One of Fayetteville’s most popular taco spots will soon have a downtown location.
According to signs that were recently placed on the building, Burrito Loco is set to open at 1 E. Center Street, Suite 160, in the space formerly home to Bouchee Bistro.
Burrito Loco got its start in the back of the Columbia Mex convenience store at 2155 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., and eventually grew to take over most of the space. The restaurant specializes in tacos, burritos, tortas, and other authentic Mexican cuisine.
The owners of the restaurant are also involved in the Mr. Taco Loco restaurant at 1701 S. School Ave. Update: According to Juan Bahena, one of partners with Burrito Loco, Mr. Taco Loco was created by relatives, but is not affiliated with Burrito Loco.
No opening date has been announced for the new restaurant, but renovations are underway. We’ll keep you posted if we hear anything.
