BUCKTOWN — Bucktown is getting a new taco restaurant in the former home of Luella’s Gospel Bird.
Boca Loca Taqueria, 2009 N. Damen Ave., will open this fall, owner Marc Wuenschel said.
The taco spot is Wuenschel’s second Bucktown opening this year. Last month he opened Savannah Luncheonette, 1954 W. Armitage Ave., just around the corner from Boca Loca.
Boca Loca replaces Luella’s Gospel Bird, which closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, Eater reported.
Wuenschel said he is aiming for an October opening.
A sister restaurant, Boca Loca Cantina, will also open in River North this fall.
