Fodor's Expert Review Tia Cori's Tacos

$ Daytona Beach Mexican

Mexican street food is the specialty at this tiny, counter-service eatery in the downtown riverfront shopping district. The namesake tacos come Mexican style (with onion, cilantro, and lime), but for 50¢ more you can get an Americanized version with cheese. Fillings range from the familiar (chicken, steak, carnitas) to the less familiar (including beef tongue and spicy pork skin). Lines can get long during lunch hour, when surfers, college students, and the downtown business crowd converge for fresh, tasty, and cheap eats. The generously filled Mexican tacos are $1.50 apiece, and margaritas are only $5. Indoor and outdoor seating is available, and a mariachi band performs every Friday night. With a midnight closing time on weekends, the restaurant is a late-night favorite for college students and the nightclub set.
