Popular Taco Restaurant to close after 14 years of business
After 14 years of dishing out delectable tacos and establishing themselves as a beloved dining destination in Fort Worth, Taco Heads, the brainchild of Sarah Castillo, will be ceasing operations within the coming months. The original Taco Heads location, nestled at 1812 Montgomery Street near Dickies Arena, will bid farewell to its patrons on February 29. The Stockyards location, situated at 2349 N. Main Street, will follow suit, closing its doors on December 31.
Castillo revealed that the Taco Heads restaurants have been acquired by Chef Tim Love’s esteemed restaurant group. This transition marks the culmination of Castillo’s culinary journey, which began in 2010 when a dream inspired her to embark on a food truck adventure.
Initially operating late into the night behind bars in Fort Worth’s vibrant West 7th district, the Taco Heads food truck swiftly captured the hearts of locals. In 2016, Castillo transformed a former Tex-Mex restaurant and resale store on Montgomery Street into a brick-and-mortar establishment, marking a pivotal moment in Taco Heads’ evolution. The Stockyards location followed suit in 2020, further expanding the brand’s reach.
With Love’s restaurant group assuming ownership, Taco Heads will be joining an impressive portfolio that includes Stockyards culinary gems such as Ático, Caterina’s, La Lotería, Lonesome Dove Western Bistro, the Love Shack, Paloma Suerte, Tannahill’s Tavern, and the White Elephant Saloon.
While the closure of Taco Heads marks the end of an era, it also paves the way for new beginnings. Castillo, a pioneer in Fort Worth’s culinary landscape, will undoubtedly continue to grace the city with her passion for food and entrepreneurship.
