Fort Worth’s WestBend area has been making some serious moves in the last couple years. The shopping center only a mile and half north of TCU got outposts of Ascension Coffee and HG Sply Co. in the last two years and also boasts one East Hampton Sandwich Co location. Soon, a new-to-Texas taco chain will add to the diverse selection of eats in the area.
Announced via release, Bartaco has officially announced a location in WestBend. The restaurant is known for its coast-inspired street food (i.e. tacos) in a healthy, outdoorsy setting. The restaurants have the “air of a rustic beach shack” and the menus are influenced by Mediterranean, Asian, and other world flavors. The first Bartaco location opened in Port Chester, New York in 2011, and has since expanded to Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
Batarco will take a prime spot right along the Trinity River and will eventually be accessible via the Trinity River Trails currently in the works at WestBend. The addition of Batarco is just one step in the revitalization of the area — by the time it is completed, WestBend will be fully walkable and play host to several new restaurants and shops.
Stay tuned for an official opening date.
