The winner for Best New Restaurant, Mexican Restaurant, and Menu Item goes to Tulio's Tacos!

This contest was almost a foregone conclusion as Tulio's Tacos and Tequila has been a hit since it batted it out of the park on opening day.  And it’s only gotten better since then. The friendly, saucy, servers wear pants so tight you can almost read their… hips. That only adds to the charm, as does the large sidewalk café. The people-watching is good, but not as good as the cuisine, which focuses on its namesake food and drink.  

Not only did Tulio’s Tacos and Tequila take the prize for the Best New Restaurant, but it managed to knock La Bamba off the perch to win Best Mexican restaurant. It also won the coveted “Best Menu Item” for its Lobster Tulio. The dish features chilled lobster, corn salsa, diced avocado, and microgreens topped with Tulio’s remoulade sauce and served in a flour tortilla. The expansive array of tequila, Mexican beer, and sodas are the perfect accompaniment to the tasty fare.
