Empellón Taqueria opened its doors on March 22nd 2011 with the intention of treating tacos with a high level of respect and serving them in a unpretentious and social environment. Empellón offers a diverse selection of tacos and other casual Mexican fare. The menu has been designed with the idea in mind that most ingredients worth eating can benefit further by being placed on top of a well-made tortilla. The kitchen team at Empellón explores the more ubiquitous flavors that we love about Mexica

Perfection every time!

I've been a loyal customer of Empellon since the day they opened. All i can say is that as strange as it sounds, each time i come here it seems like my favorite dishes are becoming tastier and tastier. They also constantly add knew dishes (although i usually stick to my favorites - roasted beet salad, queso fundido, lobster tacos (obscene amount of lobster), scallop tacos, or tongue tacos. Also, the orange salsa that comes with the guac is pure heaven. I always hold on to it for my entire meal and put it on everything. Beside great food, they also have some of the best cocktails. Not the overly sugary kind (think bad lycheetini). The Por Que No is the perfect blend of flavors. Plus, they have tequila and frankly they give you a fast buzz. And if you actually still have room - any of the desserts are delciious (fav is the chocolate ""flan"" - although its the farthest thing from flan. More like a mousse.
