It's a perfect spot for lunch in Port Moody. Love it! The food I ordered, unfortunately was too spicy as I didn't ask in advance. But delicious anyway :)

I regularly eat at Taps and Tacos and enjoy the food and service. Sadly, my last experience as a guest at Taps and Tacos was very disappointing. I took my father there for his birthday; the server brought him a different burrito than he has ordered for himself, we had to get cutlery and the hot sauces from a nearby table as no server was coming to greet us. For this same reason, we had to ask a different server to grab payment ( the machine and the bill), who didn't bring us either. We then asked a different server who brought the bill but not the machine. Finally, we had both and could pay.... but our server didn't do payment at our table herself.

I don't understand how such a small restaurant can be so understaffed or simply neglectful.

One nice thing was that server who wasn't quite yet "on the floor" got up from the bar top from which she was sitting at to greet and seat us- because she notices how long it was taking.
Still nice of her.

The food is great, happy hour is nice, and there are different specials on different days. Cool take on Mexican food that is very modern.

the food was good. the staff was well equipped with sanitizer bottles ( which may not seem like a big deal to some but im a cook so it was pretty cool ). the tacos were pretty good, they could invest in better tortillas, or start making them in house to improve the quality there. I mean... they are called taps and tacos so. thats just me being nit picky i had an awesome evening and the food and beverages only enhanced it so. will definitely try to return some time soon!!!

First time at the restaurant and found it was very hot inside, especially sitting upstairs. One of my party asked if there was a fan they could use, but unfortunately there wasn't. After awhile, they did turn the a/c on, but given the fact that it was one of the days when the temperature outside was over 30 C, you'd think they would already have it on.
On the plus side, the food was really good. We started with the Queso Fundido - loved it! Wished it was a larger portion though - decent size for 2 people. The chips used were so good.
All four of us had the Southside Chicken Burrito and loved it. Very tasty and quite filling.
My friend and her mom also ordered chips and the 3 salsas, and the guacamole was awesome! That was the only one I tried and would definitely order it again.
I will definitely go back, but probably on a day when it's not hot.

Great little cocktail list. Tried the Jalepeno margarita - it was ok. Better to order a regular one half sweet and throw in some jalepeno slices. Tacos were great, especially for a taco Tuesday. Service was meh - customer service training is needed.

I visited Taps & Tacos twice this month (for the first time!) and both times were equally wonderful! The ambiance is fun and summery and the food is delicious! I love the chip & dip trio as well as the Korean BBQ taco. Will be coming back for sure and can't wait to try more things!

My hubby and I came in for lunch for his birthday. He’d been wanting to check it out. The service was great, but the food was very mediocre. We make better tacos at home. The flavours in the beef taco didn’t quite mesh together and the quesadilla was just ok. Would come back for some salsa and chips with beer but not for food.

No complaints other than I wish they had patios!!

I love their jerkfruit taco!! And I'm a meat eater. It literally has the texture of pulled pork or chicken. If someone gave me it and didn't tell me what it was I would have no idea its a fruit and not meat.

We were very excited to try this restaurant because of its location and all of the positive reviews. Unfortunately, I have to say everything was just 'okay.' We all tried several tacos and each liked only one of the 4-5 we tried. Cocktails were okay and service was okay. We will go back and give it another try but nothing really impressed us.

The food was good however 3 of the tacos tasted very similar the Asda, carne, and the Mediterranean one. However the Korean BBQ was to die for! Also it’d be cool if you could substitute proteins into each taco. IE the jackfruit taco with a meat protein or vice versa :) also the server was great especially for her first day! Well done, Megan/Meaghan?
