Ver Daddy's Taco Shop - Biscayne Blvd MIA

lax2mia | Feb 25, 200702:25 PM     18

Blech! I've been waiting for this place on Biscayne and around 70th to open for a while after noting that Taco Max (a little further north) wasn't doing so hot. I saw that it finally closed and at around the same time Ver Daddy's opened. How much do I miss Taco Max? Yesterday I had a potato taco at Ver Daddy's that was literally french fries on a tortilla. Not potatoes and rajas, not potatoes and chorizo, french fries. It was vile. My S.O. had a chile verde pork taco and the pork was still tough and undercooked. The tostadas were served on fried flour tortillas with the greyest, most unappetizing looking refried beans I'd ever seen. And as for the tortillas, there is no corn to be found. Everything comes on a flour tortilla: the tacos, the tostadas, even tortilla chips are fried flour ones that are disgustingly greasy and heavy.

I've given this place two chances and am writing it off. It has no saving grace. The dining room is messy and unkept, the service is apathetic (even though it's just a counter) and the food I've already talked about. Anyone else given this place a try?
