This place is well worth a visit. The staff is friendly and the menu is great with a nice variety of taco fillings. The wait staff is attentive and our food was served quickly. I would definitely recommend this place.

I like this particular Bartaco on Farmington Ave. It's clean, right on the main busy street and close to some many other shops that you get to after a very nice meal.
