A fun atmosphere, lots of plants and a resort-like patio with linen covers to shield the sun, Taquero opened in 2020 and we finally made it in to see what their new location was all about!
Updated January 2022
Taquero originally sat in West Dallas down from Trinity Groves, as an outdoor-only plant-filled patio. It was a total hole-in-the-wall taqueria but then it closed sadly. Good news came via an Instagram announcement that a new location would be coming soon, and that looked like a reopening in the former 1950’s retro gas station turned Pints and Quarts home, on Ross and Greenville!
Taquero swapped out fast casual for sit-down, with an interior dining space, and that same colorful, glamorous decor and greenery! Outside, there’s a covered patio with new wooden structures, enclosing the tables with white linen curtains, making for a resort like feel. Inside, find concrete floors, midcentury chairs, turquoise tile and hanging ferns for a tropical, colorful atmosphere, perfect for a weekend brunch or lively date night!
FOOD & DRINK
Serving food from the Mexican state of San Luis Potosí, find 11 types of tacos like pulpito (baby octopus), Pio-Pio (chicken marinated in achiote paste), and Quiroga (carnitas marinated in dried pepper). You’ll also find a delicious, chocolate-y mole negro along with many other mains from fish to fajitas to the super trendy huitlachoche quesadilla. Make sure to also try the Oaxaca queso with mozzarella, cheddar and queso asadero, plus corn and brisket! And pair your food with a fresh marg or aqua Fresca!
So mark this modern Mexican restaurant on your list, especially if you’re out on Greenville and want to try something new! It’s really fun and vibrant, and has great food to pair
