In recent months, plenty of new taco places have popped up in Mississauga creating greater competition and excellent tacos. YourSauga now boasts some of the best taco shops on this side of Mexico City.

What’s the big deal about Taco Tuesday? Not much except tacos are priced below their regular price on Tuesdays. Just like we searched for chicken wing specials, we now shop around for the best Taco Tuesday deal. Taco Tuesday is great for bars and other establishments. They are easy and cheap to make, making them an inexpensive meal. Tuesday typically is a slow day for restaurants and having a taco special is a great way to kick off the start of the week.

Who started Taco Tuesday? It is hard to say, since Taco Tuesday has been around for along time and like the famous chicken wing, everyone makes a claim.

This week YourSauga is featuring Hermanos Mexican Grill, 61 Lakeshore Road East in Port Credit. Tacos are individually sold or as most of their clients do, you can go for the three-pack at $10. On Taco Tuesday, you save the tax as these tacos are conveniently priced at an even $10 for three.

You have your choice of a corn or flour tortilla, chicken (spicy barbeque, or chicken with pineapple onion salsa or chicken tinga), pulled pork, barbacoa, chorizo or fish. All options are excellent, but beware the chorizo is a little salty. The baja fish with chipotle slaw and radish was our favourite. You can easily mix or match.

Limited seating, so grab your tacos and head down to the water and enjoy the Port Credit waterfront.
