Cinco De Mayo and Taco Tuesday are on the same day, which means there’s plenty of reason to celebrate in St. Petersburg. We may have to Cinco at Home, but that doesn’t mean we have to do without the best taco spots in the Sunshine City. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite St. Pete spots still open for curbside pickup, and delivery.

Taquitos Mexican wanted to bring the flavors of Cadereyta de Montes, the owner’s birthplace, to the states. Because they are more of a traditional Taco house, Taquitos Mexican specializes in Mexican street food, but also try to combine traditional flavors with more modern takes of Mexican food in the States. We recommend the fish tacos. You can get beer-battered or blackened fish on handmade corn tortillas with traditional diced onion and cilantro on top, or you can add lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and crema.
Taquitos is offering new take-home taco kits to further amplify your Taco Tuesday festivities.

Casita’s iconic beer and tacos insignia painted above the front entrance has long served as a beacon of bold flavor for residents.

The restaurant is open for takeout. Visit Casita’s website for a look at the incredible menu.
Señor Taco delivers a flawless haymaker to our taste buds each and every time we visit. The arroz imperial (Mexican stuffed rice), fried ice cream and handmade tamales are glorious. Their tacos are equally remarkable.
We recommend you order the Machete tacos — fried pork mushrooms and onions smothered with melted cheese and served on a flour tortilla topped with salsa verde. If you have room, treat yourself to the el trí — smoked ham, chorizo, bacon, onions, and poblano peppers, all grilled together and topped with melted cheese, cilantro, guac and sour cream on a flour tortilla.
Visit the restaurant’s website for a full menu. The restaurant also delivers through UberEats.
