Taco Bout It in Riverhead may be tricky to find (behind Haiku Sushi), but it is well worth the struggle. They’re dishing out traditional tacos served in house made tortillas and topped with chopped onion and cilantro. If you aren’t the traditional type, order them American style served with American cheese and shredded lettuce. Top them off with homemade hot sauce, offered in varying spiciness for all tolerance levels.
