I’m a sucker for good tacos, and I speak from experience when I say the Tacovore in Eugene has definitely figured out how to master the perfect, mouthwatering taco. While they are a bit pricier than some places, I have never left disappointed and felt my money was well spent. They stick out in the crowd, and you’ll just have to drop in to see for yourself what all the buzz is about.

And it’s not just the mouth-watering food here. Tacovore is known for their awesome atmosphere. Relaxed and casual with Mexican art and candles, colorful chalkboards, and the happy buzz of conversation and laughter. Did we mention you can sip your pineapple habanero margarita from a mason jar?
Whether you’re a carnivore or vegetarian, Tacovore has you covered with so many different tasty tacos on the menu, made with only the best fresh local ingredients. Everything from gluten-free to vegetarian and vegan options, with unique options such as the Crispy Tofu taco. Another one that will make your mouth salivate instantly is The Old E for $3.50. This tasty taco is seasoned with ground grass-fed Oregon Beef, Tillamook Cheddar Cheese, lettuce, and a house made crema & molcajete salsa in a hard shell.
Personally, I love their grilled chicken and carne asada tacos! The carne asada is cooked to juicy perfection and is topped with oranges, Serrano chilies, cilantro, jicama, onions, and house-made crema.
And if you are looking to eat light, don’t forget healthy options like their kale salad. The sald is mixed in a creamy hazelnut chipotle dressing, avocado, and corn crisps, a ceviche salad with citrus cured rockfish, avocado, cucumber, grapefruit, jalapeño, and chips, delicious tortas and more.
Everyone raves about their margaritas, made with the best tequila you can find in the area. If you’re looking to get the weekend buzz started, take down two of these bad boys and you will be ready to go.
The margaritas at Tacovore are made with refreshing hand squeezed lemons and limes, 100 percent agave tequila, simple syrup and triple sec. Worth every penny! If you want to just enjoy a beer, they also offer draft beer and popular Mexican beers as well.
If you’re craving a delicious taco, this taqueria is the perfect spot to take your work buddies for lunch. Or your mom, the kids… Pretty much anybody who loves amazing Mexican food. Also worth mentioning is 50 cent tacos between 3 pm and 6 pm every day!
