Inside Scoop is reporting that Marina taco shop Tacolicious, along with a new tequila bar, is coming to Valencia @19th:
Assuming all goes to plan, owner Joe Hargrave is hoping for a late spring/early summer debut in the Mission. The second Tacolicious location will mirror the original in many ways, from the lively vibe to the farm-fresh purveyors to most of the menu itself
Executive chef Telmo Faria, who will oversee both locations, says that they’ll add a bicycle delivery service, ranging from 30th to 15th and Folsom to Dolores Park, or thereabouts. And just for laughs, the Marina Girl salad will be replaced by the Skinny Jeans salad.
It's going to be really interesting to see how this place does amongst countless real taquerias. It makes sense that Tacolicious works on Chestnut because the Marina doesn't have any good Mexican food, but Valencia? You'd think people wouldn't even bother.
Regardless of whether people will eat here or not, I'm most interested to see if
the HipNimbys Chicken John FREAKS THE FUCK OUT that a Marina-based chain is invading Valencia Street. After all, this is pretty much the 1967 Arab-Israeli War all over again.
