New taco shop, Taco Rock 2 is opening today at the western edge of Alexandria.
Chef Mike Cordero announced in a press release that the spin-off of Rosslyn-based Taco Rock is opening at 6548 Little River Turnpike in the Pinecrest Plaza shopping center.
“Taco Rock 2 is Chef Mike Cordero’s ninth Northern Virginia restaurant location and seats 75 guests with 20 barstools centered around the tequila bar,” the company said in a press release. “New to this location is an expanded tequila bar and a substantial outdoor patio with large garage door front windows that access the open-air space offering 48 seats for alfresco dining.”
“Team Cordero is thrilled to expand our footprint in Northern Virginia with the grand opening of Taco Rock 2,” Mike Cordero said in the press release. “Taco Rock is an epicurean treat that gives a nod to street food but includes a gourmet twist with our signature Blue Rock tacos. We anticipate the Alexandria community will greatly welcome our concept.”
The restaurant will mostly match the Arlington location, with tacos served on homemade blue corn tortillas. Listed offerings include breakfast tacos and vegetarian tacos. The restaurant also features a tequila bar and imported Mexican beers, along with crispy stuffed churros and ice cream tacos.
