Next time you're headed out to historic King Street, consider stopping by Don Taco for a drink or a bite to eat. This popular Alexandria destination specializes in fresh Mexican fare, including house-made guacamole, two dozen different taco varieties, and plenty of cerveza and sangria.
If you stop by for the restaurant's unique late-night happy hour, which runs from 10 p.m. to midnight on weeknights, you'll be able to choose from various half-off and buy-two-get-one-free deals. Pair a crisp lager with a trio of barbacoa tacos, or go for a margarita and a carnitas rice bowl. Keep in mind that this place is also a local brunch destination, thanks to a menu featuring Mexican-inspired dishes like overstuffed breakfast burritos, chipotle eggs benedict, and mini breakfast tacos filled with chorizo sausage and roasted corn. If you’re in the mood for a boozy brunch, you might be interested in the spicy bloody Marys, which you can order in both roja and verde versions.
