FULTON MARKET — Taqueria chain Tacombi has arrived in Chicago, opening this week just off Randolph’s bustling restaurant row.
The taco spot opened Wednesday at 126 N. Peoria St. The Fulton Market restaurant is the chain’s first in the Midwest, one of the 17 locations it operates across New York, Miami and the greater Washington D.C. area.
Founder Dario Wolos said Tacombi aims to “share and highlight the beauty of Mexican food and culture.”
“With Chicago being home to the best Mexican food in the country, we’re honored to share and be on this journey with the community,” Wolos said in a statement.
The 3,800-square-foot Fulton Market restaurant has an open layout where guests can see the kitchen in action, with several skylights throughout to allow for natural light.
Guests order at the front counter from a variety of tacos, quesadillas and sides ranging from $4.98-$9.98. Types of tacos include Al Pastor, Carne Asada, Beef Birria, Baja Crispy Fish, Mushroom and Pollo Yucateco.
Tacombi also has a variety of cocktails including classic a margarita, spicy margarita, paloma, and a spiked sandia featuring tequila, watermelon, and lime. Nonalcoholic options include a variety of aqua frescas like pineapple, jamaica and more.
Tacombi joins several other Latin restaurants and taco spots on Restaurant Row, including Cruz Blanca, Leña Brava, Bodega Taqueria y Tequila, Bar Takito, Velvet Taco, La Josie, Federales and Texan Taco Bar.
Tacombi’s nationwide expansion comes after the company raised $27.5 million last year from investors, announcing plans to open 75 new locations across the country, according to Crain’s New York.
Tacombi is open 11 a.m.-11 p.m. daily.
