By Yasmene Warren

We took a trip to Talkin’ Tacos, and believe it or not, the food had a lot to say. If you’re on the prowl for fantastic Mexican finds, then look no further at this restaurant in SoDo.

Talkin’ About Talkin’ Tacos

Dubbing themselves as the “best tacos in America,” Talkin’ Tacos is a taco chain located on South Orange Avenue in SoDo Orlando, and it opened its doors just last month.

This chain has many locations across Florida, as well as one in Atlanta, Georgia. You can find good eats in Florida cities like Miami, with more restaurants in Brickell and Wynwood, Miramar, Wellington, Coral Springs, Doral, and Jacksonville.

Talkin’ Tacos mainly serves the food in its name: tacos. Outside of its tacos, this restaurant offers hearty entrées, savory sides and salsas, fruity drinks, and sugary desserts.

Try it all for yourself every day from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

You can order your typical side of fries or chips, or you can opt for sweet plantains, Mexican rice, sweet corn in a cup and more.

For those picky eaters out there, Talkin’ Tacos also serves quesadillas and chicken tenders with fries.

Dessert can include churros — with or without cookies ‘n cream — tres leches cake, and dulce de leche cheesecake.

You can sip on Coke products — including Mexican Coke — Jarritos, and house juices. We tried the strawberry dragonfruit house juice, and it sent our taste buds on a one-way trip to Flavortown.

The Atmosphere

Surrounded by low lighting and neon wall art, Talkin’ Tacos is nothing short of a lively dining environment.

From the walls to the ceilings, down to the tables you’re feasting from, find vibrant Mexican artwork reminiscent of Dia de los Muertos.
