About Bent Taco:
Located on 48 Pine Street in Collingwood, Ontario, there is a nice Mexican place aptly named Bent Taco. As the name suggests, the main dish served here is the taco, with a variety of other Mexican cuisine staples, fun drinks, and exciting atmosphere.
There is enough parking near the place, so your vehicle will be safe while you enjoy a meal. The place has a TV but no Wi-Fi and takes reservations, which are good to have, especially if you want to enjoy dinner here. If not, you can order a takeaway meal, but they don’t do deliveries. The noise level is loud, as is suitable for a Mexican restaurant with a full bar. The venue is large enough to fit a big group of people, and is very welcoming to children, with a separate kid’s menu.
It serves lunch and dinner, and it works in double shifts, opening at noon to 3 PM and then from 5 PM to 9 PM on Wednesday through Sunday, with Fridays and Saturdays working up to 10 PM.

The Bent Taco is serving Mexican food to the Collingwood community since 2016. This restaurant located on the lower level or a house is decorated in a nice warm style with a lot of Mexican accents. The interior is mainly white, with a blue section on the walls and natural wood shelves and hardwood floors. There are plenty of small potted cacti on the shelves, along with knick-knacks that remind of Mexico, like tiny tequila souvenirs.
The tables are wooden, and the chairs are mismatched, wood and metal combo that go well with the unusual style of light fixtures. The patio is one of the best in Collingwood, with lights hanging from the trees in the yard casting a cosy glow.
The menu is purely Mexican, with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. There are separate lunch and dinner menus. The lunch menu has snacks and salads, fish, vegetarian, chicken, and Korean BBQ beef tacos, burritos with plenty of options and add-ons, and torta – a Mexican sandwich served with chips.
The dinner menu is the same, with additional options like nachos, grilled corn elote, tot supreme and others. The taco options are the good, Baja fish, chicken, Korean BBQ, beet, cauliflower, and blackened mahi-mahi taco, only prepared slightly differently from the lunch tacos. People can pick between two dinner burritos, burrito in a bowl, Cuban sandwich and truffle tots.
To accompany a meal, patrons can enjoy a cocktail from their ever-changing cocktail list or canned, bottled or beer on tap, some white and red wines, and a great selection of tequilas and mescals. This is a favourite place for many, especially during the summer, as people can enjoy cocktails with fresh ingredients and lovely food in a friendly atmosphere.
