The Hoppy Gnome menu will focus on fresh ingredients, striving to exceed the dining expectations of our guests. We feature a “scratch” kitchen which gives us a unique capability to cater to the many needs and desires of our guests. Tacos are our focus but we are much more, the taco is simply the delivery vehicle for the culinary creations wrapped inside. You’ll see everything from duck confit, to korean short rib, to a basic “taqueria” style taco. The menu will rotate two to four times a year, and in addition to tacos; appetizers, salads and tortas will round out the menu. Open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week.

    Good food. Good company. Great staff. The Philly steak taco was awesome. Barbacoa a close second. Wife had a sangria and we shred guacamole dip which was fresh. One of our go to places in Fort Wayne and it is also a great experience.

    Good place for a casual meal. The tacos are good size and there is a variety. Salads are also good. Vegetarians, pescitarins, and meat lovers should be able to find something to please. The house beer is okay but the guest taps are better. Also has cocktails and NA choices. Go for the food.

    Evan was a great server. Hope he has a great career as he had just started. Pork Belly, lamb stew and tacos were amazing. Sorry to say the sirloin steak was not to our Bakers Street expectations, but it is a taco bar. Truly appreciate the evident training done with the staff. Top notch!! The s’mores are a must!!

    This was my husband and I’s first time at the Hoppy Gnome. The food was amazing! We had fast service as well. My husband got a flight of beers and we loved every one of them, that is a first because he usually doesn’t like at least one on a flight. We will definitely be coming back.
