Stockyards rounds up Fort Worth’s second Taco Heads location
The local food favorite in Fort Worth, Taco Heads is on the way to the Stockyards with a second location.
Stream Realty Partners announced that its Fort Worth office has represented the property of KRS Realty Advisors on a 3,700 square foot lease with Taco Heads at 2341 N. Main St. in the heart of the Stockyards. This new lease is the second Fort Worth location for the popular taco restaurant. The Stockyards are currently being redeveloped. A new, important hub will shortly open, the Hotel Drover, which is due to open on March 22nd.
“The Stockyards have such a rich and historic history in Fort Worth, and KRS is excited about the future of the Historic District,” said Kerby Smith, founder and principal of KRS Realty Advisors. “We are committed to the success of the district and the redevelopment of 2341 N. Main Street and 111 NW 24th Street, and we believe that the substantial investment in the area will result in continued interest from Fort Worth consumers, tourists and residents . “
2341 N. Main Street is an adaptive recycling project that transformed a former office building into a mixed-use retail / restaurant and office facility. The 7,200-square-foot lot is located along with the adjacent building, 111 NW 24th Street, a 5,500-square-foot facility (the former Niles City’s Post Office, a national historic registry building, circa 1920). Both buildings got outside

“Taco Heads is a Fort Worth staple and an exciting addition to the Stockyards. The signing of a restaurant lease during COVID speaks volumes about the bullish nature of the stockyards and the strength of the Fort Worth economy, “said Cullen Donohue, senior associate in the Fort Worth office of Stream. “We anticipate that continued capital investments in the area will continue to develop the Stockyards as a target location in Fort Worth.”
Taco Heads’ signing of the lease at 2341 N. Main Street brings the building to full occupancy. The famous cowboy boot brand Tecovas occupies the 3,500 square meter room next door. 24th & Main has approximately 5,500 square feet in the adjacent building at 111 NW 24th Street. Taco Heads is scheduled to open its doors in spring 2021.
“We couldn’t be more excited about our new Fort Worth location,” said Sarah Castillo, founder and owner of Taco Heads. “It gives us the opportunity to gain additional awareness and further develop our brand throughout the region, and it offers our customers an authentic Taqueria experience in the heart and soul of our city.” Local architecture and interior design studio, 97w, has come up with an exciting interior / exterior design that enhances the bones of the existing building. The design contains characteristic Taco Heads elements and at the same time recognizes the special history and the lively future of the Stockyards. Service will be a fast-paced casual 2.0 concept with a full bar and to-go window. You can dine al fresco on the covered terrace.
