taco & quesadillas

New to the Brandywine Hundred, Wilmington, I have been hunting for a good taco place for some late night food hits the spot, where it adds more meat and not so much onions & cilantro; or quesadillas that got a good amount of cheese and don't skimp on the meat either. For now, I'll just have to settle for some childhood memories ..

  1. Try out El Toro. Best Quesadillas in the area.

    (302) 777-4417
    624 N Union St
    Wilmington, DE 19805

    El Toro

    1. I second el toro, very good food. El Pique is a hole in the wall that stole my heart. Excellent tacos and very cheap. Burrito Bandido is another spot in the same vicinity as El Pique. Tijuana taco shop on Lacaster Ave has some interesting selections too. I especially like the flautas and anything with chorizo.

      El Pique
      500 S. DuPont Road (approximately)
      Wilmington, DE 19804

      Tijuana Taco Shop
      1815 Lancaster Ave
      Wilmington, DE 19805

      Burrito Bandido
      227 North Maryland Avenue
      Wilmington, DE 19804

      1. This old-but-still-valid post should be helpful on the taco question:

        I don't know about quesadillas, or the late-night-ness of any of these places, but that should be easy enough to find out.

          all these places sounds great! im gonna spend this weekend try at least one of them.

          Do miss my childhood kitchen! My parents were the type of couple who liked to take the time to think of the textures, and flavors, and make them something special at the kitchen table, any day of the week.
