Taco Y Vino

  • Beer/Wine
One of Bishop Arts’ most welcoming neighborhood hangouts is dedicated to the proposition that tacos pair well with wine. Taco y Vino upped the ante during the pandemic, creating a $30 takeout package of six tacos and a bottle of cava, which became one of the city’s most instantly memorable to-go deals. This isn’t your grandmother’s wine bar; it’s a super-casual spot that takes all the elitism and exclusion out of wine-drinking. Have a glass on the lawn during loteria night and pair your bubbles with a dish inspired by owner Jimmy Contreras’ upbringing in San Antonio, like shrimp-stuffed jalapeños or crispy carnitas tacos.

Top pick: Although we love the cochinita pibil tacos, our top pick — and the very last bite of food this author had inside a restaurant in March, hours before Dallas County shut down dining rooms — is the brunch order of chilaquiles, a classic rendition served with refried black beans.

Fun fact: Watch the restaurant’s Facebook or Instagram feed for information on impulsive, creative taco specials.
