Get Your Local Spice On

Updated: Mar 2

Find the Bistros, Bars, and Taco Trucks Serving Up El Yucateco Near You!

Ever been out to dinner at a favorite spot, but found yourself missing that extra kick of spice from your hot sauce collection back home? For some, the hot sauce holster is required for a meal out, but for those without a pocket bottle, El Yucateco still has you covered.

Bars and restaurants across the US feature El Yucateco sauces on their menus, in their cocktails, and on their tables. They bring the spice, so you don’t have to!

We have started a list, checked it twice… wait, wrong list. THIS list is full of awesome flavor. We have pulled together a quick peek around the country at different amazing restaurants that all use El Yucateco in various different ways, and every one is currently open for pick up or delivery.

It is not news to anyone that we all want and need to support our favorite restaurants right now, so this list is going to serve all kinds of purposes:

1. Help us help our restaurant partners all around the country by telling us what YOUR favorite bar or restaurant is that uses our products. Then we can add them to this list and give them a shout out!

2. Everyone around the country gets to have a killer list of super cool restaurants to refer to once we all start traveling and visiting each other again. How cool is that?!

3. Even in these times of delivery and take-out, you can get your flavor fix while supporting the folks down the street. Your community and your taste buds will thank you.

MexA Steak Tacos

Four baskets of different varieties of soft tacos, featuring eggs, steak, spinach and more, from MexA Steak Tacos in Lousiville, KY.

In Monterrey, MexA's founder grew up with tacos made with steak (carne asada). After traveling throughout Mexico, she saw that steak tacos were being prepared in different ways in every city and region and liked them all. Each locale and each taco had a unique twist, different ingredients, and various types of tortillas. It was fascinating how one protein could offer so much variety and excitement, due to the combination of ingredients, flavors, textures, colors, and sizes of each steak taco. When she came to Louisville in 2008, she started having friends over for regular taco nights. Every time featured different steak tacos that shared a unique experience from Mexico. This evolved into MexA. They offer a unique and simple experience, the very best steak tacos, and showcase flavors from around Mexico.
