A new Allandale bar and restaurant has raised eyebrows by taking the name of a legendary watering hole: Taco Flats. The original's cheap food and even cheaper beer transformed it into a hippie landmark and key player in the 70's music scene. Owner Simon Madera wants to keep the community atmosphere but, with the former owners' blessing, give the booze and food a serious upgrade. The new Taco Flats will serve tacos on handmade tortillas, including pastor tacos made on a trompo, and offer a menu of tequila cocktails and craft beer. Take a look around the colorful, casual space, and check out the full menu below.
Taco Flats will open tomorrow at 4 p.m. at 5520 Burnet Road. Hours are Monday - Friday 4 p.m. - 12 a.m., Saturdays 11 a.m. - 1 a.m., and Sundays 11 a.m. - 12 a.m.
