Deep South, Upstate

Deep South Taco is a southern style, authentic taqueria and bar with three locations in Buffalo: Ellicott Street (downtown), Hertel Avenue (North Buffalo) and Transit Road (Lancaster).

Chef Richard Hamilton’s menu, inspired by authentic Mexican food he cooked as a “breather” to his fine dining life, is complemented by an extensive house-selected single barrel bourbon program, exceptional tequilas and our very own LuchaBrew, an amber lager crafted by Deep South Taco and 42 North Brewing Company. Our soundtrack of fun – classic country and rock and roll is played on vintage Macintosh gear.

Capitalizing on the beauty of Buffalo’s warmer months, Deep South Taco has an outside patio and bar. Signature yellow garage doors open into a funky and hip space where there are cool booths and communal areas. At our downtown Buffalo location, stairs lead to the third floor where our rooftop cabanas offer a completely different experience with city views.

The name Deep South Taco is a nod to Richard’s heritage and his love of the south. He was born in Oklahoma, lived in Nashville and worked in many other areas of the south, where his passion for the very best food began. Deep South Taco serves the same food he loves to cook for family and friends.
