Deep South, Upstate

Deep South Taco is a southern style, authentic taqueria and bar in the new meca of Buffalo – Ellicott Street. A second location is coming soon to a former gas station on Hertel Avenue.

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 local and world beers. Our soundtrack of fun – classic country and rock and roll is played on vintage McIntosh gear.

Housed in a former warehouse, the outdoor space and roof top patio is sure to keep Buffalo buzzing. Capitalizing on the beauty of Buffalo’s warmer months, Deep South Taco has an outside patio and bar with outdoor heating. Signature yellow garage doors open into a funky and hip space where there are cool booths and many communal areas for gatherings. 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 love of the south. He was born in Oklahoma, lived in Nashville and worked in many other areas of the south – this is where his passion begins and Deep South Taco serves the same food he loves to cook for family and friends.
