Where Tacos Grow On Trees And Tequila Always Wins
July 22, 2019
North Beach Tortilla Co. Opens in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida
North Beach Tortilla Co. (NBTC), a taco and tequila bar that sits at the foot of the Clyde B. Wells (Highway 331) Bridge across from The Bay Restaurant in South Walton, Florida, is now open. Overlooking the Choctawhatchee Bay, the restaurant has a large covered deck for outdoor seating along with a wraparound bar featuring a selection of 100 tequilas, craft cocktails, and draft beer. The menu is a mix of Spanish, Southwestern, and Florida cuisine with a strong emphasis on fresh, made-from-scratch food using carefully sourced ingredients and authentic cooking methods. For Chef Jim Shirley, his staff, and their guests, it’s a hangout where “Tacos Grow On Trees and Tequila Always Wins.”
The structure was originally built from the pylons of an old drawbridge but has since been spruced up with some cool features including a glass wall that looks out to the white-sand beach and the bay. Sunsets here are not to be missed! Inside you’ll find art depicting a Taco Tree by renowned local artist, Andy Saczynski. The exterior has been painted a beautiful, crisp white paint. The building itself has for many years been a welcoming landmark for everyone coming and going to South Walton.
North Beach Tortilla Co. is open daily from 4:00–10:00 PM. Join them for happy hour from 4:00–6:00 PM daily and enjoy $5 Corralejo silver tequila, $6 house wine by the glass, and $7 North Beach Margaritas. Wait—there’s more! Enjoy Dos Equis drafts for $3 all day, every day, and $4 Sunset Shooters from 6:00–8:00 PM daily.
