La Yaquesita Tacos is moving in at the corner of Fourth Avenue & Sixth Street

Sonoran-style delights are comin' in hot

500 N. Fourth Ave. has seen a couple of changes in the last few years, and with each alteration comes a totally different concept.

Imagine getting a mighty whiff of delicious quesabirria while cruising around the Avenue, or perhaps being greeted by the heavenly aromatics of Sonoran tacos while attempting to parallel park your vehicle. That is what’s on the horizon for the corner of Fourth Avenue and Sixth Street.

The local food truck La Yaquesita Tacos is opening a new location in the space that most recently housed L Station Cafe & Bar.

One of the new features of the Fourth Avenue location is that it’ll be open throughout the day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. So, expect to find a lot of the familiar dishes like cabeza tacos, along with a few unique-to-the-location items, too.

I’m working on a Mexican pasta — maybe a chicken chipotle pasta,” said chef Miguel Rodriguez, owner of La Yaquesita. “Also, maybe a couple of soups a day and some gourmet dishes at night.”

Inside the restaurant, there will be about four tables for dine-in and a bar with additional seating, and then outside on the patio, you can expect to find 15 to 20 more tables.

The hours of operation are still in the works, but Rodriguez is thinking 7 a.m. – 8 p.m. on Monday – Wednesday, from 7 a.m. – midnight Thursday – Saturday.

The original location at 6530 S. Camino de Oeste, near Valencia, is remaining intact as the new restaurant on Fourth Avenue has plans of opening its doors sometime by the end of May 2022.

La Yaquesita Tacos’ new location will be located at 500 N. Fourth Ave. near Opas! Grill and Lindy’s. For more information and any updates on the official opening date, follow La Yaquesita Tacos on Facebook
