Las Vegas-Based Tacotarian Brings Vegan Mexican Food To San Diego's North Park

July 10, 2022

Founded in Las Vegas, Tacotarian will launch the 5th location of its plant-based Mexican restaurant this week in San Diego's North Park.

Founded by couples Dan & Regina Simmons and Carlos & Kristen Corral after a trip to Regina’s hometown of Mexico City, Tacotarian is a vegan Mexican street food restaurant that first opened in Las Vegas in 2018. In 2021, Vice President Kamala Harris made headlines when she chose to stop at Tacotarian while visiting Las Vegas. Other notable celebrity sightings at the plant-based eatery include Chelsea Handler, Brad Garrett, Mayor Garcetti and Rami Jaffee, to name a few. The company now has four locations with the newest opening this week in America's Finest City.

Tacotarian will soft open its newest restaurant on Monday, July 11, in San Diego's North Park community, taking over the space that last housed Chicago Not Dogs and The Modern Vegan before that. The San Diego location will look similar to other Tacotarians with their stand out black and white bar, teal and light wood accents and hanging plants. In addition to an entirely plant-based menu of appetizers, soups, salads, tacos, tortas, burritos, quesadillas, enchiladas, flautas, and desserts, the San Diego restaurant will also have a full liquor license with specialty cocktails, beer and wine.

Tacotarian is located at 4332 30th Street in San Diego's North Park. For more information, visit
