With Another Branch on Mockingbird, Fuzzy's Taco Shop is the New Starbucks

fuzzy logo.jpg
We're putting it out there: Fuzzy's is the New Starbucks. The Fort Worth-based juggernaut is set to open its 32nd store in four states in late summer -- in The Shops at Mockingbird at Mockingbird Lane and Lemmon Avenue. That would make it the second location on Mockingbird. An outpost opened on Abrams and Mockingbird in 2010. That's practically down the street, but not as bad as the two Starbucks that used be in New York's Astor Place.

Cypress Equities, the managers of The Shops at Mockingbird, have framed the new Fuzzy's as a vehicle for further growth. Its presence will translate to a diverse customer base attracted by similarly diverse tenants. Fuzzy's and Family Dollar, together at last!

It's only a matter of time before Fuzzy's offers the taco equivalent of the Trenta.

I can't speak for all the locations but the one in Denton is great - cheap food that tastes pretty good to me, and good service, which is more than I can say for a lot of over-hyped places.

Their sandwiches, potatoes and nachos are better than their tacos in my opinion. I think their product is okay. They definitely have a good concept, t-shirts, etc. and that's have the battle when you are franchising.

I totally agree, Big Country. Their tortilla soup is tasty, and another huge selling point for me is that they serve breakfast/brunch all day, every day.

I've only had had their tacos once, and they were meh.

But the queso, pork nachos, soup, salads, tortas (sandwiches), and egg dishes are all delicious. Their service at the Mockingbird/Abrams location is friendly and efficient.

It should be renamed " Fuzzy's tacos for gringos who are too afraid to go to west dallas and get real tacos ". This must be an on the border venture! Puro muguero!

Try rusty taco on University & Greenville; not bad for north of el rio trinidad, Mexicans in the back, gringos in the front! Order the pork, like a real mexican would!

I ate at one for the first time Friday. The one on highway 10 in Euless was great. Had the pork soft tacos. Will be going there again!

Where you from, Jose? Abrams and Lemmon are not down the street from each other. Get a Mapsco, dude.

the only place worse than fuzzy's is rusty cardboard taco. both places owe the word "taco" an apology.

Just wondering, what would the "the taco equivalent of the Trenta" BE?

Mockingbird/Lemmon and Mockingbird/Abrams are practically down the street? Really?

I luckily became involved when only 8 stores were open and operating. Couple months later, 70 regions/franchises were sold. As far out as New Mexico, as East as Louisiana and Arkansas and as far north as Wisconsin. Couple months after that, 90 regions/franchises sold. I helped open two and know nothing more but they are not going to slow down. Cheap food/alcohol, college towns, great for the family, etc. etc. The brain behind the original is the brain behind Yucatan Taco Stand and other restaurants in and around FTW. Some of the other upper-level management were involved in all Texas or North Texas operations of Hooter's, Jamba Juice, Jack-in-the-Box, and Double Dave's franchises. These guys are smart, have money and know what they are doing. Just hope that the rapid growth does not diminish the product and no matter how many people think the food sucks, triple that amount think it's good.

It could be that they didn't participate in "Taco Week" simply because they don't agree that the United Way needs more funds. A lot of funders will not give to non-profits if they are beneficiaries of United Way.

not a fan of fuzzy's tacos but i gotta hand it to them on opening stores in locations that others would not. they opened one on 75 in plano where the only competition is crap like Spaghetti Warehouse, so if you're in that neighborhood, you end up at fuzzy's even if you don't love their food

Buhhh Fuzzy's is nasty. How can this place be thriving in a town with so many legit taco shops?

Feeling safe when you eat is one reason.

I wish the new locations would keep the same hours as the original. Open until 3 AM on Fridays and Saturdays. Who wants late nite tacos???

Have you never been to a Jack In The Box?

Does anyone else agree that their food is beyond bland? It's like I'm eating air. Maybe that's why their growing so rapidly, low cost on food. Who knows. I'm tired of seeing them everywhere and miss going to the location in Lewisville off Main before anyone knew of them. The food was consistently amazing there.

Queso is great but the tacos are so so at best, not much meat.

Too bad they're not any good. I wish Torchy's Tacos could be the new Starbucks instead. I'm not too far away from Preston/Forrest, but it'd be nice to have one up in Allen/North Plano.
