Taco Tuesday in Tucson: El Chicharrón Tacos at El Berraco

“Taco Tuesday in Tucson” is a column where we explore the unique tacos stands throughout Tucson… on Tuesdays.

Chances are you’ve seen a shiny structure — a submarine-like building glistening in the sun — while driving down First Avenue just past Glenn Street.

Hopefully, you immediately pulled over because once you walk through the doors of El Berraco you’ll feel like a sea captain waiting to down some crave-worthy Latin seafood.

When it comes to El Berraco’s menu, it’s swimming with items such as grilled oysters, seafood tostadas, mussels, and plenty of other fish under the sea, and eye-catching seafood towers. However, don’t overlook the delicious taco section of the menu.

The El Chicharrón Tacos are quite a catch with its battered and deep-fried octopus, topped with chuqui salsa and cilantro — muy caliente, indeed.
