Chef Mike Cordero will open a third location of its fast-casual Taco Rock taqueria and tequila bar concept at Birch & Board shopping center this fall. The Falls Church Taco Rock will span 2,815 square feet and be fashioned similar to the existing restaurants in Rosslyn and Alexandria in Virginia.
This new Birch and Broad location of Taco Rock is designed to be expansive. It will feature 25 tables and 35 barstools around the centerpiece tequila bar. An outdoor area will feature heat lamps and large garage door front windows.
True to its rock-centric nature. a giant screen showcase will feature old school mixed videos. The renovated shopping center, anchored by a Giant Food and CVS Pharmacy, will be the new home of DC’s own taco shop with a Rock vibe.
Specialty tequila cocktails and imported Mexican beers help complement Taco Rock’s tasty tacos. Crispy stuffed churros, plus an assortment of cream fillings and gourmet ice cream tacos help delivery a sweet, memorable finish to any visit.
Taco Rock Happy Hours and Taco Tuesdays will carry over to the Falls Church location.
Yvette Irene, who has established a reputation in New York City and Washington, DC as premier designer, helped create the ambiance at the new restaurant.
This is how Taco Rock’s team described Irene’s work, ““She will refurbish the space into a hip, lively restaurant with a cool vibe that pays homage to colorful rock-and-roll culture. While maintaining a street taco theme, the new restaurant will present a rustic contemporary palette featuring reclaimed wood, an aged-quilted copper bar face, pitted tiles, industrial chandeliers and mixed metals showcasing graffiti street art.”
“Team Cordero is excited to expand Taco Rock’s footprint in Northern Virginia with the opening of our largest and third location,” said Cordero. “The newly renovated Birch & Broad shopping plaza makes a perfect fit for our establishment and we anticipate the Falls Church community will welcome our concept.”
Cordero worked with top-performer Chris Saa from Divaris Real Estate Inc. to secure the long-term lease agreement with landlord Federal Realty. Carlos Construction LLC will conduct the buildout, and the restaurant should open this October.
