Mercadito : All-You-Can-Eat Tacos

Hello 'Hounders,

Has anyone tried the all-you-can-eat taco nights at Mercadito? I generally dig their food but ... I have a pretty massive appetite and was wondering how the deal works in practice.

I already know that everyone at the table has to go in on the special. Beyond that, is the deal worth it?

For example, do you end up waiting forever for the next round so that at most you're only getting six tacos within two hours? Does the wait staff start visibly hating your guts if you take it beyond two rounds?

Thanks much.

  1. If you have a decent sized group with a decent sized appetite it's a great deal. Unfortunately, whenever I go with the intentions of getting the all you can eat, the other menu items distract me and I end up ordering too many appetizers. But if ALL you want is tacos, they bring them reasonably fast, and since the place usually isn't too crowded on the Mon or Tues that they offer the deal, the waitstaff has always been just as friendly when I've gone in for round number four.
