Finally a restaurant that might stick in the the former Hard Times Chili space. It was announced today that Dos Taquitos owners will be teaming up with Hibernian owners to create a Mexican restaurant, called Dos Taquitos Xoco, in the space that was most recently The Diner (which closed last November) and before that, Hard Times Chili (which closed in 2009) in the Creamery Building.
I expect this to be a huge hit on Glenwood and this space. One of the only restaurant types not present on Glenwood is proper Mexican (unless you consider the tex-mex of Armadillo Grill....but this will surely be different).
Dos Taquitos restaurateur Carlos Salamanca will oversee the menu, the kitchen and the dining room, while the Hibernian Co. will manage the business end, Barfield said. The new restaurant is set up as a separate limited liability company.
The “Xoco” in the name is derived from an Aztec word meaning “little sister,” a tip of the sombrero to the original Dos Taquitos on Creedmoor Road, about one mile north of Crabtree Valley Mall.
