RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Soul Taco is opening a much larger location in Shockoe Slip.

The restaurant’s first location is located on 2nd St. in Richmond’s Jackson Ward neighboorhood and has been open since October 2018.

Soul Taco blends traditional Latin American Flavors and Southern food to create unique tacos. They use fresh and vibrant ingredients used in California-style cooking to create their dishes.

On their menu, customers can find pork chop tacos, Mississippi pot roast taquitos, and even cornmeal crusted catfish tacos.

Soul Taco announced via Instagram that they signed a new lease Thursday, April 11 for a location in Shockoe Slip. 

“We’re super excited, very motivated, and a little nervous but we can’t wait to share this process,” wrote Soul Taco. “And then of course share some delicious food with even more of the amazing people in Richmond.”

The restaurant’s owners, Ari Augenbaum, Nar Hovnanian, and William “Trey” Owens, told 8News what customers can expect at their new location.

“Expect more of the same innovative and delicious foods, fresh ingredients, and friendly service,” the owners said.

The size of this new location will allow them more space for a bar program with fresh and forward-thinking cocktail options, the owners added.

The second location will be opening in the next few months.
