Mondo Taco is a tiny, order-at-the-counter spot near the promenade, so don’t come here looking for a scene. Instead, come for the less authentic but creative taco fillings like Thai chicken, hot dog, or coconut shrimp. A lot of them are pretty good - we like the Southern Decadence, which is a forced-fun way of saying fried chicken tacos.
