Jack Perkins' ocaTaco Should Open Wednesday

ocotaco1.jpg
The good people of the UT Southwestern campus are about to be slapped in the mouth with slow-cooked meat. Jack Perkins and part of his Maple and Motor team expect to open his new taco assembly-line concept, ocaTaco, sometime this week. (According to Facebook, it's looking like Wednesday.) And yes, ocaTaco is a palindrome. Racecar is also a palindrome. So is evil olive. You're welcome.

ocaTaco will offer hungry people refuge with homemade tortillas filled with their choice of pulled pork, shredded brisket, pulled chicken, or carne asada along with the three street taco staples: onions, cilantro, and lime.

Also starring in Perkins' little taco porno will be his cole slaw and barbecue sauce recipes, which will take the shredded brisket in a whole different direction. Jack will also feature Cory Anthony's Hometown Favorites fish taco recipe that won him a shit ton of cash on the Food Network.

Tacos will be $2.25 each, or for a mere $7.50, you can get three tacos of your choice as well as a drink from the ... wait for it ... Dublin soda fountain. Also: a huge parking lot and no valet. So that's a bonus.

$2.25 is at least twice what I pay for tacos at the little joint down the street, and they don't even have a dickhead running the place.  I'll pass.

I ate at Oco Taco today and the food was superior to any taco joint I have visited. The pricing is very fair as well with 3 tacos (anyway you like) and a 32 oz. drink for $7.25 I will eat there often~ the place is dailed in~

That's only gonna happen if the Mayans come back in their spaceships, in which case there won't be time to worry.

I'm no journalist, but if you're announcing a restaurant opening, it would seem the readers (and presumably, the restaurant) would appreciate mentioning the actual address.  "UT Southwestern campus" is not terribly specific.

For those of us not familiar with the UT Southwest campus, where will the entrance be?

I believe that it is in the tall Chase bldg behind the Salvation Army bldg. Property sits between Harry Hines and Forest Park. Entrance from either street.

Wondering if his attitude will follow to his new store or if that is reserved for his burgers

How's this?

More gringo tacos. Look, just because you put a Red Hot and Blue shredded pork BBQ plate inside of a tortilla, don't make it a taco. As for brisket? There's Pecan Lodge. It's closer to my house anyway, and the owners are nice to me.

Oh shit, almost forgot! Brisket tacos = Mia's. There.
