The taco game is tough for business owners in Miami. With so many taco stands, Mexican restaurants, and food trucks it's hard to stand out. But, El Santo is that hole-in-the-wall Mexican eatery with the most Instagrammable decor you will ever find.
This spot is a foodie's dream. From the outside, the restaurant looks a bit deceiving. You don't know if it's a one-stop shop or the facade of a church. The moment you step inside you will notice floor-to-ceiling colorful tiles, religious tchotchkes, a Mexican flag, many crosses and the cutest topping bar.
The menu features $5 beers, sides, seven different kind of tacos such as short rib and mojo pork, and 'antojitos'. Yelp reviewers have currently named this place as best street-style tacos in Miami for its price, quality, and numerous sauces.
The little taco spot has big rewards from margaritas and beer "colder than your ex's heart" and quality service. The decor features Mexican Lucha Libre, a candle with saints and even El Chapo.
If you're looking for a unique place to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, don't look any further. You can get two tacos for $5 and great music during the weekends. Definitely, a place that will not disappoint. If you bring your girlfriend on Tuesday you get 20% off.
