Welcome to Taco y Vino, home of the best tacos in Dallas. Proven by the fact, they received the ‘Best New Restaurant’ award by Culture Map of Dallas!
Jimmy renovated a craftsman home and transformed it into a restaurant. Located in the the Bishop Arts Historical District, the Dallas Historical Society wanted the home to be preserved. In addition to preserving the historical standards of the craftsman home, Jimmy selected Sherwin William’s habanero red paint for the signature windows, designed and built picnic tables, added a turntable and a stack of his favorite vinyls . . . everything came together resulting in a charming restaurant!
Growing up in south Texas, Jimmy learned to cook at an early age. Fast forward a few years, volunteering at Chefs For Farmers, Jimmy met Chef Sharon Von Meter and a steadfast friendship was made. Three years ago, Jimmy with his professional wine expertise and Chef Sharon Von Meter, a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, France created Taco y Vino.The rest, as they say, is history!
With the same meticulous attention to detail in restoring the Bishops Arts District’s home, Jimmy pairs wines with delicious tacos. Choose from eight proteins, mix and match however you like.
Taco y Vino is the place to take your out-of-town friends. It is memorable and they’ll come back!
