Taste unique tacos at a new location in South Buffalo
If you love tacos, there’s a new place for very unique tacos in South Buffalo. The owners lost their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic, but transferred their losses to a new business. Dominick and Azrael Buster are the owners, who put the “D” and the “A” in DA Tacos. It is located in the former Jacobi’s Southside Family restaurant building at 140 Abbott Road in South Buffalo. The restaurant offers tacos like a Chipotle BLT Taco, Flaming Cheetos Taco, Beef Birria Taco, and Nashville Fried Chicken Taco. Owners were featured on WIVB today, Sunday March 6, 2022.

10 Weird Buffalo Tacos You’re Probably Not Crazy Enough To Try
These tacos range from weird to “not for the faint of heart.” Although I love Mexican food, the only connection some of these tacos have with Mexico is the tortilla shell. Would you like to try a tripe taco? If you don’t know what tripe is, you’ll discover later in this article that it’s probably not your cup of tea. That’s over the top, but for someone who lived in a border state (Arizona), even a tuna salad taco is an odd enough topping to make the list. Check out the places in and around Buffalo that have the weirdest tacos in Western New York below:
1. Bacon Tacos
TOCINO Crispy thick cut smoked bacon, chili mayo, shredded lettuce, salsa fresca, marinated onion, jalapeño, cilantro
While a bacon taco isn’t the weirdest taco on the list, it’s definitely not a taco filling you can find anywhere like chicken or ground beef. Deep South Taco is where you can find it.
2. Scorpion Tacos
Also available at Deep South Taco is the Scorpion taco, which is described as the “hottest in the world”,
Red scorpion pepper chicken, ghost pepper cheese, habanero slaw, diced jalapeño, scorpion pepper dust, cilantro, served a la luchador with mashed beans.
You can visit their website for more taco options. There are two Deep South Taco locations at WNY – 291 Ellicott St, Buffalo, NY 14203 and 1707 Hertel Ave, Buffalo, NY 14216. Both can be reached by calling (716) 235-8464.
3. Tripa Tacos
Described on the menu at La Divina Tacos as a “gut” taco, this is not your ordinary taco filling. While “tripe” is a delicacy in many cultures, most Americans don’t like to eat it. It will cost you $4 per taco.
4. taco tongue
Also available at La Divina Tacos, this is a beef tongue taco. I don’t really eat beef, but I can still think of about 10 other parts of the cow that I would rather eat than its tongue. This taco is also $4. La Divina is located at 2896 Delaware Ave, Buffalo, NY 14217. You can call them at (716) 447-8989 or visit their website for more information.
5. Aloha Shrimp
We’ve ventured into the weirdest of the weird, so let’s boil it down to “just a little weird”. The Aloha Shrimp Taco looks delicious over rice, but I would never have thought of putting it in a tortilla. Available at Lloyd Taco Factory, it is made up of,
Crispy Coconut Shrimp Piña Colada Sauce Cilantro Rice Pineapple Salsa
Lloyd Taco Factory has two locations – 1503 Hertel Ave, Buffalo, NY 14216 and 5933 Main St. Williamsville, NY 14221. Both locations can be reached at (716) 863-9781 or via Whereslloyd.com.
6. tuna tacos
We’ve strayed so far from what Mexican food is. This taco is oddly gross to me. If I’m not mistaken, Jim’s basically takes the same tuna mix used in their subs and puts it in a taco. Jim’s tacos remind me of Jack-n-the-Box tacos (not the top echelon). The characteristics of the tuna taco,
Tuna mix with cheese, lettuce and tomatoes on a soft flour tortilla
Sounds much better between two pieces of bread, but if it floats your fishing boat, you can pick it up at any location in Jim. You can visit Jim website for more “taco” options.
I love Greek food but never thought of it as a taco topping. This is where me and Tacos, Community & Beer differ. They have a Greek Falafel taco which is filled with Falafel, Tzatziki, spinach, feta cheese and red onion. It will cost you $5.45.
8. Johnny’s Buffalo Chicken
Also available from TCB is a topping made from the food Buffalo is known for – wings. The Buffalo Chicken Taco includes shredded chicken, diced carrots and celery, blue cheese and hot sauce. It’s perfect for game day, when wings just aren’t enough and only adding tortillas to the mix can take things to the next level. Buffalo Chicken Tacos are $4.50 each.
9. tuna sashimi
Tacos, Community & Beer, located at 6449 Transit Rd, East Amherst, NY 14051, has a menu full of weird tacos, including this Asian-inspired taco. This taco filling seems more appropriate suishi. It is made with lightly seared tuna, wasabi aioli and pineapple-mango salsa. It costs $6.45. TCB can be reached at (716) 458-0380 or you can visit their website.
ten. Crab Tacos
Seafood lovers, if Baja fish tacos aren’t for you anymore, why not try a crab taco? I never imagined crab being paired with corn or flour tortillas, but Stevo did. You can try it at 6811 Erie Road, Derby, NY 14047. Visit Stevo’s website for more or call (716) 947-9146.
