Ambitious Greenway Plaza Taco Restaurant Closes for Good After Just Six Months

This Mexico City Styled Dream Cannot Live Up to Reality

BY // 01.07.19

For six months, taco-slinging husband-and-wife duo Scott and Jenni Tranweaver were living the dream. But now, it’s time to wake up.

Dream Tacos TX, the culinary couple’s Greenway Plaza spot that served up a “wanderlust” menu of traditional-meets-travel tacos, has shuttered after just six months. Before it opened, it was a Jenni’s Noodle House, the Tranweavers’ original Vietnamese eatery. The other three Jenni’s locations are still open.

Dream Taco TX posted a goodbye message on Facebook Sunday afternoon. “#rip @dreamtacostex. #THANKYOU for supporting dreamtacostx during our dreamy reality … We dreamed awake for a few months and have closed our taco dreams for now,” the post reads.

The eclectic menu was a blend of fresh, homemade tortillas and traditional Mexican styles with innovative ingredients, such as Hawaii-inspired garlic shrimp.

The Tranweavers offered up eight breakfast tacos and 12 lunch and dinner tacos including chicken fajita and pork pastor tacos. And it was no vegan or vegetarian left behind, thanks to the likes of vegan posole and mushroom and poblano morning tacos.

Sauce was an important component, often veering towards hot, hot, heat from Serranos and ghost peppers. Diners could cool off with in-house chamoy, sake mojitos and the signature Dream Juice with tajin.

It looks like it was only just a dream due to low traffic. No word on if the closing has anything to do with Fusion Taco-spin-off, Fusion Eats, opening up in nearby 9 Greenway Plaza in July.

It’s unclear what the Tranweavers will cook up next, and if they’ll attempt to open a new restaurant in the same spot that’s seen low diner turnout for two different concepts now. One thing’s for sure — we can count on this foodie couple to dream on.
