The more tacos, the merrier! Dallas’ second Tacodeli restaurant recently opened its doors at Walnut Hill and North Central Expressway’s The Hill shopping center, which is also home to TreeHouse showroom.

The cult-fave, Austin-based taqueria offers more than 40 different tacos (including the classic Otto with organic refried black beans, bacon, avocado, and jack cheese; and the El Picosito with grilled beef tenderloin, chipotle sesame sauce, avocado, and queso fresco), made from scratch for both breakfast and lunch.

All of Tacodeli’s dressings, salsas, and sauces are made in-house. Also on the menu: dairy-free horchata, made with local produce and organic evaporated cane juice, plus chips made with organic masa.

Have a gluten allergy? Tacos ordered on a corn tortilla are 100-percent gluten-free.

Tacodeli founder and Mexico City native Roberto Espinosa and business partner Eric Wilkerson are huge advocates of local and sustainable sourcing, using certified organic and all-natural products (i.e. HeartBrand Ranch Akaushi beef, USDA organic and certified humane pork).

In addition to the Tacodeli in Dallas’ Sylvan Thirty district, two more locations are slated to open next year — both in the ever-expanding North Dallas suburb of Plano.

Tacodeli is open Mondays through Fridays, 7 am to 3 pm, and Saturdays and Sundays from 8 am to 3 pm. And, remember: Tacodeli is BYOB on the weekends.

Tacodeli, 8031 Walnut Hill, 214.206.8980.
