Fire It Up is the brick and mortar location of what was once a food truck, which is clear from the simple straightforward menu. Being new to the area, we were not aware of the food truck but did come across this location when looking for a fun lunch when out running errands. The space is small with maybe 10 tables but the food comes out quickly. The restaurant focuses on using grass-fed meats and local and organic produce and all the sauces are homemade. The menu is primarily tacos and an order includes two of each but they can also be ordered individually. In our two visits, we have managed to try most of them. Mind you, these are not traditional tacos but rather fun, unique flavors and combinations. The steak taco has nicely seasoned steak with a delicious green chili. The shrimp taco has perfectly cooked shrimp with cabbage and a lemon aioli; it is wonderful! The chicken taco was the least interesting of those we tried but still good with a grilled chicken, onion, mixed greens and tomato salsa. Our favorite is the gringo taco which is fried and filled with a ground beef, bean, and cheese filling. It is really a fun, delicious taco! The chimichurri rice and beans are a delicious side dish which takes this simple dish up a notch with the spice of the chimichurri. We have also tried the mini-brownie chimichangas which are the only dessert option. The small brownie bites are battered and deep fried and served with a chocolate sauce. They are a wonderful way to end the meal.
Overall, we really enjoyed the flavors and delicious food at Fire It Up. We will certainly visit again.
