I begin each summer excited with the simplicity it will bring – a busy school year has come to an end, there is no bus to catch. We will sleep in, read daily, and catch fireflies. And while my intentions are there, admittedly they are a bit naïve. The reality of summer is that our days are packed with camps, playdates, afternoons at the pool, and trips to see the grandparents.
I’m not complaining – all of these things are more fun than parent/teacher conferences and checking over daily homework, but they keep us busy! Normal adult responsibilities, like prepping dinner at reasonable times, in summer tend to go by the wayside. And although our daily activities aren’t simple, our family has found ways to keep summer dinners simple. You will find us on our porch at night either eating an easy grilled dinner or takeout from one of our favorite restaurants (no dirty dishes to clean for the win!).
bartaco Makes It Simple
We have always loved bartaco! There are multiple locations in the Atlanta area and we’ve even found ourselves eating at the Asheville, NC location on vacation. In our house, tacos aren’t restricted to just Tuesdays and bartaco makes some of the best.
In our search for simple summer dinners, we were thrilled to try out bartaco’s to-go meals. The process is as simple as 1-2-3…and dishes are done!
Order online or via the bartaco app
The app is easy to navigate, includes photos of each meal so you know exactly what you are ordering, and sends you notifications when your food is ready!
Pick up your food at the to-go window inside the restaurant
Try to make it home before officially digging in…or not…no judgment here
Surprise your family with a delicious meal “out” in the comfort of your own home
With all of the time you saved by not cooking dinner and cleaning afterward, I highly recommend actually catching fireflies or maybe enforcing a little summer reading on the porch as a family!
bartaco Makes It Special
bartaco doesn’t only make to-go meals simple, they also make them special and here’s why:
- My kids loved having their meal packaged in a cute (and functional!) bartaco lunch box. The lunchbox was filled with their favorites – a taco, a cheese quesadilla, and chips + kid’s guacamole. After finishing their meal, they customized their lunchbox with stickers that were included.
- My husband loved finding a treat I had ordered for the two of us – bartaco cocktails. We ordered “the reviver for two” which was a combination of gin, cucumber, mint, mango nectar, and lime juice. It was a perfect summer porch cocktail to enjoy at the end of the day!
- I loved the menu of food options. Being newly gluten and dairy free is hard when you also like to eat out! bartaco’s menu made it SO easy though – there were many options to choose from, even considering my dietary restrictions.
Keep your summer nights simple and special by treating your family to bartaco – the perfect meal to enjoy porch or poolside!
