Some of the best local food in Martin County can be found in downtown Stuart, where the Taco Shack is located just a few hundred feet from the beautiful intercostal. Home of the famous “Taco Queen”, the Taco Shack offers what they call “gourmet tacos with a twist” that is served in schoolyard-inspired paper bowls, from 11-9 mon-sat. Most of their menu is, if you can imagine, tacos. Mexican, tex-mex, and vegetarian are some of the taco varieties included on the menu, along with chili and the more traditional Bunuelos for dessert. My personal favorite is the Da Philly, a delicious combination of braised skirt steak, queso, lettuce, onions (although I tend to pick those off) and a candied jalapeno on top, for $5.55. Besides the food The Taco Shack is pet and kid friendly, with an easygoing atmosphere and live music from local artists. Whether you want a quick meal, or a place to relax with your family, The Taco Shack is the place to go.
