Our concept is to take simple Taqueria food to a new level. We buy the best ingredients, make everything from scratch, and combine it with a full bar.

We also keep our standards high and our prices low. By serving natural and organic foods whenever possible we ensure that all of our food not only tastes better but that it is also a healthy choice. We purchase food based on taste, the effect on environment, and the quality of life for the animals that help feed us.

Pecado Bueno is a place where young families can bring their kids and feel right at home – even alongside young single people! Our atmosphere is more “Rock and Roll” than Mexican. We serve a great margarita at a great price ($3 all day, every day!) and let the whole city know about it. Who said good food and drinks had to be expensive?

And our name? Pecado Bueno translates roughly to “sin well” and we believe if you are going to sin, then you better do it right! Can food be worth the wrath of God? We believe if you are going to eat and drink (gluttony is a sin, right??), then do it well – eat a delicious, local plate of enchiladas and quaff the best quality margarita you can find!
