Cherrywood's hipster-tastic taco stand El Chilito will open a new location in the former Church's Chicken space on East 7th, according to a tweet from The Chronicle. The restaurant announced the new location at its ninth anniversary celebration over the weekend.
El Chilito has long had a second location in the works at 4501 Manchaca Road, which is slated to open in October. Carlos Rivero's El Chile Group says via press release that this new East 7th Chilito would open before the Manchaca location, though no specific date has been released. The El Chile Group also owns , owns El Chile, El Alma, and El Sapo, and has a fondness for switcheroos.
Notably, the East 7th space is a block from the Veracruz All Natural trailer parked at The Grackle and Tamale House East. Will it be taco wars?
