Capital Tacos: A Local Treasure
In a land where corporate restaurant chains and franchises rule, you never know when or where you might find a unique restaurant that does something different and special.
I found a real treasure in a very unlikely place. On Land O’Lakes Boulevard in Land O’Lakes, tucked in a corner of a strip mall (easy to miss) is Capital Tacos.
Capital Tacos is a small restaurant with a big menu. Most of its business is take-out, but there are a few tables both inside and outside if you want to eat in. As tiny as the place is, the atmosphere is fun and friendly.
With all the taquerias in Florida, you have to make a great taco to be viable competition. Capital Tacos offers fresh Tex-Mex style tacos with a variety of fresh, creative fillings. The entire menu is available as tacos, burritos, wet burritos, bowls, nachos or salad; even the breakfast tacos!
A few things set Capital Tacos apart from other taco joints. First, the menu is exciting and extensive, with something for every taste, including the adventurous and the vegetarian. The food is fresh and healthy, but if you want, you can try something delicious that will make your doctor cry, like hand-cut potato chips with a bucket of queso dip.
Capital Tacos takes pride in cooking fresh ingredients from scratch, and making them available for a low price. I paid under thirty dollars for lunch for four hungry people. You can bet we’ll be back!
