Late Night Tacos At Xolo Taqueria in Oakland

August 20, 2014 4:01 pm

Have late night hunger in Uptown Oakland? Xolo Taqueria is open until midnight Friday and Saturday. Although the menu is simple the flavors are anything but boring. Regulars crave their shrimp tacos, and the “Vampiro” with al pastor and a fried cheese tortilla is another favorite. They are on the small side, so its recommended you order two to three.

Vegetarians and vegans will appreciate clearly marked options for them, like the “hongos” taco with crimini mushrooms. In addition to tacos and burritos, consider Xolo’s specialties like the danger dog – a bacon wrapped hot dog with mayo, mustard, pinto beans, cheese, pickled jalapenos and avocado wrapped in a flour tortilla. Save room for a homemade churro for dessert. Xolo has a large space including an upstairs loft with a view of Uptown, and a back patio for quiet and secluded lunch.
