but the menu does feature 20 specialty tacos that combine fresh ingredients for creative finishes. 

The tacos fall into five categories: veggie, seafood, chicken, pork and beef.

During my recent visit, I ordered El Jefe, CoCo Loco and The Carny. Each taco was $5.

Served on a corn tortilla, El Jefe featured chipotle chicken, caramelized pineapple, cilantro and poblano crema.

The CoCo Loco was sage-breaded shrimp and crisp slaw topped with sweet chili, toasted coconut and cilantro.

The Carny was braised pork shoulder, pickled cabbage, poblano crema, cotija cheese and cilantro.

Quesadillas and starters like green chili queso, carnitas-topped guacamole and street corn round out the unique menu.

The lowkey taco spot is operates inside of Port Orleans Brewing Co. A side courtyard entrance, hidden behind a wall of greenery, reveals picnic tables, lounge chairs and hammocks for a casual dining experience. The taproom and restaurant share the outdoor courtyard, patio and inside dining area. 

All menu items at Avo Taco are offered a la carte. On Tuesdays, the restaurant has an all-day special that includes any three tacos for $12.
