Taco Vazquez is a restaurant inside of the Sunmart gas station
in Estero, FL. I was intrigued by this place not only for the kudos it has received but by it's interesting location.
As you walk into the Sunmart gas station you will encounter Taco Vazquez.
They do not have a website or an updated social media page, so here is their menu.
The first thing I noticed were the salsas, the majority made in house.
Here was the lineup from left to right. A Pasilla chili, tomatillo and avocado salsa, the latter still having an avocado pit in it which I thought was a nice touch. A commercially made Valentina hot sauce was also available. The former 3 salsas were fantastic and were made in house. The idea is to bring these to the table as samples.
DC and I ordered a number of things which were over the top delicious and an unbelievable value.
DC and I finished off with a couple of things.
I ordered the steak burrito.
This was great as it had no rice or beans in it and accommodated a somewhat carbohydrate-averse diner such as my self. There was about 1/2 pound of beef, with onions, cheese, cabbage, cilantro and tomato salsa. Excellent and less that $6.00.
DC ordered the Carne Asada plate.
This was also excellent with steak, rice and beans, tortillas and grilled green onions and jalapeno.
I have dined at many places in Southwest Florida but this venue is unique and an unbelievable value with very good food. Highly recommended. You may even want to get your food to go. After all, Koreshan State Historic Site is just down the road.
