A new Memphis restaurant by Belly Acres owners Ben McLean & Chef Rob Ray is now open and offers 24 different kinds of street tacos.
Tennessee Taco Company is not a Mexican restaurant, but will have 24 different kinds of street tacos “you’ve probably never eaten before”. Chef Rob Ray calls them “progressive tacos.” Whether you prefer savory beef, chicken, pork, fish, or vegetables, there’s a taco for everyone. Other menu options include pots o’tots, fresh guacamole, and doughnuts of the day.
Partner Ben McLean says, “We are excited to bring a Texas inspired, Tennessee perfected Taco concept to Memphis. We have the pleasure of doing what we love to do, creating smiles with food and service and helping make Memphis the culinary capital of Tennessee!”
Tennessee Taco Company will be open 7 days a week from 11am to 10pm. It is located at 3295 Poplar Avenue #101 (in the old Los Compadres spot).
