Salud Tacos Scraps Plans For Midway Drive Point Loma Location

October 10, 2019

Barrio Logan born Salud Tacos has scrapped plans for a location at the 5,000 square foot standalone building that previously housed Kristy's MVP space in the Midway District of Point Loma.

Ernest Becerra's San Diego Taco Company began as a one-man catering cart before blossoming into the first brick-and-mortar location of Salud in the historic Barrio Logan neighborhood in 2015. Since its debut, Salud has been packing the house in The Barrio with a menu of unique tacos, Mexican street food, handcrafted drinks and local craft beers. In addition to Salud & San Diego Taco Catering, Becerra now has more than a dozen taco carts, over 50 employees, and a beer and wine catering company named Pisto, as well as additional Salud locations in National City and at Palace Station Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Becerra 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.

After receiving word that all construction at 3225 Midway Drive in Point Loma had stalled, we reached out to Salud to get an update on the project, and a representative from the company confirmed that the Midway outpost was no longer in the works. The company explained that the old Point Loma building needed too much infrastructure work to justify the cost of a build out.
