“Dallas Taco Takeover” brings 1,400 fans to The Foundry to eat tacos, drink ice-cold Topo Chicos, bob for churos at new annual event


These mariachis and I had plenty to sing about today at Dallas Taco Takeover at The Foundry, where I was a judge. So many tacos, so much sun, so much fun. The best of the tacos was a griddled cheese number from La Botana Taco Bar, its molten cheese, chicharrones and habanero salsa all tucked into a soft flour tortilla. (There were some creamy carnitas and crispy puffy tacos that were damn good, too.)

Organizers of the Taco Takeover deemed their first annual taco-eating festival a success, vowing to return next year with a bigger venue, more taco vendors and plenty of ice cold Topo Chico.

The festival featured notable local taquerias like La Ventana and La Botana Taco Bar, a mobile kitchen, to The Foundry, where 1,400 paying fans ate their fill of unlimited tacos, nachos, churros, paletas, plus Modelo beer and Topo Chico.
