¡Salud! Taqueria To Open National City Outpost

April 3, 2018

Barrio Logan's ¡Salud! Taqueria, which appears on tonight's San Diego-centric episode of Travel Channel's The Zimmern List with Andrew Zimmern, will open an outpost in the standalone building last occupied by Pollo Feliz in National City. This is in addition to another branch currently being constructed at the former Kristy's MVP space in the Midway District of Point Loma.

Ernest Beccerra's San Diego Taco Company began as a one-man catering cart before blossoming into the first brick-and-mortar location of Salud in 2015. Since its debut, Salud has been packing the house in Barrio Logan with a menu of unique tacos, Mexican street food, handcrafted drinks and local craft beers. In addition to Salud & San Diego Taco Catering, Beccerra now has more than a dozen taco carts, 50 employees, and a beer and wine catering company named Pisto. Beccerra is also in the process of expanding Salud's original Barrio Logan location by 2,000 square-feet, calling the expanded space the "La Bamba Room" and offering a larger food menu, full bar, and weekend brunch. Salud's is also in the process of renovating the 5,000 square-foot indoor/outdoor space at 3225 Midway Drive that housed Kristy's MVP for nearly 15 years to transform it into a taco mecca. Both the Midway location and the renewed Barrio flagship branch are expected to be completed by this Fall.

The National City location will offer seating for 40 and an expanded menu with the addition of a variety of burritos. The eatery will also offer beer and wine at some point. Salud National City is expected to open by late April/early May.
