Cooper City has officially awarded its citizens with the opening of an authentic Mexican restaurant by the name of  TacoGüey. This restaurant is located along Stirling Road in the plaza across from CCHS, making it easily accessible to students. They were originally planning on opening soon after winter break concluded, but due to a power outage, they had to postpone their opening day.

Their doors have been open since January 11 for everyone who wants to have an enjoyable experience consuming fresh ingredients combined to create delicious Mexican dishes.

The menu at this establishment was nothing short of creative. They have a wide variety of mouth-watering options that each customer can choose to turn into two tacos, a burrito or a bowl, with a base of rice and beans. 

Some of these flavorful options include pulled BBQ pork tacos, shrimp tacos and lamb barbacoa tacos. They also have a few authentic Mexican dessert options for anyone with a sweet tooth. The delightful items include churros, Mexican candy and fruit with chili-lime. 

This delectable menu was created by Executive Chef Isaac Perlman since he takes pride in hand-crafting them with top-notch ingredients to please all the customers.

“Friendly” would be the perfect word to describe the service, with the staff giving customers a warm welcome and enthusiastic attitude to serve them and introduce them to the new eatery. 

Interestingly, a lot of the current staff consists of CCHS students. These students, along with the rest of the staff, seem to be very grateful to work there.

The atmosphere is overall cozy and warm, with the bright colors and message plastered on the wall that can be visible to everyone once they walk in. Unfortunately, the restaurant is petite for size and there’s not a lot of room for each individual to have much space while eating or ordering take-out.

On the other hand, it’s extremely satisfying to watch the chef prepare your order behind the glass. Customers will be able to see just how fresh their meal is as the chef cooks the protein and adds all the ingredients.

The decorations were both eye-catching and adorable to say the least. As customers walk down the hall filled with colorful tables and chairs, they will be able to view the collection of tiny plants along counters connected to the wall. They are mostly cactuses that range in size and rest in beautiful pots.

Furthermore, it’s easily accessible to all who would like to enter and the pricing is appropriate with all the satisfactory options.

TacoGüey is a lovely location for all who reside or visit Cooper City with their vibrant food, warm atmosphere and gorgeous decorations.
