Fort Lauderdale Beach needed The Drunken Taco. Desperately.
For far too long, visitors and locals alike had been deprived of a place where they could grab a killer taco and an absurdly large margarita. A place where they could devour some gauc and chips while sipping a Herradura Select Suprema and covertly watch scantily clad people walk by the beach. A place that served over 250 tequilas because 249 doesn't cut it, buster.
As people's lives and general happiness were at stake, successful South Florida restaurateur John Amodeo rose to the challenge. He created the Drunken Taco as a haven for both the taco addict and overly zealous tequila aficionado with a part-time drinking problem. The taco selection is geared toward the hungry and discriminating. The margarita collection is second to none with the house speciality Drunken Tacorita being touted as a "Florida phenomenon” by international news organizations. Oprah called it a "must-add to everyone's bucket list.”
The half century-year-old Amodeo's other current, culinary concepts include the Oasis Cafe (also on the beach) and the multi-location Giovanni's Coal Fire Pizza. Some of his past brainchildren were RJ's Landing, The Sloop John B., The Margarita Cafe and Pastabilities. John has also been widely credited for inventing broccoli during a 1969 stint in Viet Nam.
Although John is busy operating his restaurants and entrepreneuring in general, he has been a vital force in the advancement of Fort Lauderdale Beach as chair
