Taco Heads Keeps Trucking with a Brick and Mortar

Taco Heads

The brick and mortar location for local favorite, Taco Heads, opened at 1812 Montgomery St. in the former Trevino’s location on Jan. 8.

Started by local lady Sarah Castillo, Taco Heads opened as one of the city’s first food trucks in October of 2009. The truck at Seventh and Crockett streets serves patrons going into and out of nearby bars, and it’s not going anywhere despite the new location. “The trucks will exist forever and always,” said Managing Partner Jacob Watson.

Local firm Studio 97W designed the petite space that features a modern exterior and an interior with tufted benches and a palette of turquoise and gold. A patio will open after Taco Heads obtains a permit from the city and will connect the main dining area to a neighboring building which will be the full-service bar.

“The goal is to create a haven for Texans and the like to relax and kick back with a taco and beer and watch the sun go down or rise over our great city,” Watson added.

Texas Monthly named Taco Heads’ carnitas taco one of “The 120 Tacos You Must Eat Before You Die” last year. The restaurant menu serves the same popular menu items including the traditional and breakfast tacos that have made the truck famous, plus appetizers, signature tacos, craft beers and cocktails.
