Urban Taco Takes on Brunch

It seems like every invitation I've gotten in the last month from restaurants isn't for grand openings or to come "meet the new chef". Nope, it seems like more and more restaurants are jumping on the brunch bandwagon. And to that I say, "Halleluiah! What took you so long!?"  Brunch is my favorite meal of the day. You can sleep in... enjoy a leisurely meal... preferably with cocktails... It's relaxed, fun and always yummy.

Yesterday I told you about the new brunch menu at Del Frisco's Grille. Today, I am going to take your taste buds south of the border to talk about the mouth-watering deliciousness of Urban Taco.  Let's start right up front with a disclaimer. Urban Taco is a client of my advertising agency, but I can assure you that I wouldn't write about it if I didn't truly want to recommend it to you.  And I DO want to recommend it to you.  I mean, I really don't have to write another word... just feast your eyes on these photos!

Huevos Rancheros
Kids of all ages will dig the La Jolla French Toast

Urban Taco has two Dallas locations: on McKinney Ave. in Uptown and in Mockingbird Station.  If you are into dining al fresco, visit Uptown as it has a spacious multi-level patio with TVs and an outside bar that will have you ordering cocktail after cocktail because you don't want to leave.   Did you know they also have a location in DFW International Airport? Yep. Next time you are traveling, you can stop by Terminal C/Gate 22 for some yumminess on the go.

If you looking for something fun to do for Mother's Day this weekend, this would be a great place to visit. It's not too casual but not too stuffy - and Mom will get a free entree! Urban Taco features delicious food and a fun and inviting atmosphere that the whole family will enjoy.
