Places to Spend Taco Tuesday in Buffalo

LETS TACO ‘BOUT TACOS!  Let’s be honest here- if you ever meet someone that does not appreciate a good taco, do you really trust them? Buffalo is very lucky to have some wonderful places to spend Taco Tuesday.  Feel free to try all of them- there is a total of 5 on our list today which means that you should be set starting Monday to have tacos until Friday. We’re just going to say you’re welcome in advance.

Deep South Taco
WIth two locations there is almost no excuse to not have been to this wonderful place yet. The tacos are absolutely wonderful. The newer one being on Hertel Avenue, it is always a fun time no matter which you go to. The possibilities are endless here! With everything from tacos, to burritos, to nachos, to the BEST guacamole in Buffalo it is fair to say that if you leave here hungry it is 100% your own fault. The tacos all come in handmade corn tortilla shells and there are so many options that there is something for everyone. One we thing we have to tell you about is the Three Cheese Tequila Queso. I mean, if we are being honest here- anything with Tequila sounds like a fun time but this queso dip will knock your socks off.

Colosso Taco
Let’s just start off by saying that their tacos are actually colossal. Located in North Tonawanda, with another location opening soon in Niagara Falls, they have proven that they know what they are doing. If you ever find yourself in either of those areas go check them out. What’s even better about them- they are open late, just as late as our last call. Their tacos come in three sizes to cater to what type of hunger you’re having that day- small, large, or super. You can basically do anything you want to them to fit your taste buds. One personal favorite is the classic chicken taco. Unlike other places in Buffalo, Colosso uses almost a roasted chicken over ground chicken and it makes it taste a little fresher. It’s actually a place that is perfect for everyone. They offer pizza and wings and also have a chicken finger taco that everyone should have once. You’re mixing to amazing foods together- why wouldn’t you try that!

LLoyds Tacos
Starting off as a food truck only a few years ago, Lloyds is probably one of the most well
Taco places in Buffalo. The food is all hormone free and you can taste it. What makes Lloyds so great is that the Lloyds truck always seems to turn up when you need it the most. For example- when it is parked on Allen at 2 am and you smell those tacos just coming towards you- it is pure bliss. The minute you taste what it is that burrito it just feels right. Tacos can be very generic, but Lloyds has taken one of the most beloved foods in the world and made it their own. Which in turn means you can make it your own. If you have not eaten here yet, you are doing a disservice to yourself.

Elmwood Tacos & Subs (ETS)
ETS is THE spot to go to on Elmwood when you want food. Nothing else compares. Especially those waffle fries? Come on. Seriously, it is a favorite among most people living in the area. Their tacos just taste so fresh. You can literally taste how fresh their ingredients are. If you have ever watched any cooking show you probably know that the most important thing to give customers is fresh food over everything frozen.  That is exactly what you’re getting here. Their tacos are a good size portion, they taste fantastic, and it is the best place on Elmwood Avenue when you’re looking for your weekly taco splurge.

Mighty Taco
You can’t have a list about tacos without including Mighty if you live in Buffalo. It is a Buffalo classic. Most people in Buffalo will have some serious debates over Mighty Taco over Taco Bell and overall, at least in Buffalo, Mighty Taco always prevails. Wherever you go, there’s bound to be a Mighty right by you. With everything from traditional beef tacos, to fish tacos, to pork barbeque tacos, one of the best things about Mighty is that there is usually something new all the time. They try to stay current. However, personal favorite will always be a hard shell taco, with ground beef and medium sauce. It is literally the perfect crunch and combination of ingredients.

Tacos will always be a classic favorite for most people. Buffalo is no exception. Our favorite part about the places we listed is that they have taken a favorite that everyone knows how to make and they have made it their own. Hopefully we have given you a few more ideas in case there was one included that you have not heard of yet. Buffalo is like a hidden gem of food that most people in the world have never heard of and we’re happy we get to eat here all the time! If you are interested in eating as much Buffalo food as possible, it is probably time to think about moving here. Red Door Real Estate is opening doors all over WNY, we want to help you open yours!

