We had a great meal at Bartaco! The ordering system is unique and suffice. The food came out quickly and was full of flavor. Our server was nice and even the manager came over to check on us. Always a good move. The atmosphere is open and lively. Definitely pay a visit to Bartaco next time you are in Stamford!

Visited during Santacon and found it to be a friendly and spirited adventure. Service was quick and helpful. Food was tasty and very flavorful though maybe a little heavy on the cilantro. Portions did seem a tad on the skimpy side even for tapas. Will definitely do again.

Three of us ate here last week before Thanksgiving. The food was better than expected and the atmosphere is casual and friendly. The beer menu was good but not great, however it is my understanding that they are in the process of adding quite a few more local craft beers to their selection. Overall a very enjoyable evening and we'll... More

The tacos are good - real good. In some cases, they're actually AustinGood™. And no, I'm not kidding - the duck tacos are really just that good. And the cauliflower ones are (surprisingly!) good, with an excellent combination of textures and flavors. Oh, the jalapeno hot-sauce is almost picklish in it's vinegarosity (in an excellent way).

Bartaco is a fun place for a weekend night. Good for a bar scene, and has good food. Don't expect anything great if you're looking for great food. It will be fine for what it is. However, bartaco is a fun place for locals. I cannot say that I would recommend dining here if you are visiting. You can find... More

We found ourselves unexpectedly in Stamford for dinner on a Monday evening and we selected the Bartaco since it was very conveniently located for us. There are many other eating spots around this area, but yet, we found this place quite full. The selection of tacos is not extensive but adequate. We ordered tacos on lettuce the first time around,... More

After many visits to this location and Port Chester, we had dinner with a friend's child for the first time. They looked after him and have a limited but nice childrens menu.

We frequent this Bar Taco and have great service every time. The tequila options are vast with lots of good quality choices. The guacamole is always fresh and by far the pork belly Tacos are unlike anything else in Stamford! Top Notch!
