New Taqueria Opens in Arlandria

The new Taqueria Senora Lola is now open at 3901 Mount Vernon Avenue in Arlandria.

Owner Oswaldo Salinas said the restaurant — adjacent to Salinas’ other eateryLilian’s Restaurant, opened two weeks ago and had a grand opening event this past Saturday.

“We had kids come by and had ice cream,” Salinas said. “People have really enjoyed it so far.”

There is no shortage of Latin cuisine in Arlandria, but Salinas said he wanted to open something that was taqueria specific.

The restaurant offers a variety of tacos at $3.50 apiece and sandwiches for $8.95. There are also salad bowls, burritos, enchiladas and more Mexican cuisine staples for around $10.

For those visiting for the first time, Salinas recommended trying the restaurant’s tortas with Oaxaca cheese.

The restaurant is currently applying for an ABC permit, and Salinas said he hopes to add margaritas and piña coladas to go with tacos.
