Changes are coming to Valentina’s Tex Mex BBQ, with an expansion and a move, according to Austin360. The family is getting bigger with a second truck: Violet Taco. It will be set up at the new East Austin bar the Craftsman starting on Sunday, May 2. The trailer will dish out breakfast tacos and other Tex-Mex fare, not including the baby. It will be open every day from 5 p.m.-2-a.m.

Then, the original trailer is also making the movie south on May 4 to 7612 Brodie Lane because its current host, Star Bar, is undergoing an expansion. There are plans to come back to the downtown bar after the renovations are finished, projected to be sometime this fall.
