Beyonce did the folks at Revel Atlantic City a biiig favor last weekend by choosing the resort as the setting for her first post-baby performance. Thanks to her, Revel was able to capture a whole new audience that likely wouldn't have taken the time otherwise—like Michelle Obama and the girls, who were reportedly in attendance at the show.

A friend of ours who was lucky enough to score tickets said that while the singer indeed put on a stellar performance, another major highlight of the weekend actually took place outside Ovation Hall. Specifically, during a post-concert dinner at the Distrito Cantina food truck, which serves up freshly-prepared Mexican fast food. And according to our friend, the tacos alone were worth the trip.

The menu, which is designed to look like a vintage Lite-Brite board, offers a wide range of treats, from house-made tortilla chips with guacamole ($12) to goat tacos with orange habanero salsa and goat crema ($15). Tortas ($11-$15), tamales ($8), rice and beans ($4), and esquites ($7) are also available at the truck, which is open daily from 11am to 2am.

Distrito Cantina is actually an import from Philly, where Chef Jose Garces' popular Guapos Taco Truck has been hitting the streets since early 2011.

The best part about Revel's truck, though? It's indoors, so they can serve booze! Follow up your Mexican feast with a margarita or two at the neighboring Margarita Bar. Sure enough, the Revel casino is only a few steps away, so this could be seen as good news or bad news, but judging from our past experiences with casino food options, we're going to go ahead and say this is a blessing.
