You better get to the Reverence before 6pm on a Tuesday if you want to sit down. It’s $3 taco night, with $3 Rio Bravo tinnies to boot, and the families and the upwardly mobile of Footscray come prepared. It’s a tactical assault – punters load up with three beers at once to avoid repeat queuing, and parents aren’t above using kids as table placeholders. The ritual plays out weekly and shows just how well Footscray knows and loves this local. And what’s not to love? Dia de los muertos tat jostles with band posters on the walls, and art deco lamps illuminate diner booths. Keeping you entertained is a high priority. There’s foosball in the central courtyard/smoker’s terrarium, and pool in the front room, but most kids come for the gigs out back – rock played loud, folk filled with whimsy and acoustic jams to cushion your Sunday woes. A DJ takes over the front bar on Fridays, and weekly Mind Out trivia is almost as hectic as taco night. Keeping everything in order is Jack – the resident hound who does the rounds, nosing for pats and scraps. It's mostly Mexicano – burritos and taquitos and hot sauce hotter than the sun – or you can grab a pizza for $12. Either way most of the menu can be vegan and gluten-free, because they’re nice like that here. What a peach.
