Nestled in Downtown’s historic Sweeney, Coombs and Fredericks Building, Dizzy Kaktus opened in late 2016, bringing a wide assortment of globally-inspired tacos to the bustling Downtown area.
Set along the METRORail, the casual corner restaurant does bang up business for breakfast, lunch and dinner, along with late-night on the weekends. Inside, the space feels part hacienda, part grotto with stone-wrapped groin vault ceilings, stucco walls and warm hardwoods throughout, offset by primary-colored metal dining tables and chairs that help infuse a lively vibe overall.
On the wallet-friendly menu, favorites like the chorizo way taco and migas con frito shine at breakfast, while more creative options like The Elvis—a fried pork chop taco that’s tossed in sweet chili and sriracha lime—emerge later in the day. Stop in for happy hour, offered Monday through Friday, for discounted margaritas, sangria and beer.
