Taco favorite Veracruz All Natural is permanently closing its North Burnet restaurant. The 9003 Waterford Centre Boulevard building will be demolished for a condominium development in June, as revealed by the Facebook announcement. The location had already been temporarily shuttered as part of the city order halting dine-in service at all restaurants.
This shutter also includes Machine Head Coffee’s location, which opened within the Veracruz restaurant. The coffee shop’s Facebook post revealed that the address’s last day had been planned for Saturday, June 6 before the pandemic. It’s also looking for a new location.
“Our North Austin brick-and-mortar has been a special location for us,” wrote Veracruz’s Facebook announcement. “We were able to expand our menu there, build out a space that aligned with our design aesthetic, see Maritza Vazquez and Reyna Vazquez’s mother play an important role in the kitchen, Maritza’s daughter Lis Mariscal grow as a leader, and collaborate with our dear friend Nolan Green from Machine Head Coffee.”
Veracruz’s other locations —the Round Rock restaurant and the trucks on Menchaca Road and Webberville Road — are currently open for takeout service. The Mueller truck is also currently closed for now.
The North Shoal Creek restaurant, which opened in 2017, had been Veracruz’s only Austin proper physical restaurant. Co-owners Maritza and Reyna Vazquez plan on building a new brick-and-mortar in East Austin at the Webberville truck address, though, at some point.
