Obsessed with tacos? 

Taco Addicts, one of Cary’s newest Mexican eateries, will help you get your fix. Located in Crossroads Shopping Center in the former Ruby Tuesday spot, the full-service restaurant features more than a dozen tantalizing varieties of tacos.

Straightforward offerings like the traditional taco, a bean and cheese taco on a flour tortilla, and a fish taco with pico de gallo and chipotle salsa are all solid. But if you’re more adventurous, try the Vampiro, which comprises a handmade crispy corn tortilla filled with carne asada, cheese, queso fresco, cilantro and onions drizzled with a diablo sauce, or the Panzon with pork belly, vinegar-tinged onions, cilantro and guacamole salsa. 

Even breakfast tacos are accessible. A pair of tacos includes eggs, chorizo, potatoes and cheese served alongside rice and beans. 

Although the restaurant’s moniker might suggest otherwise, tacos are not the only cuisine available at this spacious, casual spot. 

Seafood lovers will find much to like about selections such as Mojarra (fried whole tilapia served with rice and guacamole salad) and Camarones el Cholo, a dish composed of shrimp wrapped in bacon topped with signature cheese dip. 

Choose from 15 various signature plates, the most impressive of which is the Molcajete, featuring a Mexican stone bowl loaded with steak, grilled chicken, chorizo, nopales (cactus leaves), onions, jalapenos, pico de gallo, queso fresco and spicy salsa. Consider the mulitas, which are sandwich-style tacos stuffed with your choice of meat, cilantro, onions, cheese and guacamole. 

Burritos, quesadillas and fajitas are all well represented. Order the hearty Burrito Mojado stuffed with carne asada, shrimp, grilled onions and French fries topped with cheese dip.   

Wash everything down with a Modelo or craft beer, a margarita or a mixed drink like la Catrina, fashioned with silver tequila, mango concentrate, grapefruit soda, Mexican spices and fresh lime juice.

If you have room left for dessert, go for the decadent tres leches cake or the sopapilla with ice cream. 

Taco Addicts is open daily for lunch and dinner. Online ordering is available for curbside pickup or delivery.
