Taco Taco restaurant opens at former Honest Tom’s location near 44th and Spruce

September 3, 2019

A new Mexican restaurant, Taco Taco, quietly opened last month in the former Honest Tom’s Plant Based Taco Shop location at 261 S. 44th Street. According to a recent report, Honest Tom’s longtime kitchen staff members – Alvaro, Maria and Eli – took over the space after former owner Tom McCusker left at the end of July to start a new business, Fruitadelphia.

The new restaurant is no longer vegan, although it still features some vegan items, like BIFF (a walnut-based “meat”) tacos and burritos. The new owners brought back the old menu, including breakfast on the weekends, which Honest Tom’s used to serve before it went all-vegan in the summer of 2018.

Taco Taco is open Monday – Friday 11 a.m.-9 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays 10 a.m.-9 p.m.

    Too bad that the vegan approach didn’t work out. Mostly folks in West Phil are pretty progressive, but in this he was a bit ahead of the curve in his commitment not to eat or sell the flesh of other beings. Glad to see that he is exploring a new option with Fruitadelphia. Lots of respect for what he has done and is committed to doing.
