Houston has plenty of excellent tacos, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t always more room for more tortilla-wrapped deliciousness. Which is why it’s always exciting to see a new arrival ot the city’s taco scene, like Austin’s beloved Tacodeli.
Rumors have swirled for at least a year about Tacodeli’s imminent arrival in Houston, and an announcement today confirms that the Austin-based taqueria will open its first Houston location at 1902 Washington Ave later this year.
For the uninitiated, Tacodeli, founded in 1999, is a fave among Austinites thanks to its scratch-made ingredients and super fast service. Many of the restaurant’s offerings are organic and locally-sourced, in addition to a solid menu of vegan and vegetarian options. Vegan tacos can be hard to come by in H-Town, but that will all soon change with the arrival of Tacodeli.
"I've been a huge fan of the Houston restaurant scene since I first started visiting the city back in the 80's! It is very exciting to know that we will finally be able to sling tacos in a city with some serious culinary heritage," co-founder Roberto Espinosa said in a statement. "We are especially excited to be opening in a unique part of the city along Washington Avenue with great neighbors such as B&B Butchers, Julep, and soon-to-open Platypus Brewing in our building."
Tacodeli is currently planning for a Fall 2016 opening. Stay tuned for more details on its arrival.
