When you think of Deep Ellum, you might think of a hipster, grungy, dive bar type atmosphere but step inside Elm St restaurant Tiki Loco and you’ll be transported to a colorful paradise!

Updated January 2022


Tiki Loco opened several years ago, bringing a 100% plant based fast casual restaurant to the area which was a nice change from the burger and bbq options. But actually, you can still get burgers and bbq at Tiki Loco - they’re just all made using vegan meats or substitutes like jackfruit.


We had the bbq “pork” tacos and couldn’t tell they weren’t meat in the slightest, and yes that means they were delicious! We also tried a seasonal pumpkin smoothie - so good - but they have a menu of a dozen smoothies and juices to choose from any morning! And that also means that Tiki Loco serves breakfast!


Stop in for a “soyrizo” or tofu breakfast taco or head to Novel Deep Ellum's IGTV to watch Tiki Loco show off how to make your own at home!
