What happened to the two taco places that were supposed to open at UT Southwestern? Rusty Taco and the Maple and Motor version? Are they still in the works?
The Rusty Taco location is already up and running. They opened at 5350 Harry Hines across from UTSW last October. They are also open in College Station and St. Paul, Minnesota.
I asked Jack “Harvey” Perkins of Maple and Motor for an update on ocaTaco. He replied: “We hope to take possession next Tuesday at the latest. If that happens, we can open Monday the 13th. We will open for lunch only for the first four weeks. After that it is breakfast and lunch with a full coffee/espresso bar M-F. This will be the only location we will be doing at UTSW. There will be a friends and family night some time the week of the 6th. I would invite you, but you wouldn’t come.”
