Poppo’s Taqueria

A trip to Anna Maria Island is a full sensory experience: listen to the waves crashing, smell the salty ocean air, feel the sand beneath your feet, watch the sun sink below the waves and taste some delicious gourmet local Mexican cuisine at Poppo’s Taqueria.

Mexican inspired, San Francisco styled and locally sourced, Poppo’s Taqueria offers a twist on traditional cuisine that you can’t get anywhere else. A family-owned establishment, you can’t help but feel like you’re eating a home cooked meal. This is a great stop for meat eaters, vegetarians, vegans and gluten-free eaters alike at a price of around $10 a dish or less.

Named after the owners’ grandfather, Poppo, the restaurant was inspired by the love and kindness he showed everyone in his life. It’s evident in every dish that the creative minds behind them are passionate about what they’re doing. And visitors and locals alike love the results.

Their enthusiasm for creating a unique food experience is tasted in every bite, as well as the ambiance of the restaurant. The chefs care about the people they serve and use the highest quality ingredients in every dish to keep their customers happy and healthy.

They only serve antibiotic-free meats and drinks without high fructose corn syrup. You can get natural sodas, locally brewed beer, locally brewed kombucha, jarritos and more to go with your healthy fast food dish.

Whole fresh produce is used for each homemade dish, including locally sourced meats like Florida wild boar chorizo. Tortillas are made for each order as they come in. Spice mixes are made in house, and organic meats and produce are used whenever possible. Processed ingredients are always avoided.
