Amigos Tortilla Bar is home of the square taco and the next stop in our travel series to Key West, Florida. Now I've never met a tortilla - round or square that I didn't like OR eat. The corn tortillas here are made from scratch at the front of the restaurant behind a glass wall. I ordered a Three Taco Platter ($10.99) served with rice and beans (above). They let you mix up the combination so you can try all the different meats.
The food itself is fast, fresh and delicious. The portions are huge - so be prepared to share. Amigos is open until midnight or later everyday, so it's the perfect stop after the bar with its location right off Duval Street. Have serious munchies? Start with an order of their Guacamole & Chips ($4.99) which also come with a side of pico de gallo. Amigos serves imported Mexican Coke ($2.25) that's made with cane sugar and not corn syrup and it tastes completely different. Almost fizzier and less sweet.
Where the magic happens. The tortilla bar (above).
Not starving? Single Tacos are available from $2.99 or $3.99 each with options like shredded beef, chicken, carnitas, chorizo potatoes, bean or veggie. Premium fillings include short ribs, carne asada, fish, shrimp or philly cheesesteak. All tacos are served with lettuce, cheese, cilantro and salsa. If you're not big on tacos, Amigos has a big selection of burritos, taco salads, nachos, soups and fajitas.
Hot sauce city! If you're a fan, there's a huge selection available for your own personal taste test. Amigos is a cheap, delicious and easy night out. Grab a bar stool with a view of the party on Duval street and stay awhile. Make sure to stop in next time you're in Key West.
