Welcome to tacoshop
tacoshop is a casual, modern taqueria that pays homage to all the latino flavors that Chef Lucas Manteca loves. We have mad respect for authentic Mexican food, but tacoshop is authentic only to how we love to eat: a modern and creative fusion of ingredients and flavors, so don't be surprised to see, for example, a poke bowl with a Mexican spin! We think you'll love it too.
Everything is scratch-made with fresh ingredients: from our made-daily tortillas to the house-made hot sauce. We like to think of tacoshop as slow food for fast people. Grab and go if you’re in a hurry, or better yet, hang a while and eat on the spot in our bright, happy space, filled with natural light and thriving plants. Afterall, tacos taste best fresh fresh fresh!
It’s a little taqueria, a lot snack bar, and it caters to all appetites—yes, vegetarians too. From our crowd-favorite street corn to your soon-to-be-fav yucca fries, this is food you'll want every day of the week, for lunch, for dinner, and all the cravings in between. See you soon, Cape May Court House!
tacoshop uses compostable serve-ware and paper bags, and is a proud sponsor of I Give A Tree, founded by tacoshop co-owner Deanna Ebner.
We also have drinks, desserts, and specials!
Our Mexican street food inspired small plates are great as apps. Order a bunch and make 'em your main event!
Vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian ... we have all your bases covered (except we can't make the burros gluten free).
When you're very hungry, go for our meals. These are extra satisfying mains will hit the spot!
Not just rice & beans! Every section of our menu has plant-based options, meaning almost half our menu!
