While the chips and salsa before your meal aren't free like some other spots in town, their house made salsa and chips come with enough kick and flavor to make it worth tasting.

One of the things that makes Stan's Tacos stand out compared to other taco spots in west Michigan is how bright and colorful their locations are. They make you feel like you've joined the party, and that it's 5 o'clock on the beach, even if it's snowy and 2 in the afternoon on a random Tuesday in the dead of winter.

Make sure when you stop in that you grab your picture with their decked out surfer van. I was lucky enough to be seated right in front of it, so I was able to snag an instagram selfie without being too much of a weirdo.
