Velvet Taco location on West 7th in Fort Worth

Whenever I get a craving for tacos (which could be anytime of day or night) I make a beeline for Velvet Taco. This LocalSugar Fave on Henderson Avenue serves up the goods from a scratch kitchen-including making their own tortillas and roasting their chicken and corn. We have been spoiled in Dallas by having this unique taqueria in our city for three years and now Fort Worth has their very own location on West 7th.

Personal Faves: #7 Cuban Pig and #2 Rotisserie Chicken Tacos

Choose from items on the standard menu by selecting your main ingredient like chicken, pork, veggie or fish and then deciding on the delicious combinations that Velvet Taco has created. Try Picnic Chicken with avocado crema, warm honey-dijon fingerling potato salad, crispy chicken skin, cilantro in a flour tortilla, Cornmeal Fried Oyster with remoulade, napa slaw, roast corn pico, chili butter in a blue corn tortilla or one of my faves-the Cuban Pig with gruyere cheese, slow roasted pulled pork, haved ham, peppered bacon, frain mustard, house brined pickles in a crisp flour tortilla.

Accompany your tacos with one of the tasty sides offered on the menu including Roasted Potatoes, Rotisserie Corn and Crispy Tots & Local Egg. Velvet Taco also offers three Egg based tacos that are served all day but taste especially great in the wee hours of the morning. After all, Velvet Taco stays open until 3am on Thursday and 4am on Friday and Saturday (closes at midnight Sunday-Wednesday).

Wash it all down with pure cane  sodas like Texas Sweet Peach and Rummy Grapefruit or, if you want something a little stronger, Velvet Taco offers beer, margaritas and sangria.

Shhhh. Here's a great tip! If you don't feel like cooking dinner after a long day at work you can stop by Velvet Taco, knock on the back door, hand them $20 cash money and they will hand you a bag of goodness including 1 Rotisserie Chicken, 2 sides of Elote Style Rotisserie Corn, 6 corn tortillas, roasted corn pico de gallo and Korean BBQ Sauce.
