A new taco spot debuts this summer in Westside. Street Taco will open at 1523 Howell Mill Road in the Berkeley Park neighborhood just south of I-75. Owner Jason Sherman fell in love with the food and the streets of Mexico City and wants to bring that vibe to Atlanta.
Street Taco will serve a variety of tacos and Mexican street fare. Lunch will hover just under the $10 mark and is counter serve only. During dinner, the restaurant transitions to full service with wait staff.
A full bar, breakfast, and brunch are also planned.
Street Taco will include a covered patio as well as an open air patio for lounging and dog-friendly dining on the grass lot next door.
“I wanted to bring the pride of ownership, great flavors, and comfort that I felt while eating on these magical streets in Mexico to Atlanta,” Shermans says in a prepared statement. “Howell Mill in the bustling Berkeley Park neighborhood seemed like a natural place to do this.”
Residents of Berkeley Park, sandwiched between Northside Drive and Howell Mill, are excited to finally have a walkable, local restaurant opening in the neighborhood. This stretch of Howell Mill Road from Chattahoochee Avenue to Huff Road is a restaurant dead zone filled with body shops and other car-related retail. Flip Burger, Urban Tree Cidery, and Monday Night Brewing on Trabert Avenue are also located in the neighborhood.
Sherman says residents have been “extremely” invested in the restaurant since he began work on the property earlier this year. He wants Street Taco to become a walkable, “neighborhood gem” for Berkeley Park and nearby Underwood Hills.
The restaurant will offer valet parking as well as a parking lot behind the restaurant.
“Our goal is to create a relaxing environment that will engrain itself into the neighborhood and become a place for everyone,” says Sherman. “Like eating on a street corner in Mexico City: great flavors, terrific drinks, and warm inviting service; an open kitchen will let guests see and sense everything.”
Street Taco plans to open in August or early September.
