Just in time for Cinco de Mayo, Food Network Magazine’s May issue (below right) features a story entitled “50 States of Tacos” and Agave Grill in Hartford, which describes itself as a Modern Mexican Grill and Tequila Bar, is prominently featured for tacos that are praised for tasting like authentic Mexican street food.

Here's what the magazine has to say:

Spicy BBQ Pork Taco Agave Grill, Hartford

You can order these blue corn tortillas with all sorts of fillings, but barbecue pork is the most loved.

Fans say the tacos are as close to Mexican street food as you can find in Connecticut.
