Thought it could use a new thread for new reviews since the other thread was already pretty long.

We went for lunch to day and thought it was really good, Scott Howell was behind the line. With just 2 people we couldn't sample a whole lot but here's what we had. The chips and salsa, $2.00 (chips and guac. $4.50) but the basket of chips is very generous. The salsa was slightly chunky and fairly mild,good but I like salsa a little hotter. The bottles of Cholula and Valentino on the table will take care of that though.

For the tacos (X3), burritos, quesadillas, and tortas you get a choice of meats. All are $6.00, rice and beans +$1.50
Chili rubbed pork butt
Rotisserie chicken
Garlic slow cooked beef
Braised beef tounge
Grilled veggies

And then there are the "dirty meats" +$2.00
Braised hog jowels
Duck confit
Lamb cheeks
Crispy pork belly

I went with 3 tacos-chicken, duck, and hog jowels. I wanted the crispy pork belly but they didn't have any today. My wife got the 2 tacos (pork and beef) with beans, rice and drink lunch special($6.50). All the fillings were great but the tortillas (corn although you can get flour) really stood out. They looked hand made/pressed and were a little thicker than normal, definitely more sturdy than a lot of corn tortillas but not dried out either, Overall we really liked it even though as die hard crawfish fans are still mourning the loss of The Fish Shack.

The take out menu lists the web address as www.nanataco.com but it isn't up yet. We were told to follow @nanataco on Twitter for specials and updates.
