What's the one sure way to know that 2022 will be better than 2021?
Better yet, the creative tacos at the new Dos Amigos Tacos restaurant in suburban Delray Beach.
The brainchild of culinary industry veterans Derek Mazer and Michael Jameson, who formerly worked at Lucille’s Bad to the Bone BBQ, this fast-casual restaurant has 18 varieties of handmade, foldable beauties that are set to make your mouth water and your taste buds bust out singing a mash up of "Let's Go Crazy" by Prince and "Don't Stop Me Now" by Queen.
