A new late-night taco spot is coming to South End. But Velvet Taco isn’t new to Charlotte by any means. The taco spot has had a Park Road location open for a while now. They’ve also got a spot in Optimist Hall located close to NoDa.
Finally, the Charlotte Observer says this yummy new location will open its doors and begin serving this coming Monday, May 30th.
Their new location at 2170 Hawkins St. will be one of the chain’s largest locations at 3,527 square feet. That doesn’t even include the outdoor patio which measures an additional 689 square feet.
If you’ve never been to a Velvet Taco, like me, you can expect to see over 2o different kinds of tacos! And the collect part to me is that the different tacos reflect inspiration from all kinds of global cuisine. The Charlotte Observer says to look out for some unique ingredients to try on your next Velvet Taco taco. These include basil leaves, grilled salmon, Kobe beef, fried paneer, and crispy pepper jack corn grits.
The taco spot also serves margaritas, red velvet cake (duh!), and elote corn, which I personally can’t wait to try.
The store lists its hours as:
- Sunday – Wednesday: 11 a.m.-11 p.m
- Thursday: 11 a.m.-midnight
- Friday – Saturday: 11 a.m.-2 a.m.
What are you most excited to try?
