Django Western Taco Tuesday.

This evening we stopped to celebrate Genifer’s new position in GCB’s HR department with a bite to eat at Django Western Taco

Usually, we go with the old stand-bys. Genifer gets salsa, maybe some of their Django-style guacamole and a taco. I always go for the incredible chicken biscuit. But tonight Django threw us a curve ball by adding some new dishes. Like Totachos…

Tots topped with barbacoa pulled pork, queso, barbeque sauce and crema. Awe. Some. And the Chorizo Melt with chorizo, avocado and fried egg on Texas Toast…

Genifer also ordered another of our old favorites, the Jerk Chicken Quesadilla…

Outstanding stuff. Now whenever we go to Django, we’re going to be faced with some really tough decisions. And I’m good with that. 😀🌮❤️

Northside Saturday.

We headed out this afternoon in Northside. We stopped to gawk at the giant maneki-neko lucky cat in the window of Chicken Lays An Egg

And then we continued on to Django Western Taco for lunch…

Genifer ordered a big bowl of chicken tortilla soup with one of Django’s biscuits…

And speaking of biscuits…

THE CHICKEN BISCUIT IS BACK AT DJANGO!!!

And all is right in the world once again. I missed it so much. It’s so tasty. Chef Josh also let us try a taste of another soup he’s working on, a chipotle ham and veggie soup…

From there, we walked down to Second Place

For a nice bourbon slush and some popcorn…

Whoever does the Second Place calendar posters obviously has some fun with them…

And on the way home, we stopped at Higher Gravity for a beer. We walked into a benefit for The Good Boy Foundation that was just winding down with a whole bunch of dog’s in Halloween costumes…

We saw on Higher Gravity’s Untappd menu that they had just tapped a Robe Red Velvet Stout from Streetside Brewery and Holtman’s Donuts and also just tapped a Holtman’s Apple Fritter Cider from March First Brewing

YUM! It was just another fun Saturday afternoon in Northside. 😀⬆️❤️

Northside Wednesday.

After work this evening, we walked through the Northside Farmer’s Market

We stopped at Urban Artifact to try their latest creation called Love Letter Peach Midwest Tart, have another taste of their Anaglyph Banana Midwest Fruit Tart and try their new Spicy Chariot Tart Cherry Gose

Then we stopped a taco at Django Western Taco because it was National Taco Day

And then we headed home…

It was a pretty good Wednesday in Northside! 😀👨‍🌾🍺🌮❤️

#GCRWeek17: Django Western Taco.

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN! IT’S GREATER CINCINNATI RESTAURANT WEEK!
Our first meal of restaurant week was at the only restaurant participating in Northside, the newly reopened Django Western Taco...

We got to try both of the appetizers…

Ensalada Fresca…

And Grilled Bread…

For the main course, we shared the Blended Steak Burger…

And Charred Eggplant Mushroom Enchiladas…

And we got to try both desserts…

The Chili Chocolate Mousse…

And the Warm Doughnuts…

Everything we had was absolutely delicious! But the salad, burger and mousse were the clear winners for us round by round…

What a wonderful way to start our Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week! 😀🌮❤️

Django Western Taco.

After a three-month hiatus, Django Western Taco has reopened in their new location just up Hamilton Avenue a couple doors down from Tickle Pickle. They’re so close to us now. We’ve been anxiously waiting for their return, and tonight we were finally rewarded for our patience…

We started with some chips & salsa…

And added some Django-style guacamole…

I ordered a fried chicken taco and Genifer ordered a carne asda taco…

And I had to get a jerk chicken quesadilla…

Such delicious, delicious flavors. Everything was just the way we remember it, if not even better! So good! Speaking of so good, check out Django Western Taco’s menu for the upcoming Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week…

I know where our first stop is going to be during restaurant week. It sounds delicious.

It’s so good to have Django Western Taco back in the neighborhood and just a hop, skip and a jump from our house. 😀🌮❤️

It’s a sign.

Django Western Taco has a sign up in the window of their new location…

We can’t wait until they’re back up and running! Taken with Instagram. 😀🌮❤️

Sunday Funday.

We watched the Mexico versus Portugal Confederations Cup match this morning. And then we headed down to Second Place to watch Chile take on Cameron. On our way to Second Place, we noticed a sign on the door of our beloved Django Western Taco

Django is moving in next to Tickle Pickle on Hamilton Avenue, and that’s just a hop, skip and a jump from us. Chef Josh broke the news to us a few weeks ago when we were in for Sunday Brunch that they were moving up Hamilton. It’s so cool to have one of our most favorite restaurants move even closer to our house…

Now if we could just get Second Place to move closer as well. Their featured slush today was a cayenne pina colada, which mixed surprisingly well with the bourbon slush…

It tasted like being on vacation. And made for a pretty fun Sunday. 😀🏖️🌮

UPDATE: Django’s old space at the corner of Hamilton and Ble Rock is now empty…

Summer Hours: Django Western Taco.

Deskey lets us work just a half-day every other Friday throughout the summer. They
call them Summer Hours. And they’re pretty flippin’ awesome. Today was my first Summer Hours Friday. We didn’t plan ahead very well, and couldn’t come up with anything fun to do. So when I got home, I worked on organizing the office for a bit while I watched the France versus Sweden World Cup qualifier. Olivier Giroud had an amazing goal for France. As for the office, it still has quite a ways to go but at least I know where more stuff is now. I’ll keep plugging away at working on it…

While I was organizing, I found two $25 gift cards that I apparently misplaced. I also found a gift certificate that still had a balance to Django Western Taco. And there’s no better time than the present to redeem that gift certificate for some delicious Django Western Taco goodness

Genifer ordered a carne asada taco and she loves Django’s salsa…

Django’s special today was corn on the cob with chipotle aioli and shredded cheese…

And of course, I ordered their amazing chicken biscuit…

It’s one of my favorite dishes around. Just look at that delicious mess…

Django also had a watermelon beer from Lost Coast on tap that was out of this world! I’m really happy we couldn’t come up with something to do earlier. Next Summer Hours, I think we’re going to go check out Island Frydays in Corryville. 🙂

Northside Sunday.

We went to Django Western Taco for a late brunch today. We shared the buttermilk biscuit with redeye chorizo gravy and fried eye, Chef Josh’s famous tater tot casserole and a side of bacon topped with ancho chile honey…

And it was delicious. As always. Also, Chef Josh said that Django Western Taco has some really big news coming very soon so we can’t wait for his big announcement!  After we stuffed our faces at Django, we walked over to Urban Artifact for a beer or two…

We had the very last pint of the Palmistry and a couple of Finn’s…

We love Northside so much. 😀 ❤️

Northside Sunday.

We were walking down Hamilton Avenue to brunch and saw the Dogfish Head x Crosley Cruiser Tour parked out in front of Shake It Records

We went to Django Western Taco for brunch…

We shared a breakfast burrito and tater tot casserole…

Afterwards, we went to Second Place to watch Michigan’s second round basketball game against Louisville. It also turns out the Liverpool versus Manchester City match was on…

Second Place put out quite the spread for the match…

It was a pretty amazing atmosphere for both of the games. And… it was super exciting to watch Michigan advance to the Sweet Sixteen. Also, next Saturday the second season of FC Cincinnati USL soccer kicks off in Charleston, South Carolina. And Second Place is having a watch party…

It was another really fun Sunday in Northside. 🙂
