As another 100-degree day starts to drive people crazy, others in Grand Prairie are quite literally driving themselves "loco." That is to say, Mexican food chain Go Loco is hosting its grand opening today at its new location off TX 360 (3051 Mayfield Road).
Serving street tacos, burritos, bowls and nachos, Go Loco is an interesting collaboration between the folks behind Dallas's Blue Mesa Grill and major oil distributor Victron Energy, Inc. Victron, which handles three-hundred million gallons of oil annually, also owns and operates the chain of Texas Best Smokehouse truckstop restaurants across the state.
So far opening day turnout has been pretty good, said Go Loco Grand Prairie Manager Julian Zorrilla. Describing the food as "fast but casual Mexican dining," Zorrilla says the main draw that brings people in is not the tacos—rather, "burritos are the main killer."
Go Loco first hit DFW back in April when it opened off Highway 67 in Alvarado (that is, if you count Alvarado as part of DFW). Fort Worth's dining guy Bud Kennedy went Loco today, saying the chain is "Blue Mesa's version of Chipotle" with some "nice touches," including a $1.99 cup of Chimayo roast corn, queso fresco and spicy Valentina sauce.
