Just a small space. Just a few small tables. No wait staff. But don’t underestimate it! By far, the best street tacos in town. And don’t get me started on the street corn, especially if you order it with brisket on top! Place your order...More

I’m not a drinker, so bars don’t appeal to me, but I had heard it was worth going for the tacos. For $11 I had three. Definitely money we’ll spend.

Stopped in on a whim on a Saturday night. This place was a party! Fun karaoke and atmosphere was a great party. We ordered some tacos to snack on and they were delicious and reasonably priced. One note - they are a cash only bar!...More

A great place to go in Madison for a Tuesday night out. listen to fantastic blues bands like Blythe Gamble and the Rollin Dice and have the best hand crafted tacos ever

The Ohio tavern has been around since the day of the speakeasy. This place has a pretty colorful history, as well as many of the patrons. Cheap beer, good conversation. A real piece of Madison history.
