Rock Au Taco
The 28 seat boulevard patio at the Early Bird Diner and Rock Au Taco is open for the season. Gregg and Justin Wolfe opened “Rock Au Taco” next door to the Early Bird Diner, downtown London’s red-hot, retro diner last year. (The diner’s popularity inspired a great segment from “You Gotta Eat Here!” from the Food Network.) The small takeout taco bar at Rock Au Taco with limited seats, also serves the Early Bird patrons if they want anything from the taco list.
Trying to give London something it didn't already have, the Wolfe brother’s brought authentic southern Mexican street food to downtown London, with their food truck style tacos: cheap, quick and tasty. Rock Au Taco features signature tacos with fillings such as beef cheek and beef tongue, pork belly, fish, potato and re-fried bean. They’re topped with freshly made salsas, pickled onions and other garnishes. There is also a proper whisky/tequila and cocktail list, ice-cold cervezas, and the Mexican beer/cocktail hybrid michelada. The michelada, one of the most popular drinks in Mexico, is a beer-based cocktail made with lime, hot sauce, Worcestershire, and often tomato (or Clamato) juice, all served over ice in a glass with a salted rim.
This is classic gourmet grub to go and a great take on Latin-American inspired street food.
