All YOU CAN EAT Taco Tuesdays, at Avilas El Ranchito in Newport Beach
Newport Beach, CA 92663
Taco Tuesday starts at 5pm and gets reaaally crowded after 6pm so GET THERE EARLY or else you will be stuck standing the whole time and that is not fun when you're trying to savor your food. After 6pm, the parking meters are free...but if you get there early enough they have a parking lot in the back.
Taco Tuesdays is 21 and over, so sorry to the kids! Cash only at the AYCE taco bar, but plastic accepted at the restaurant.
Have your cash and ID ready when you enter. They'll give you a wristband and the taco buffet offers the following:
-Shredded Beef Tacos: The best thing here, relatively juicy with a mix of bell peppers and onions.
-Chicken Tacos: Chunks of chicken with the same mix of bell peppers and onions.
-Bean and Cheese Burritos: OK
-Beef Taquitos: Pretty good but a bit dry
-Chicken and Rice Burrito - Eh, No Bueno
At around 9 pm, the restaurant clears the tables and turns it into a dance club. Lots of young college types frequent Taco Tuesdays, so be prepared for plenty of noise and people!
