Residents who live or work in the Eastlake/Horizon City area will soon have a locally owned restaurant in which to celebrate future Taco Tuesdays.
Tacotote, known for its variety of made-from-scratch tacos, tortillas and salsas, has begun construction on its seventh and newest El Paso-area location on Eastlake Boulevard.
El Taco Tote originated in Ciudad Juarez in the late 1980s and expanded to El Paso in 1996 with its first location in N. Mesa near the University of Texas at El Paso.
(That location closed permanently in 2020 after 24 years. I heard it had to do with the lease expiring.)
As its popularity grew, so did the number of restaurants. Now called Tacotote, it currently has six city locations and restaurants in San Antonio and Laredo Texas, Phoenix and Tucson Arizona, Albuquerque New Mexico, and Mexico, including Juarez.
Where on Eastlake and when will it open?
The restaurant will be located at 12221 Eastlake in the Eastlake Commons outdoor mall. Eastlake Commons is across the street from Eastlake Marketplace and near the Amazon fulfillment center.
The family-owned company filed with the state in January 2022 for what was described in the paperwork as a “new TacoTote location with drive-thru,” but has only recently begun shifting dirt on the planned project. two million dollars.
They haven’t set an opening date yet, but they hope to be grilling and salsa-making later this year.
