Viva el taco!

Newport is home to some of the very best tacos

Who doesn’t love a good taco? We’re not sure, but here in Newport, we’re lucky to have many options for a variety of great tacos! Although tacos originated in Mexico, they have become one of America’s most favorite foods; they even have their own unofficial day: Taco Tuesday.

Tacos are usually available in soft or hard corn or flour tortillas or shells, or you can often order a variation without the tortilla or shell as a taco salad. A variety of fillings and hot sauces can be added to your choice of meat, and because Newport harvests the very freshest seafood daily,

our fish tacos are amazing! Check out these local spots to find the perfect taco.
