UPDATED: Taco Joint to open second branch at Mockingbird & Abrams
In old Sol's Nieto space.
"We're shooting for early April," said co-owner Corey McCauley. "We'll have a slightly bigger menu, but the big thing is that we're going to do breakfast all day there. My partner Jeffrey Kowitz was absolutely adamant about that. The kitchen will be set up such that we'll have enough space to do breakfast and day-time tacos all day."
They'll be open seven days a week and they'll also be open for dinner.
"Opening for dinner was a no-brainer, we got a lot of requests to stay open for dinner at the current location, but it wasn't feasible," Corey said. "At this new location, we're looking into doing beer and margaritas, too."
They've already started working on the new location, which just happens to be across the street from a branch of Fuzzy's, but the Taco Joint guys aren't concerned.
"They've got a great operation but we feel like we've got a great team here," Corey said. "There are similarities but if you look on block where there's a McDonald's, there's also a Burger King right across the street. Fuzzy's has a great product, our hats are off to them. But Jeff and I, we're not a franchise, we don't have outside investors, we've had to grow this slowly from within. Our customers know and understand that."
UPDATE: Now open, with alcohol, says Alice.
