Tacontento in SOBE - I really like it

I am no expert on mexican or tacos but this place is significantly better than rancho grande and would be my first choice for a mexican meal in south beach. It is also lighter than rancho grande so you can probably eat there more often.

I recommend the tacos, they were very good, their tortillas are homemade btw.

I did not love the signature app of the grilled cheese log though but it was ok (I love almost anything with cheese btw so let this be a warning that I just thought it was ok).

I also recommend their signature dessert which is also homemade. It is sweet cheese in a tortilla with strawberry sauce. I really enjoyed it.

BTW you can walk through the 701 building on lincoln rd and you will see it on the other side. They also said they will start delivery in about a month for those who are interested.

    I thought it was just OK. Nicely decorated, good ambience and friendly, attentive managers. My server unfortunately wasn't as good, which is bothersome when the restaurant decides to automatically add a 15% tip to the bill. The food was good, but nothing special, it seemed a little dumbed down and inauthentic (I ordered a combo taco platter for 2). Not a bad value and not a bad time, but I'm not enthusiastic about returning.

      "log" is rarely a very appetizing word.

        "Better than Rancho Grande" is very very mucho funny!

        We found TacoDisContento mighty hard to love but since I respect you/r palate I'll imagine that perhaps they have experienced a miracle since our visit 2 weeks ago. Our meal was funny/sad/funny/bland/awkward and then we got the bill and stopped laughing.

        Best on the Beach - huh? (scratching head)

          I mentioned this place to some friends who live on the beach and their report back was similar to yours AG. Guess I'll be waiting to try this place.
