The Grey Eagle Tavern and Music Hall is no stranger to hosting restaurants in the belly of its bar. It’s housed the ill-fated Yamamma’s Snaqueria (back in the day), the excellent Twin Cousin’s Kitchen (oh, how we miss your springtime crawdad boils) and Roots, which has recently closed its cafe (though it continues to do a brisk wholesale business, with hummus appearing in Ingles stores this year).
The latest in the line of inner-bar eateries is Taqueria con Cuida, specializing in (you guessed it) tacos. The menu is short and sweet — not to mention affordable. Tacos are $2 each and include fillings like pulled-pork carnitas, al pastor pork or seitan, borracho (drunk) chicken and a housemade vegan lentil chorizo. A simple burrito with meat, rice, beans and cheese is $5. And you can wash it all down with one of the Mexican sodas for just a buck. Oh, and with a $10 minimum order, con Cuida (meaning “with care”) will deliver their brand of fresh Mex to your doorstep.
