You should just go ahead and start a line now because the latest member of Austin's culinary exports, Tacodeli, is opening the doors to its first ever Houston location on Tuesday, April 11. Landing at 1902 Washington, the taqueria will bring a menu of breakfast and lunch tacos, featuring locally sourced and organic filler with meaty and vegetarian options, to a casual setting that includes plenty of seating both inside and on a covered patio.
If dietary restrictions are at the forefront of your every dining experience, the entire Tacodeli menu can be made gluten-free simply by ordering corn tortillas. You'll also find seafood, salad and soup options, and numerous salsas, including the signature jalapeño garlic Salsa Doña.
The restaurant was founded by chef and Mexico City native Roberto Espinosa, who opened the first location at Barton Skyway and Spyglass in Austin in 1999, inspired by his upbringing and travels in Mexico. Today the empire, which includes six locations among Austin and Dallas (seven counting Houston), is also owned and run by Espinosa's business partner Eric Wilkerson.
