ST. LOUIS — If you like watching soccer with a side of tacos, this new bar will be for you.
The owner of Locoz Tacoz food truck is bringing his "100% authentic Mexican food" to a new soccer-themed bar in Tower Grove South.
“I am very excited," said Tyler Garcia, who started Locoz Tacoz in 2014. "I’m very grateful. It’s been seven years in the making.”
Locoz Tacoz will operate out of the kitchen at a soccer-themed bar that is in development by the owners of Amsterdam Tavern, Garcia said. The new bar will be located two doors down from Amsterdam Tavern.
"We’ll do street tacos, our loco fries, which are super popular," Garcia said. "We’ll also offer menu items you can’t do on a food truck."
Garcia said there are plans to build a beer garden in the new spot.
And since Saint Louis FC partnered with Locoz Tacos, Garcia said this combination of soccer and tacos is natural.
"We’re the official food truck of Saint Louis FC," Garcia said. "We’re at all their home games. The fans love us and we love them."
There's no official opening date of the soccer bar, but Garcia said he hopes to start serving customers before summer.
The food truck will still operate.
