Taco Mama settles on location for Trussville restaurant
From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
TRUSSVILLE — After announcing plans for a Trussville restaurant in April, Taco Mama management has decided on the exact location for its newest eatery and announced that it plans to open this fall.
The shopping center at 2050 Gadsden Highway has emerged as the choice, according to the Birmingham Business Journal. The U.S. Highway 11 shopping center is also the home to Metro Diner and Chicken Salad Chick.
In April, Dillan Reed, who works at the Mountain Brook location, said the owners were still in the process of finding an exact location. He said they were narrowing it down and had three options. One of those was in the Downtown Entertainment District before the U.S. 11 location emerged as the final choice.
“Friends from Trussville have been asking for some time when we were going to open a Taco Mama in their community,” Will Haver, founder of Taco Mama told the BBJ. “We told them when the right opportunity came along we would jump in and it finally happened. We look for like-minded communities and Trussville fits the bill. Our unique, fresh food, and creative menu, in a laid-back, fun atmosphere and great patio; it’s really a perfect fit.”
According to sources familiar with the deal, Taco Mama will locate in the north end of the building on the opposite end from Metro Diner.
In April, Reed said it will take six to eight months for them to establish the location and open. The new restaurant would create about 35 jobs.
Taco Mama started in The Crestline Village in Mountain Brook in 2011. Since then, several locations have been opened in metro Birmingham.
The restaurant prides itself in its “tasty tacos and margaritas.”
Taco Mama was named “Best Family-Friendly Restaurant in 2017” by Birmingham Magazine.
