Taqueria Resurrection

Just walked by the former Oaxaca Taqueria, which is getting a festive red paint job in preparation for its reopening, under new management, as a taqueria. The folks outside said only that it will be "very different" than the previous one.

  1. let's hope the biggest difference is "better tacos." Seriously, if you're going to open up a taco place this close to Chavelas, you really need to step it up.

  2. Isn't Chavelas charging $3 for a taco? I would never EVER pay that much. $1.00-$1.50 is all you need for a delicious taco. Maybe this new place will have better prices because it's not as fancy?

  3. here's hoping this place is cheap AND delicious. I was really just commenting on the taste, as I don't remember the prices being that much different between Oaxaca and Chavelas, though I usually only get tacos at Chavelas during their $2 happy hour. Is there a place around here that sells $1 tacos?

  4. Oh, yes, taste is very important. I won't buy a gross taco even if it's a dollar, haha. If they ARE the same price, competition will be veerrry tough.

    Annnnd sadly no, no dollar tacos around here. :[ I usually get them from Mexican take out restaurants around the city. If Oaxaca has cheap and delicious tacos I will probably be eat there all the time. Right now I eat lots n lots of $2 dumplings from Roti and Dumpling or $2 Jamaican patties from Golden Krust! Mmmm

  5. I'd say $3 is the norm for tacos around here.

    That said, at the next Community Board 8 meeting, a place called "Gueros Inc." at 605 Prospect Place (so this location) is applying for a liquor license.
