Located on the rapidly gentrifying Industrial Street, Fuzzy's Taco Shop is across the street from Hot Box pizza. Yeah. I promise.
Anyway, ignore the sub- sophomoric name(s) and come in for the schooners of tap beer. At $2.25 for domestics and $3.25 for imports, they are the real stars of the show. Oh, and does ‘import” mean they have Dos Equis on tap? Well yes, yes it does my dear.
And you know what a schooner is, right?
They’re those squatty goblets with bowls the size of your head that weigh as much as a new born baby… and they’re filled-with-ice-cold-beer!!
I would have said the tacos are ish, but they really do grow on you.
In fact, thinking about it, I would say all the food there has grown on me, and the pulled pork tacos ($1.99) are actually really good. I usually get the aforementioned pulled pork soft taco, with a soft grilled fish taco ($1.99) or two.
I used to get them habenero style, but I’ve had to back off that. I don’t know if I was tougher a few months ago, of if they’ve amped up the blend, but that habenero sauce is now nearly atomic. It will cause your whole mouth to burn, and possibly your lips to swell.
On the other hand, in your other hand there should be an ice-cold schooner of beer, so maybe you don’t care.
The significant other is a fool for the beef fajitas ($7.99), with the Latin potatoes.
We can’t figure out what makes them Latin, but they ARE good. Like the best home fries you’ve ever had, and surprisingly well matched to the fajitas.
We’ve tried both the borracho beans (nice) and the refried beans (creamy and comforting), but no other sides.
You know, I guess that means we’re pretty comfortable there, with what we’ve got.
That’s a recommendation, isn’t it?
And did I mention Fuzzy’s is right next door to Dan’s Silver Leaf, making it the perfect spot for a quick meal and fortifying beer pre- or après show?
So, you could make a real night of it, down on Industrial.
One last thing, they also have a ‘patio’. It’s not the least bit scenic, and it’s all picnic tables, but you can dine and drink outside, while enjoying the sun, breeze, and al fresco companions.
Swing by, you have nothing to lose, and a possibly a new watering hole to gain.
