We’re less than a week away from the much anticipated Gold Coast debut of Velvet Taco—a Texas-based chain that has a unique take on tacos. Slated to open on Monday over at 1110 N. State Street, Chicago will be the first Velvet Taco location outside of Texas, and after just a quick glance at the menu, we’re happy they chose us for their first out-of-state venture.
The new restaurant will be just a few short steps from the infamous Viagra Triangle, and given their late night hours, we’re sure it will be a big hit among the nightlife crowd that fills this lively part of downtown Chicago each and every weekend.
As for what to expect, this isn’t your normal Mexican-inspired taco joint. Instead, plenty of unique offerings will be available here that range from Buffalo or Rotisserie Chicken tacos to Bacon Burger or Mediterranean Calamari tacos.
As of now, the Chicago hours of operation are as follows: Monday through Thursday - 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.; Friday 11 a.m. to 4 a.m.; Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 a.m.; Sunday 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. For more information about the new Velvet Taco Chicago, check out their website, or give ‘em a follow on Facebook here!
