    If the wait is long, the food is worth it in the end. The rotisserie chicken is my favorite, some of the best tacos I've ever had. And where else can you get velvet cake on the side?

    Mmmm, whether it’s brunch, lunch, or dinner, Velvet Taco always hits the spot just right! But did you know that most restaurants don’t? The food industry is making an innocent mistake… Read more

    So clutch after a night out. The line will be long but moves pretty quick. The #3 is my go-to taco here but there are so many options you can't really go wrong. Oh and two tacos is usually enough.

    The chicken tikka masala taco is amazing and different from any taco I've ever had. All tacos can be lettuce wrapped to be made gluten-free. Can't go wrong if you want Tacos in Dallas!

    Love this place. It's perfect because there's tons of variety so you can get whatever you're craving. Everything I've had has been fantastic except for the picnic basket. Didnt care for that

    The shredded roast pork, the grilled flank steak, & grilled flank steak with egg tacos are the best! Next time I'll be trying the Maine lobster. They also have a nice dog friendly patio.

    You have to get the cornmeal fried oyster taco—it's delicious and I've haven't heard of one anywhere else. Also, they make their own double layer red velvet cake that is worth saving room for.

    This is so much more than a taco place. The #19 is a revelation. As is the #6. And the corn. Get a margarita. Best value in Dallas. Ok I'm done.

    Knock on the back door, hand them $20 and in a few minutes a whole rotisserie chicken, 2 cups of elotes, 6 tortillas and sauces will be in your hand.

    I don't think I've ever had a breakfast taco as flavorful as #19. Fingerling potatoes, chili butter, bacon, and egg. A really swooner.

    Avoid this place like the plague! Tacos are good, but not worth trade off of lack of seating and rude customers. Stood for 15 mins with food that got cold cuz people saved seats for people not there

    The original #3, the buffalo chicken taco was removed from the menu. We must revolt! Demand them to make it for you and tell them to restore its proper place on the menu!

    This place is awesome! A bit pricy but well worth for the size and goodness of the tacos you get! I order #11 #12 and two #2s! The #12 was the best! Enjoy!

    Tacos are amazing. 3.5 is DELISH. So is the calamari taco, gawd. Margaritas are very good, and the cake.. God lord, it's delicious.

    Secrets: You can get anything on a lettuce wrap, ask for everything w lite sauce (including the yummy elote), and just one margarita will get you nice and happy! ; )

    If you're a purist, you should probably move along, but if you're open-minded, Velvet Taco completely obliterates taco convention. Read more

    Pay attention to the fish tacos. If you don't like fish, go for the beef. If you don't like tacos, worth going for the side dishes.

    If you bring $20 cash to the back door, they'll bring you enough rotisserie chicken and fixins to fee 2-3. In a bag. To go.

    Serves one heck of a lettuce-wrapped gem called the Ahi Poke. Asian in persuasion, this taco is spicy, crunchy and light.
