BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — A New Orleans-founded restaurant offering fresh tacos and happy hour margaritas officially opened its first Baton Rouge location in December.

Barracuda Taco Stand and Margarita Garden is on the corner of Government Street and St. Rose Avenue in Mid City and offers menu items such as carne asada, crispy fish tacos and salsa.

“We’re overwhelmed by the warm welcome that we’ve received so far and the community’s response to our made from scratch, fresh made tacos and margs,” said owner Brett Jones. “Our team has been working really hard to make sure that our guests have an awesome experience when they visit us at Barracuda.”

There will be a Deluxe Nacho Happy Hour which allows guests to only order the nacho special during lunch and dinner happy hour from 3-6 p.m., according to the restaurant. Other happy hour specials include 3 for $5 crunchy tacos, $6 classic margaritas and $3 beers.

A spokesperson for Barracuda Taco Stand said the Baton Rouge location’s hours are currently 4-9 p.m. Hours will be expanded in the new year.
