La Patrona Taqueria in Virginia Beach

La Patrona Taqueria Virginia Beach

If you drive by fast, it looks like the sign says Tequileria. Closer inspection reveals Taqueria, and La Patrona is all about tacos (featuring handmade tortillas) and other street food including gorditas, sopes, huaraches and elote in a former Captain D’s converted into a spiffy bar and grill that could double as a shrine to Frida Kahlo.

Micheladas at La Patrona Taqueria

Portraits of the artist adorn the walls and the color scheme channels her Blue House in Mexico City. And while La Patrona Taqueria gladly serves tequila (heck, its name sounds like a big brand), it prides itself on myriad Micheladas (beer meets Bloody Mary).

1153 Lynnhaven Pkwy., Virginia Beach. 757-301-4527.
