The Valley has some of the best Mexican food restaurants anywhere in the United States. With such a wide collection of restaurants, everyone has their personal favorite. To add to the crowded list of Mexican and South of the border-themed restaurants, a new location is set to join the ranks.
Tucked into the SanTan Village in Gilbert, Salt Tacos Y Tequila is moving in. Vacancies inside the Village are generally brief, and this proved to be of no exception. Salt Tacos Y Tequila is moving in roughly a month since the former resident closed up shop.
If the brand sounds familiar, it’s because this is the second restaurant to open up in the Valley. The original location can be found at the Westgate Entertainment District in Glendale.
As the name suggests, the restaurant specializes in what it calls “modern” Mexican food, which is a twist on traditional Mexican cuisine with ingredients not commonly found in Mexico. The restaurant also has a well-stocked tequila bar, with over 150 variations, so tequila lovers shouldn’t have an issue finding just the right spirit while visiting the restaurant.
The menu will include tacos, salads, as well as larger entrees, including an adobo chicken breast, a carne asada plate, the Salt’s Burger, as well as a ribeye. There are also a handful of specialized cocktails, such as the restaurant’s own house “classic”, pomegranate, salt punch, and Cadillac margaritas.
The restaurant is set to have a soft opening on Wednesday, November 17, with the official launch date set for Friday, November 19.
For anyone interested to save a few bucks while eating out, there are specialized days and menu items offered, which includes Taco Tuesday (tacos are available for $2-$3 each), plus discounted draft beers, such as a $2 16 ounce Dos XX, Kiltlifter, Hop Knot, Stella Artios, and several other beers, both craft and imported. There is also an event the restaurant calls Flight Club Monday, where taco flights are available (which include four varying tacos) for $10 to $14, as well as tequila flights, which range anywhere from $20 to $45 (with each made up of three one-ounce tequila pours).
If you are interested in visiting the newly minted restaurant, you’ll find it at 2206 East Williams Field Road, Suite 101. And, if you enjoy it but it isn’t close to home, a third Salt Tacos Y Tequila is planned for Phoenix in the coming months.
