A worker told EVG correspondent Steven that the space will be a taco shop... perhaps similiar to the previous tenant — Otto's Tacos here between St. Mark's Place and Ninth Street. That quick-serve tacqueria closed at the start of the PAUSE in March 2020, and never reopened.
As we've noted, a lot of things have come and gone here through the years, such as Good Guys, a Subway (sandwich shop), part of a Max Brenner outpost and Burritoville. (Burritoville!)
It’s too bad this place shut down. A taco shop should have been able to survive. They had a great crew there but then everyone left and they couldn’t keep a stable team in place. There was so much turnover. I finally gave up on them at least a year or so before the pandemic hit because the quality of the food went down. It’s a loss because they had the best tacos in the neighborhood at one time.
I tried them a few times, the food was great but the portions were too small for the price. Tacos Cuautla Morelos on 9th is still the best in the neighborhood.
I agree. Tacos Morelos never disappoints.
Ahhh Burritoville - site of my 2002 food poisoning, which rocketed me into permanent vegetarianism. Miss that place!
Burritoville! The free chips and salsa was the last of its kind.
And remember in the 80s, there was the European bakery—the owner, Rudy Bader, was Swiss from Basel—called Encore.
