Bartaco Family Friendly Tampa Eats Hot Spot

Food, Fun With Kids, Tampa

This might sound corn-y, but I have something I must Taco bout…Bartaco. I often find myself on the hunt for family friendly Tampa eats that will be a great fit to our party of five. Somewhere that serves food family style, has a relaxed environment, coloring books as a plus and an air that says you won’t get eye rolls here if your kids are enjoying themselves. Bartaco is a perfect match to those requirements, but the best part is the flavor packed food. Apologizing in advance for making you drool, but great things are worth sharing with friends right?!

This location is located in Hyde Park Village in the Soho district of Tampa and it couldn’t be a more beautiful part of town to walk around as a family in. You can visit the fountains to let the kids make a few wishes or peek at the quaint shops as you stroll. There are also lots of fun walls to grab momento pictures of the littles with Daddy. By the way, isn’t he rocking those sneaks and comfy jogger pants from Tommy John? I need to step up my mom style game and join the likes of his handsome self.

After you’ve worked up an appetite on your leisurely walk, Bartaco is there to give you a family friendly foodie experience you’re sure to leave fulfilled in more ways than one. We chose to sit on the outdoor patio space with lots of beautiful plants and a low table with cute cushion seats to enjoy. You order on their menu sheets, so of course the kids loved helping me check off what we wanted to get in our tummies. Give a kid a coloring book and a cute kids’ cup with a bendy straw and voila–no tears or jumping beans at the table.

Then, the side of Bartaco that keeps mommy and daddy extra happy–the food. Not only does it look gorgeous, it tastes the same. The guac rocks, the poke bowl is divine, the ginger tea is refreshing. The tacos, oh the tacos–to include a food item in your name, it’d better be amazing and they definitely do not disappoint.  They have a secret menu item that involves crusted avocado or other unique selections like their falafel, rock shrimp or mushroom tacos. The day to day favorites like carnitas, sesame ribeye and fish are superb as well. Then, you guys, my I-could-live-off-these side dish–the plantains. The sauce literally makes your mouth get a TKO boom of flavor that you leave wishing you could take a gallon with you. Not joking. If you never listen to another single thing I say, listen to this, get those glorious plantains.

You know when you dine with little ones, they always have dessert on the brain. Frankly, I can’t blame them when you bring churros in a cute cup with chocolate sauce. It was a perfect way to cap off our meal in the perfect setting.
