BEST Taco Shop to open in Downtown Tiffin

Tiffin-Seneca Economic Partnership

TIFFIN – BEST Taco Shop & Breakfast Spot, a veteran-owned taqueria, has announced plans to open in mid-May at 45 S. Washington St., across from The Ritz Theatre in Downtown Tiffin.

The restaurant gets its name for the acronym for Bacon, Eggs and Street Tacos, as a reference to the menu, which will include popular items such as California-inspired and baja-style street tacos, homemade fire-roasted salsa and guacamole, burritos, quesadillas, traditional sides, an Ohio-based queso and breakfast items; including breakfast tacos and burritos, omelets and fresh fruits. The restaurant will also have many vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and low carb options.

Owner/operator Jeff Snavely, a Tiffin Columbian High School graduate, served in the U.S. Army and then lived in Arizona and California for a few years before returning to Tiffin in 2014. He has been working on making the restaurant a reality after more than two years of planning and investments.

Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz is excited to see the new eatery opening.

“Congratulations to Jeff Snavely on the opening of B.E.S.T. I’m proud that we continue to attract new, exciting businesses in Downtown Tiffin,” he said.

While the restaurant will be open for dine-in in the near future, the preferred service method is carry-out and delivery for the time being. For hours and information, find B.E.S.T. on Facebook and look for their website with full menu soon. For hiring information, email resumes to
