The Ultimate in Fresh, Flavor and Fun
Story by ML Ball
At Tito Santana Taqueria on Main Street in Beacon, nothing is done halfway—not even close.
Here, it’s dialed up to the max, from the trippy wall murals with flaming skulls, skeleton mariachi band and wacked-out flowers (by local artists Rick Price and Joe Pimentel) to the taste bud–thrilling Mexican dishes. Firing on all burners, if you will, this is one tasty place.
Owner and chef Kamel Jamal honed his craft on a crazy road trip along the coastline of California, states the website, learning “the good, the bad and the ugly of the taco world of California.” He then took everything he loves to eat, brought it to Beacon and put it on Tito Santana’s menu. (Tito Santana, by the way, is a Mexican-American Hall of Fame WWF professional wrestler—real name: Merced Solis—who recently visited the restaurant bearing his name.)
