O'Fallon residents have mixed opinions about the current construction happening at 2998 Highway K. The building has been empty since the city's only Steak 'n Shake permanently shut down in 2020 after narrowly avoiding bankruptcy. Several residents voiced concerns that O'Fallon would end up with another bank or vape shop, but these fears were unfounded. The city is getting a chain restaurant known as Tacos 4 Life instead.

Multiple residents of St. Charles County stated they're upset that yet another chain restaurant is joining the area. However, the majority of residents News Break connected with have said they're looking forward to the arrival of Tacos 4 Life in O'Fallon. The restaurant has a tentative opening date of fall 2021, just in time for parents to grab dinner on the way to football practice or an event at the Renaud.

So, what can you expect from Tacos 4 Life?

Tacos 4 Life is a Tex-Mex restaurant known for its craft tacos. Reviewers say cilantro plays a starring role in many dishes, so keep that in mind before you order. The menu varies by location, but here are some items you may find when this popular chain arrives in O'Fallon, Missouri:

  • Fried chicken tacos
  • Classic beef tacos

What makes Tacos 4 Life different than other Tex-Mex chains?

Tacos 4 Life is known for its tasty tacos and refreshing watermelon strawberry punch, but the chain's generosity is what sets it apart from other Tex-Mex restaurants. Tacos 4 Life has partnered with Feed My Starving Child (FMSC), an organization that helps fight hunger around the world.

The restaurant contributes $0.24 from the purchase of each qualifying menu item, including tacos and quesadillas. This money helps FMSC buy meals for kids in need. To date, Tacos 4 Life has donated enough funds to purchase more than 2.2 million meals via FMSC.
