Brunchpocalypse Is Over

Folks, it is with a heavy heart that I bring you this news.  We are going to be closed this coming Sunday for Father’s Day (so our staff can enjoy time with their families), and after further review of our Brunchpocalypse I have decided to put a temporary halt to further brunching at Tacopocalypse.  We will be closed on Sundays from this day forward as I work to update both our menu and the restaurant itself.

As stated before, this is only temporary and for those of you who will be missing Sundays, we will be announcing something special soon, a thing that has been in the works for many years, a thing called NIGHT BRUNCH.

That’s Right, NIGHT BRUNCH

Thank you for the 6 years of Brunchpocalypse good times, when it returns it will be on a whole different level!

BOTW: Johnny Hash

The Johnny Hash is a Vegan burrito consisting of our house made Seitan, Poblanos, Mushrooms, onions, tots, our new Vegan Breakfast Gravy, Vegan Queso, and Hot Sauce, all wrapped up and served uh…wrap style…

Burrito Of The Week: PHORRITOPOCALYPSE

This week we are bringing back one of our little known classics for the BOW, the Phorrito. You can get either a meaty version stuffed with Ginger Brisket, tender Rice Noodles, Sprouts, and Thai Chermoula, served “wrap style,” and  sided with a cup of Pho Broth, OR a Vegan version starring Ginger Seitan.  All of this for the usual 8 bones, served open to close from May 16 to the 20th!

Giving Thanks

wpid-IMG_20110507_084113.jpeg

Today, on this “Tacosgiving Eve,” I give thanks for all of you who have made this little taco thing into what it is today. A few years back it all started as a “one off” taco night at the Cumming Tap with with Vegan Chorizo, Braised Pork, curtido, red and green salsa, pickled jalapeños, and hand pressed corn tortillas, and just enough people showed up to try it out that we decided to do it again. And again. We have gone from very humble beginnings to the Downtown Farmers Market, Des Moines, then to the Historic East Village as a brick and mortar restaurant. We moved from Des Moines St to our current location on East 5th, then made it on to Food Network’s “Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives” for some pretty regular rotation, in addition to some other high profile awards and publications. None of this would be possible if it wasn’t for all of you who have shown up and supported through the years, everyone who took a turn at slinging tacos, and especially all of you who have believed in and stuck by me throughout the ups and downs over the years. It’s been a tough journey, but Tacopocalypse is proof that you can go far with almost nothing, it just takes an idea, timing, dedication, skill, great friends, and a little luck. 

Thank you, everyone. Have a safe holiday, and remind those around you that they are important.

Sam & the Masa Amigos
