Unveiling a fresh and unique design, San Antonio-based Taco Cabana will celebrate the opening of its newest restaurant at 127 Yale Street in Houston, Texas, on August 27, 2012. The new location will feature a more dynamic and inviting atmosphere to enhance the overall guest experience while celebrating the contemporary flavors of Mexico.

Also on Tuesday, Aug. 21, the chain will celebrate National Flan Day by offering a FREE Flan at all participating Taco Cabana locations. The delicious new dessert is a chilled light Mexican custard drizzled with a rich caramel sauce.


Taco Cabana is always looking for ways to add more fun and flavor to every person's day. And what's more fun than giving away our newest dessert flavor to our guests? 

It's FREE Flan! No purchase necessary. Limit one per person.


Tuesday, August 21, 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.




At its new location to open in Houston, decorative metal "estrella" lights hang from the ceiling, while papel picado (iconic cut paper flags symbolizing a Mexican celebration) accents fashioned from laser-cut metal add a festive flair to the mix. String lights break the plane of the building, extending from outside on the patio into the dining room, bringing the patio experience indoors.

Striking street-life photos from the heart of Mexico line the walls, echoing Taco Cabana's focus on bringing authentic, contemporary Mexican cuisine to its guests. Texas-based photographer Rick Hunter sought to capture images contrary to the common American perception of Mexico, instead opting to capture everyday glimpses of true Mexican culture.

"We sent Rick deep into Mexico to capture the true essence of the country's culture for our restaurants," said Todd Coerver, chief brand officer at Taco Cabana. "Our intent is to accurately reflect the flavors of Mexico in everything we do – from our restaurant design, to the photos that adorn our walls, to the music we play, to the fresh ingredients blended into our made-from-scratch recipes."

With more than 156 restaurants in 3 states, Taco Cabana continues to redefine the Mexican fast-casual dining experience through ongoing menu and service enhancements.
