The Best Vegetarian Tacos Ever!

I haven't ever had a "favorite" taco before but can honestly say I've discovered not one but two vegetarian tacos that have me going ga-ga over how much I love them. Chacho's, a fun and hip taco bar located in downtown Campbell, CA has a "Vegetarian" as in all vegetables taco and a meatless "House" taco.
The house taco contains soy chorizo (I read online that Trader Joe's has an awesome soy chorizo if you want to make your own at home). Since it's on the regular menu and not tucked away off to the side in a vegetarian section I had to ask the obvious: "Soy, like... it's not meat?" The cashier laughed and said: "No, not meat." That's a photo of it above. I'd never had pork chorizo so I'm not sure if it tastes the same. What I can tell you is that it tastes good. Really good!

The vegetable vegetarian taco is also great. Filled with grilled onions, red and green bell peppers, carrot, fresh tomato and I'm not sure what else, they are tasty and I'd think pretty healthy.

If you're ever in or around downtown Campbell and want to check out a great vegetarian taco that doesn't look or taste like it's vegetarian, a quick stop at Chacho's for a "House" taco may be the perfect solution. They also have plenty of meat options and offer burritos, chimichangas, tacos, tortas, tostados, quesadillas, nachos, ceviche, soups (pozole, cocido, tortilla and albondigas), lots of house specials like enchiladas chile relleno, verde and colorado, flautos, tamales and even breakfast burritos with filling choices that include eggs (huevos), papas (potatoes), beans (frijoles), rice (arroz), cactus (nopales) and Spam (yes, spam).

They're located at 266 E. Campbell Ave. right next door to the Cardiff Lounge and across the street from Starbucks at Campbell Ave. and N. First St.

They have a small indoor dining area with high tables and bar stools and when the weather is good you can sit in the small outdoor patio dining area with standard height tables and chairs. It's casual, fun and delicious. I've stopped in for a quick taco on the run and they never give you that "Seriously, that's all you're going to order?" vibe. The service has been friendly and efficient each time I've been there whether I'm ordering a lot or a little.

  1. After you took me there I would have to agree with your review of CT's veggie tacos. It is also really nice to see them not take the backseat to the rest of the meat items on their menu. Love the long hours of this place as well.

  2. I've never gone late. We'll have to go some night after a networking event where we did more talking than eating :D
