The Taco Stand Downtown
A True Tijuana Taqueria coming to downtown!
With solid family recipes and a fridge stocked with Mexican Coca-Cola, The Taco Stand is ringing in the New Year with an announcement that deserves a fiesta! Inspired by the food stands of Tijuana, La Jolla’s favorite taquería is about to open a second location that’s guaranteed to spice up downtown’s culinary scene.
Located on 645 B Street in the heart of downtown, The Taco Stand is expected to open its doors during the first week of January. This 1,500 square foot Mexican eatery is not your regular one-stop-taco-shop. The fresh location aims to create a bright spot that will allow patrons to escape the chaotic downtown atmosphere and be transported to a uniquely-festive, south-of-the-border world.
The zesty menu, motivated by traditional Latin American family recipes, will remain the same. The eatery offers Burritos, such as the Chorizo & Egg, Al Pastor and Camaron with grilled shrimp, any time of day. Deliciously fresh items made from scratch daily also give foodies something to taco ‘bout. For example, the Nopal Taco with grilled cactus, Latin Corn on the Cob and Sonora Taco with 100% certified Angus beef. Not to mention, The Taco Stand’s counter service makes grabbing lunch convenient for downtown’s fast-paced residents and workers.
Keeping with its authentic old-world charm, the new location’s décor is characteristic of a traditional Tijuana taco stand with a scrap-metal, rectangular enclosure that displays the eatery’s menu in bright colors. To the left lie barstools that line the stand and offer a view into the open-air kitchen. Tables sit below high ceilings with exposed, wooden beams and a mural that pays respect to a Tijuana artist encompasses the main wall.
Now there is no need to drive south-of-the-border to satisfy those cravings for a taquería with authentic Mexican fixings! The Taco Stand is delivering a lot more than Latin cuisine to downtown, it’s also adding rich culture to the area.
