It looks like Taco Joint, known for its beloved breakfast tacos and chalupas, will open another DFW outpost.

A permit application filed by owners Corey McCauley and Jeffrey Kowitz with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission indicates that Taco Joint will open its newest location in a Lake Highlands strip mall at 9850 Walnut Hill Lane. The new location joins four Taco Joints currently open in Dallas — the original, which debuted in 2008 on Peak Street in East Dallas, and restaurants in Richardson, Lakewood, and Preston Center.

For those who are unfamiliar with the fare on offer at Taco Joint, think quick-service tacos served all day long. Breakfast plates like migas and “early bird enchiladas” are also on offer, along with chalupas, tortilla soup, salads, and burritos at lunch. The new location has filed for a liquor license, which means that boozy drinks will be on offer to wash down all those tacos.

Eater has reached out to Taco Joint for more details on when it will open in Lake Highlands. Stay tuned for an update.
