Don Taco Tequila Bar, formerly Flat Iron Steak House, officially opened on March 7, 2016 in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. The Mexican themed restaurant is located at 808 King Street.
They are now open for both lunch and dinner and stay open late.
Prior to the event, I had to give their restaurant a try for lunch today. It was awesome. I ordered the guacamole with chips as an appetizer. The guac was great and the chips were fresh and crisp.
I ordered the lunch course next. The tacos come in a exceptional variety of flavors. I tried the pork belly and pomegranate glazed skirt steak. The tacos were delicious. They are served with a corn tortilla as opposed to a flour tortilla.
I also had a margarita with my lunch which was extremely tasty. I’d have to say it is the best in Old Town. Perhaps it is the best because they use quality tequila, use fresh squeezed lime juice versus sweet and sour mix, and utilize agave as a hint of sweetness instead of simple syrup.
Andrea was the lunch time bartender. She was friendly, personable, and on time all the time with ordering, plate set up, food delivery and mixing drinks. The bar was full and she was not frazzled in the least. She was superb.
Pictured below are photographs of the menu whereby you order sort of “sushi/tapas style” by picking what and how many of each delectable dish you would like. The cocktail menu and happy hour menu are also included in the photos.
