Photos of Dirty Taco’s new location at Manhasset Bay Marina in Port Washington


Dirty Taco & Tequila — the fast-growing, family-owned restaurant chain — has just opened its latest location on Long Island, and this time, it comes with a beautiful waterview in Port Washington.

Situated at the old La Motta’s Dockside location at Manhasset Bay Marina, Dirty Port offers a unique dining experience against the backdrop of the water.

This new opening marks the sixth addition to the Dirty Taco chain, which has been in rapid expansion mode this summer. Alongside the Port Washington location, another spot has opened in Smithtown at the former Green Turtle on 716 Smithtown Bypass.

For those visiting Dirty Port, it appears the restaurant will operate seasonally, running from April to November, as reported by Newsday. However, during the offseason, the space won’t go to waste; the owners plan to utilize it for catering events such as weddings and other special ceremonies.

Dirty Taco is renowned for its vibrant and lively atmosphere, offering an array of mouthwatering street taco options. From the traditional Birria and Jamaican Jerk to the exotic Vietnamese Shrimp, guests can embark on a tantalizing taco adventure.

Then there’s the creative cocktails, such as the Sangarita (a margarita with red or white sangria), Watermelon Basil margarita, plus a wide selection of tequilas.

Owner Tom Cataldo Jr., the mastermind behind Dirty Taco’s success, fell in love with tacos during his college days in Arizona, especially after spending many nights in Los Angeles.

Now, he and his family manage and operate all Dirty Taco locations, which include Wantagh, Rockville Centre, Woodbury, Patchogue, Smithtown, and the newly opened Port Washington spot.
