Owners Laura & Ernie Rodriguez open their new Mexican restaurant named Tepeyac Taquitos at noon this Saturday at 201 W Carrillo St., near the intersection of Carrillo & De La Vina. The grand opening will be featuring live Spanish guitar music by Anthony Ybarra (12-5pm) and half price taquitos all day. Laura tells me that her husband’s grandmother started the first Tepeyac Taquitos in Durango Mexico in 1950 and it is still there, being run by his one (out of 10) uncles that is still in Mexico.
The main menu at Tepeyac Taquitos is simple: meat taquitos $1.30 (shredded beef, ground beef or chicken), veggie taquitos $1.10 (potato, rajas, or bean) and Surtido (meaning one of each) is $6.00. Other items are also available. Scheduled hours are Sun-Thu 11am-9pm, Fri-Sat 11am-11pm. For more information call 899-7755 or visit tepeyactaquitos.com.
