Houston has no shortage of killer places to find a taco, but a new Downtown eatery promises to bring a unique twist to everyone’s favorite tortilla-wrapped treat, along with the city’s most absurd restaurant name.

CultureMap Houston reports that Dizzy Kaktus is waiting on final permission from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission to serve booze, but the doors are open at 301 Main inside the Sweeney, Coombs, and Fredericks Building in Downtown. The restaurant is a concept from the minds behind Pub Fiction and Irish Cowboy, and will serve up classic tacos and cocktails in a buzzy environment.

You’ll be able to score the restaurant’s Krispy Kaktus taco, featuring fried strips of the restaurant’s namesake and roasted peppers wrapped inside a tortilla shipped from Austin to Houston. Carnitas, steak, and chicken will also be on offer, in addition to the restaurant’s version of a Choco Taco featuring vanilla ice cream inside a waffle taco shell.

The restaurant is now open and serving up tacos, but you’ll have to wait a few more days to score any cocktails at Dizzy Kaktus.
