Tacos Don Regio

With so few reviews, your opinion of Tacos Don Regio could be huge. Start your review today. There’s no tables but they have a bar attached that you can set your plate on and eat standing at. They only sell steak tacos, which I don’t like… so not surprisingly I didn’t like this place. I thought maybe they’d be the best steak tacos I’d ever encountered… but not so much. They only serve steak tacos period, no tortas or other types of food. For such intense specialization I expected it to be amazing but it just wasn’t good. I couldn’t see myself going back.
