I like tacos. I like hole-in-the-wall restaurants. Take me to a hole-in-the-wall taco stand and I’m a happy camper.
The stars and planets aligned last week while we were back down in St. Augustine to move Jenna home for the summer. We rolled into town just before supper time. By the time we got situated in our hotel room we were ready to find something to eat. Jenna sent us a list of possible restaurants and we finally managed to settle on Mojo’s Tacos, located over on Anastasia Island on A1A, beyond the Bridge of Lions.
It wasn’t crowded when we got there so we took our time checking out the menu before stepping up to the counter to place our orders. I decided on two beef tacos and a chicken taco, ConnieLou went with two chicken tacos and Jenna ordered shrimp nachos.
I didn’t realize it when we ordered but the tacos are served “double decker” with a hard shell inside a soft tortilla. The tacos are dressed with cheddar cheese, lettuce, fresh house-made salsa and Mojo’s special Mojo Sauce. The nachos were dressed with melted white queso, jalapenos, Mojo Sauce and black beans.
Our orders arrived quickly and we dug in. Either we were really hungry or the food was really good, or more likely both, because our table got really quiet as our food disappeared.
So how did Mojo’s Tacos fare on the Thumbs Scale? Give ‘em 6 out of a possible 6 and add a couple of toes. There are so many good places to eat in and around St. Augustine that we typically try not to revisit restaurants unless they were really good. Mojo’s Tacos definitely made the list of places to revisit.
