Tacos Mariachi, the beloved West Dallas taqueria made famous by Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives officially threw open the doors to its second location on Greenville Avenue earlier today.

The spot opened on Lowest Greenville on the same block as Gung Ho and HG Sply Co. Owner Jesus Carmona told GuideLive that lines are out the door at his original spot in West Dallas whenever a re-run of the show airs. No word yet whether opening weekend drew lines down Greenville Avenue for Carmona’s “funky tacos” filled with grilled marinated octopus, grilled salmon, and avocado mousse or the more traditional varieties filled with steak, chicken, and beef tongue. The full menu of favorites including mole fries, elotes, and house-made tres leches cakes also purportedly made the trek to East Dallas.

This stretch of Greenville Avenue is notoriously tough for restaurants, with a great deal of turnover in recent years. While stalwarts like HG Sply and Rapscallion are going strong, others have succumbed to the changing neighborhood and skyrocketing rent, including Daddy Jacks, which was replaced by Louie King BBQ, the Crown & Harp which was replaced by Leela’s Wine Bar downstairs and ABV Establishment upstairs, and Remedy which was replaced by Gung Ho, along with the Blind Butcher and BBBop Seoul Kitchen to name a few. Nora will also notably leave Lowest Greenville for Bishop Arts at the end of the year.
