A Family Owned Restaurant

That’s Dedicated To Locals.

Taco Daddy Cantina founder and chef, Neel, along with chef Damian started Taco Daddy to bring something authentic and fun to our original location in Downtown Frederick. Together with the great management help of Andrew and Lauren, we have built a friends and family restaurant catering to all age groups. At Taco Daddy Cantina, we keep in mind that nothing beats a fresh home-made meal. Aside from our great food, we offer the best Margaritas in town along with a huge selection of tequilas. Our Mexican ambiance makes us special and colorful, while adding to your dining experience. We invite you to come join us and have great time. Come join us at our Frederick or Gaithersburg location, and be on the lookout for more Taco Daddy locations in near future. Gracias, hasta pronto!
