WELCOME TO THE MULE.
We’re not your traditional Mexican place. We just happen to think that tacos are a dish best served fun, with a side of liquor. Welcome to The Mule, where tacos, tequila and bourbon come to party.
Located in one of Hamilton’s most beautiful spaces, we think we’ll be your new favourite lunch spot, your regular late-night haunt and your go-to destination for a good drink. Our bartenders have crafted a bourbon- and tequila-focused cocktail menu that will surprise and fascinate, and we also have a variety of beers on tap.
And don’t forget the food. From baja wings to beef-tongue tacos, chef Matthew Kershaw’s menu offers an approachable and fresh twist on your favourite flavours from way down south. Our tacos range from classic Mexican to weird-and-wild-you’ve-gotta-try-this. All of our food is 100% gluten-free and we offer a variety of fare that is sure to delight your vegetarian and vegan side.
It’s time to kick back, relax, grab a drink and eat s

    The wings are very small, some too small to be served, they are extremely salty aswell. The tacos were good as far as the flavor goes, the cost is too much for such a tiny taco it's not filling at all. Unfortunately the amount of money we spent to feel somewhat full isn't worth it. Would go back for a drink and Vibe but not with a family and not if im hungry. It's more of an expensive APP place. Music was too loud. The server was great :)

    The tacos were pretty standard and good size. It was not too big, not too small. My favorite was the shrimp tacos. But it depends on the person. I would recommend going here. The waiters and hostess were welcoming and friendly. The art and aesthetic of the place was cool, indie, and bright.

    I went here with my husband, and it was amazing. It was his first time and he enjoyed the quality of the food, service and drinks were very well done. Creative and very good presentation. Calamari was so good, we had it twice. Tacos were unbelievable. Definitely coming back.

    Great spot. Don’t ask patrons to leave while they are still finishing their drinks and would have ordered another round. Have some class and let people enjoy their night out.

    Great service - owned a hiccup with ordering and was very complimentary. Food was great! Definitely a LOUD place... hard to hear conversation at the table. Lovely decor. Didn't love being told that table was needed for another reservation at 6:30 (reso was at 4:45) before I even took my coat off. Slightly more welcoming message would of been preferred. Server was so supportive of modifications for spice etc.

    The food and service was awesome - it all came from the kitchen quickly and being able to order one taco at a time allowed us to try a variety of them on the menu. The spicy margarita is to die for! The volume was a little much at first but as we were seated and settled into our meal we didn't even notice the background conversations.

    The best taco spot in the GTA. Traditional Mexican creatively fused and reinvented, with handcrafted cocktails and rotating draft to perfectly compliment your meal. Vegetarian friendly as well. 10/10
