Best Expansion For Late-Night Taco Lovers: Gomez Salsa Cantina

Best Expansion For Late-Night Taco Lovers

If you’ve ever had more than a few drinks in Over-the-Rhine, you’ve probably eaten at Gomez Salsa’s walk-up window. Serving homemade tacos, salsa and their infamous Turtles (a burrito stuffed with everything you could ever want, including a tostada for crunch), the window is open until 2:30 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Their new Walnut Hills location Gomez Salsa Cantina also pulls late-ish hours, offering addictive modern Tex-Mex food until 10 p.m. The new location also features a few things the original Gomez doesn’t, such as indoor seating, a liquor license for housemade margaritas and a streamlined menu with four distinct flavor combos. It’s exciting news for owner Andrew Gomez, who began the business as a way to sell authentic food inspired by his grandmother’s cooking.
