Balance is the true key to a great taco. A little too sweet, too hot or light on filling, and “great” can turn to “meh” pretty quickly. Too much filling, and a corn tortilla can tear apart. At Revolver Taco Lounge, they seem to be having no trouble hitting the mark. That includes both regulars and rotating specials. Consider the supersized cabrito taco, loaded down with ultra-rich Michoacan-style stewed meat from a 30-day-old kid goat, so generously filled that two of the restaurant’s tortillas are required to corral this meaty monster. Or the pulpo, on which octopus, so tenderly cooked it’s almost airlike, is set beneath fried leeks and an invigorating jalapeño crema. Even if it only served tacos, Revolver might be one of the city’s more exciting new restaurants. But owner Regino Rojas is a kitchen daredevil whose ambitions don’t stop there. That’s why, to the surprise of first-timers who haven’t been to the original location in Fort Worth, the restaurant has a list of ceviche preparations as long as its list of tacos and just as good.
