One particular of North Texas’ most beloved taco outlets of the last decade, Revolver Taco Lounge, is expected to reopen in Fort Truly worth in summer time 2021, confirms operator Regino Rojas.
Revolver opened in Fort Value in 2011 and shut in 2017. But what Fort Truly worth missing, Dallas gained: Revolver Taco Lounge opened in Deep Ellum in 2017. That cafe continues to be in procedure, with an added fine-eating taco tasting cafe named La Resistencia. (If you have not attempted it, it is outstanding.)
But ahead of Fort Well worth closed, Strange Food items America Television set identity Andrew Zimmern manufactured the trek west and declared that Revolver produced “some of very best Michoacán food stuff you can come across outside of Mexico.” His spotlight on Dallas-Fort Value aired on the Travel Channel in 2014. He praised the restaurant’s do-it-yourself tortillas and birria de chivo.
It has since acquired its location as an “adventuresome” restaurant, our critic wrote in 2014, with lengua (tongue), cabeza (beef cheeks and head) on the menu together with duck breast, al pastor and pulpo (octopus). Revolver has conveniently topped the list as a single of the finest taquerias in North Texas, if not the point out.
When Revolver returns to Fort Worthy of, it’ll move into a former Taco Diner cafe that shut at the conclude of 2020 in Sundance Sq.. Texas Regular claimed Rojas’ plans for the Fort Value restaurant initially.
“Now, we get the prospect to go again and showcase what we have discovered in this organization,” Rojas tells The Dallas Early morning Information.
Obtaining back to Fort Value was element of the system, Rojas instructed the Fort Worthy of Star-Telegram. “I just didn’t know when was the proper minute,” he’s quoted as stating. And is for the duration of a world pandemic the suitable instant? “I often like challenges. I like to battle back,” he tells Bud Kennedy.
Notably, the Fort Well worth cafe will have two ideas in 1: a more casual Revolver Taco Lounge and a far more official dining room named Purepecha.
If that names appears acquainted, which is mainly because Purepecha 1st opened in Deep Ellum, then was reconfigured into the La Resistencia taco tasting. Purepecha is Regino and his mom Juanita Rojas’ exclusive location to provide exquisite Michoacán dishes that do not get the job done in the brief-assistance structure at Revolver. Regino Rojas said back in 2016 that Purepecha need to sense like diners are “coming to our home” to consume. Which would be a uncommon address: The owner was named a James Beard semifinalist for Most effective Chef: Southwest in 2018 and 2019 and for Most effective Chef: Texas in 2020 (when the category improved to give the Lone Star Point out its possess spotlight).
Regino Rojas is undoubtedly one particular of the very best chefs in Dallas-Fort Worthy of, and with his mother becoming a member of him all over again in the kitchen, the foods has the possible to be even better.
The new Revolver Taco Lounge and Purepecha cafe will be at 156 W. 4th St., Fort Value. Revolver and its adjoining cafe La Resistencia will continue being in Deep Ellum, at 2701 Main St., Dallas.
