Quicks Hole Taqueria
Quicks Hole Taqueria located at 6 Luscombe Avenue in Woods Hole is a unique combo of Baja California surfer hangout meets New England clam shack. Open mid-May to late September, this seasonal restaurant specializes in tacos, burritos, salads and from-scratch soups like watermelon gazpacho and quahog chowder made the traditional way with bacon and roasted corn.
Casual, quick service makes it possible to down your sangria and wipe your mouth with the remnants of their best-selling lobster taco without missing the Martha’s Vineyard ferries that leave hourly from across the street. For those staying on the mainland, “you will find yourself making excuses to eat there at least once a day,” says the Washington Post in a travelogue of the best things in Woods Hole.
Committed to the farm-to-table movement, Quicks Hole sources local greens for their killer salads, Morning Glory Farm tomatoes for that fresh pico-de-gallo, hot chiles from Nobska Farms and incredible pea greens from Allen Farms to top their famous lobster rolls. A writer from Edible Cape Cod remarked — after the food arrived – that his party felt “like four road-hard gold panners stuck in a gilded moment.”
“Bright, lively tacos shake things up in a fiesta of flavors with sides that kick it up a notch,” says Cape Cod Magazine. Don’t miss the all-you-can-eat salsa bar with house made treats like Habanero Peach and Knock Your Socks Off.
One visit and you will understand why locals call Quicks Hole “wicked fresh.”
