Mighty Bird, the fast-food taco restaurant, quietly closed its last remaining brick and mortar location on West Anderson Lane. According to a message posted in May on its Facebook and website, future plans are unknown. The listed number is currently disconnected.
The restaurant, which opened in 2013 and focused on rotisserie chicken and homemade tortillas, once had two locations and a truck. The menu was put together by chef Camden Stuerzenberger, formerly of the shuttered Fork & Vine who is now opening Phoebe’s Diner, the new venture from the owners of Winebelly.
There’s another rising restaurant eager to fill the taco void in North Shoal Creek. OneTaco, which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, just announced its plans to occupy the Anderson Lane location. It also took over Mighty Bird’s north location of Mighty Bird near 183 last year.
Projected to open in September, this will be OneTaco’s second brick and mortar for what started as a food trailer in 2009 (though it still maintains a mobile presence at Little Woodrow’s on West 6th Street). Expect a similar menu of agua frescas, street corn, queso, and of course, tacos (including breakfast options like The Big Kahuna, “The Official Austin Marathon Taco,” with a fried egg, sausage, egg, and cheese).
