OAK LAWN -- Hot, meaty, smoldering, tasty. Hey, we're talking about tacos people! Le Taco Cantina in Oak Lawn, to be exact. From the seating to the décor to, of course, the food, everything is meant to be aesthetically pleasing.

Which is just the thing owner Dylan Elchami thought the Metroplex needed.

"Tacos are all over Dallas, probably a million taco shops. They all do the same thing: shredded brisket, cheese, onion done," Elchami said. "So, we decided, let's take a taco and have fun with it."

And you're not only getting fun, you're getting fusion. Think of it as fine dining mixed with tradition, in a shell. From the Moo-Shu duck confit to the smoked brisket, to the salmon teriyaki.

They even do their own taco take of the Oscar steak. You heard right, a steak taco topped with lump crab, asparagus, even black truffle.

Chew on This, Le Taco is the only spot in Dallas serving a Nutella taco with fried plantain topped with whipped cream.

Que rico!

Now, if that doesn't tickle you taste buds, maybe their Happy Hour will. Margarita anyone?

You can say Le Taco is love at first bite, a sensory seduction that lives up to its slogan.

"That came from, actually when we first opened it wasn't a slogan," Elchami said. "Then someone came in and was like, 'this is like a sexy place to eat tacos.' And we're like, we love that."

Fusion tacos, drink specials, and Nutella? Sounds pretty damn sexy to me!
