Major Work on Chupacabra's Patio

Chupacabra (822 H Street) is upgrading their patio area. They recently installed a new cover, new tables, and a new railing. New lights & heaters are coming later this week. Look for new menu items to go with the revamped outdoor area. Thursday through Sunday 11am - 11pm.

I'd love if the new menu items included a few options that are bigger portions at lower prices! *Hint, hint, Chupacabra*

Patio looks great, but I also find Chupacabra overpriced compared to other taco options in the neighborhood.

Yeah, looks great but I agree I'd rather not spend $15 to fill up on tacos. Their pricing edges well into rip-off territory for me.

3$ for a single taco should be enough food for lunch, Taco Bar II for example. I can barely eat 2 of their tacos. At Chupa I need to eat at least 4 tacos.
Should really have $$$ on Yelp for +20$ dinners.

Go to El Churro in Columbia Heights. Better tacos, better prices.

I like the patio look. The food is great and the prices are decent for the DC area. No one around here has Tijuana priced tacos and I do not need Chipotle sized portions. Last week they had Ropa Vieja and tostadas on the special menu so I am guessing they were testing it out. They have a taco and beer deal so it would be nice if they made a larger deal such as a couple of tacos, chips, and a drink.

The food is delicious. Had the turkey and ropa vieja tacos last week. It is pretty expensive though.

The people complaining about the portion sizes remind me again of why Americans are so freaking fat.

As for the prices, I don't know what "other taco options in the neighborhood" people have in mind -- does Good Danny's sell tacos? Chinitos is great, but it also is not cheap. I can't remember Sol's pricing, but it's *not* great.

Tacorean in Union Market is comparatively cheap. Chinitos is also relatively cheap given what you get--you can get a burrito for under $10 that's the size of your head.

All city grants are public information and they did not receive one. It is a small business investing in the neighborhood.

Last time I was at Sol tacos were $2.50-3.00 each and every bit as good a Chupacabra.

I don't really like their tacos because the tortillas break in half immediately, but I had a bowl that was pretty good and didn't seem a rip off

they started to double wrap the corn tortillas which have helped. the menu they started yesterday has 2 tacos, chips and guac, and a drink (PBR, water or soda) deal on it for a good price. the taco prices were also reduced.

Don't want to pile on, as they are not bad, but I also find the portions too small. Three bites is what it took for each taco last time I was there. Not overweight, just a grown man...