5 Tips for People Relocating to Buffalo

Buffalo wears many hats- everyone who lives here knows that. We’re a drinking town, a blue collar city, and the hidden food capital of the world. It is really a wonderful place to move to and settle down with a family. There is no shortage of things to do here no matter the season. Buffalo has a lot to offer anyone from all 4 seasons, to seriously quality food there is something for everyone here. Here are some tips we put together for people thinking about living in the nickel city.

1-The Winters are not something we joke about   
One thing for sure- the winters here are pretty notorious. Every few years there is a big storm or two so having a warm jacket that is actually warm is one of the most vital things you can own here in the Queen City. Also- living through one of these storms is kind of a rite of passage. The storms are still talked about years after at almost every family event ever and anytime it snows there will be stories from years past about the infamous ‘Blizzard of ‘77’ which everyone will never forget about. Our tip- invest in a few things: a good pair of touch screen gloves, a high quality snow brush, a snow removal service and nice boots. You will thank us later. If you have never experience the high amount of snow here- learn to love it fast!

2: Buffalo is actually pretty affordable
Compared to most cities of its size, Buffalo has pretty good prices. The housing market is affordable and although unemployment is kind of high (6.7% as of April 2017) Buffalo is going through resurgence. With so many new businesses coming into the area there are so many opportunities rising. The cost of living in Buffalo is 23% or so lower than it is in NYC. The average cost of utilities compared to the rest of the country is average. However- Buffalo ranks as 154 out of 520 of affordable cities to live in. You can get a city feel for cheaper than you would in other places.

3: Try ALL the food
Buffalo has some really famous food here and if you are relocating we heavily encourage you to try ALL of it. Yes- this is this the home and birthplace of the famous Buffalo Chicken Wing and you can honestly taste the difference. Even if you are just here for a weekend make it a point to visit The Anchor Bar which is the birthplace or Duff’s -equally a favorite here. Sponge Candy is something you should also try as we are one of the only places in the world you can make it! Teds, Mighty Taco, beef on weck, Andersons, Jim’s steak out, are only a few of the Buffalo favorites.  Do some research and you will find out not only where Buffalonians eat but also just how much we love food. We LOVE food. Lastly, eat pizza at local restaurants not at chains here and you can also thank us for that tip later. The pizza here is different and tastes better than any chain ever will.

4: The City of Good Neighbors
This is just one of our nicknames. It really is not that difficult to meet people here because most people are genuinely happy and nice people. Most people will find themselves in one of a few areas over the weekend- Allen or Elmwood, Hertel Avenue,  or in North Tonawanda at the few bars on the main area. Go to one, sit down and we guarantee someone will start a conversation. Also a good place to meet people is Canalside.  Canalside is one of the newest installations in the Buffalo boom and everyone loves it. There is always something going on there- from yoga classes to movie nights. Trying to get involved there will probably lead to some friendships in the future.

5: We have A LOT of pride in Buffalo Sports teams
It doesn’t matter how bad or how good the Buffalo Bills do- there will still be a crowd of screaming fans in the New Era stadium every Sunday. The same goes for the Sabres. It does not matter how many Superbowls the Bills have last (which honestly we are still salty about) Buffalonians will always show extreme pride in their sports. One topic to avoid at dinner parties- The New England Patriots. Most people hate them, even the people that don’t follow football. If you’re going to tailgate at a Bills game be prepared to view some of the most serious tailgaters in all of the NFL. We don’t mess around.

Buffalo is an amazing place that can offer a lot to really anyone looking to relocate here. From aspiring young college graduates, to older people looking to live somewhere different Buffalo can probably offer you what you’re looking for. Anywhere you are- you’re really only about 20 minutes away from the city or the country. We have a lot of pride here about our city- no matter how many losses are teams may have, no matter how many feet of snow we get, the people of Buffalo really love Buffalo. And who knows? Maybe you’ll be one of us soon! If you are interested in relocating to Buffalo please give us a call at 716-768-1177. We are opening doors all over WNY- let us help you open yours!
