One of Fort Worth’s most popular and longest-running food trucks has found a new parking place that won’t require wheels.
Sarah Castillo, founder of Taco Heads (subtitle: Damn. Fine. Tacos.) and her managing partner Jacob Watson announced Tuesday morning that they’ll open their first brick-and-mortar taco shop at 119 South Main St., in the developing South Main Village.
Castillo, a native of Fort Worth’s South Side, started Taco Heads as a food trailer in 2010. A pioneer on the Fort Worth food-truck scene, it was familiar from its frequent appearances near the intersection of West Seventh and Carroll Streets, where it drew business from the late-night bar crowd.
“I couldn’t possibly think of a better place to open our first restaurant ... without wheels,” Castillo says in a release about the South Main Village location. “We are excited to be able to offer our current customers throughout the day and evening (and not just late night behind a loud, bustling 7th Street bar).”
Castillo and Watson plan a bigger menu for the restaurant, adding more tacos, as well as ceviche, elote, and Saturday and Sunday brunch. There will also be a full bar and a rooftop bar with a view of the downtown skyline. A target date has not been announced.
