Off the Beaten Plate: Walking Tacos at Henry T's

Walking Tacos at Henry T's Bar & Grill, 3520 W. Sixth St.

The “Walking Taco” is all about convenience. Order up a plate of these babies at Henry T’s and forget about the to-go box.

This treat (which also goes by monikers like “Frito boat” and “taco-in-a-bag”) is popular at sports venues, fundraisers and the like for its portability.

Seasoned ground beef (or black beans), queso fresco, and pico de gallo are stuffed inside a snack-sized bag of Fritos, garnished with a bed of shredded lettuce and a few lime wedges.

It’s a bit of a surprise to see a trio of food-filled Frito bags tastefully arranged at a sit-down restaurant, but the dish still delivers taco flavor in a pinch.

Where to get it: Henry T’s Bar & Grill, 3520 W. Sixth St.
