Tacodeli, Austin’s favorite authentic taqueria that’s been serving up made-from-scratch tacos since 1999, is expanding to Dallas. The first Tacodeli location outside of Central Texas, the new Dallas Tacodeli will be located at 1818 Sylvan Ave., in the contemporary Sylvan Thirty development in West Dallas, just north of I-30. Scheduled to open by mid 2015 in a residential neighborhood alongside local retailers, Tacodeli Dallas will be the sixth location for the homegrown taqueria, and is sure to become the ultimate taco destination in the area.
The menu at the new Dallas Tacodeli will include all the crave-worthy favorites taco lovers can’t get enough of, from the iconic Cowboy Taco, with beef tenderloin, grilled corn, caramelized onions and roasted peppers, to the Frontera Fundido Chicken Taco, with grilled chicken breast, Monterrey jack cheese and sautéed poblanos and onions, and the Mojo Fish Taco, with line-caught Texas Gulf Coast drum fillets grilled with a mojo-garlic sauce and garnished with homemade guacamole and pico de gallo.
The menu features more than 40 taco varieties, including daily specials, breakfast tacos, savory taco lunch favorites, vegetarian and seafood tacos, salads and sides, award-winning starters and salsas, including a Tacodeli original, the signature Salsa Doña, a spicy jalapeño garlic salsa with a kick — all made from scratch with fresh ingredients, many of which will be organic and locally sourced.
Since Tacodeli’s inception nearly 16 years ago, founder Roberto Espinosa, inspired by the unique flavors of Mexico City, has had a commitment to culinary creativity, fresh and organic ingredients and locally sourced products. For the new Dallas location, Tacodeli will continue to source its organic eggs from Vital Farms, and will source as many local ingredients as possible, including produce and meats.
“We want to keep growing Tacodeli, and Dallas is a vibrant city that we feel like will be a great fit,” Espinosa says. “Dallas has a great taco culture, and we are excited to be part of it. Also, my business partner and co-owner Eric Wilkerson is from Dallas. It’s particularly exciting to open one of our restaurants in his hometown, and we’re looking forward to serving our neighbors in West Dallas and Oak Cliff.”
