Mexican / Southwestern
Welcome to Taco Gato, part of the FNF Restaurant Group. Our food and drinks are fun, exciting, surprising, and fresh. This is not your average taco joint. We took inspiration from 30° north latitude across the globe, focusing on North America. We have created an elevated, rustic menu that we often describe as Tex-Mex meets Southern with an Asian flare. The ambiance embodies southern decor that, in our opinion, most resembles a new take on an old saloon meets a high-end agave bar to create a warm and inviting space.
Come in with an open mind, belly, and heart and we will do our best to fill them all.
Cheers to Cedar Rapids!

    Service was excellent. Food was hit and miss but that is a function of trying hard. The menu is eclectic. Come a few times and find what you like. We enjoyed the atmosphere, drinks, service and most of the food.

    Our first time at Taco Gato will not be our last. The restaurant is unique because of its decor and delicious menu! From the beef taco bento box, to the Almost Shrimp and Grits, as well as the special Hot Ham & cheese (pimento cheese!), our party of three enjoyed every bite! Our cocktails were great, too. Plus, we had a wonderful server! Don’t hesitate-go to Taco Gato!!

    Taco Gato and their staff did not disappoint for our New Year’s dinner out! The food was delicious and the wine pairing that we added on to the experience was thoughtfully chosen and went well with all of the courses. The staff was friendly and attentive from the moment we walked in the door until we left. This is definitely one of our favorite places to dine and we could not recommend it more!
