Welcome Revolver Taco Lounge4.6.17
This week on the Neighborhood Spotlight we will be looking at the new joint in town, the Revolver Taco Lounge. The family-owned favorite, the Revolver Taco Lounge has just opened up their second location in the heart of Deep Ellum. They’re known to serve food recipes from the small town street fair and celebration throughout Mexico and only offer authentic Mexican dishes.
Their one of a kind tacos is not only scrumptious but cheap as well. The small menu will consist of $2.50 to $3.00 tacos and a few Revolver Tacos Lounge favorites – they end goal is to expand the menu, but keep it small until the lounge can establish their roots in the Deep Ellum area.
Recently, the Dallas Observer did an interview, prior to opening night with the owner of the Revolver Taco Lounge, Regino Rojas. Beth Rankin, the Dallas Observer Food & Drink reporter, discussed with Rojas about how the taco kingdom came about and what the future holds for the Revolver Taco Lounge.
For Rojas, the American dream is not an abstract concept. Born and raised in Michoacán, Mexico, Rojas left home at age 15 and crossed the border into the United States by foot.
Rojas originally opened the first Revolver Taco Lounge, in part, to employ his mother — family is a big part of Rojas’ businesses. As an immigrant, the path to entrepreneurship hasn’t always been easy, but now, more than ever, Rojas says, he’s determined to remind people that the American dream isn’t just for people who were born in this country.
Soul is a big part of Rojas’ food; each and every taco, from the pulpo to a vegetarian taco filled with Mexican squash, feels like a slice of time and place. Even when utterly simple, Rojas’ tacos are exquisite; the love and history and attention is apparent in every single bite. With this new restaurant, Rojas is poised to become the best taco-slinger in Dallas.
At the moment the local taco joint is BYOB (which who doesn’t love BYOB?), so bring your friends and drinks come out to enjoy the Mexican delight. Rojas is ready to serve, are you ready to eat?
