Finally! The long wait is over. Taco Tico is now officially open at 4833 Texas Blvd.  Now, it's going to be a matter of waiting in line for your food both inside and out in the drive-thru. But be patient because it will all be worth it! Texarkanians have been waiting for this day ever since it was announced on their Facebook page several months ago.

Monday of this week they had what they call a soft opening for VIP's so that their employees could get some on site training. However, nothing is going to prepare them for the onslaught of customers that will bombard them over the next few weeks. I had an opportunity to stop in on Monday to get a sample of the food and take a few pictures.

I had a loaded Sancho and enchiladas and YES, it tasted just like I remember. While I was waiting for my food to come out I had a chance to talk with a customer who seemed to be very pleased.

I talked briefly with owner Kim Gill as she was extremely busy training her employees to be ready on opening day. She and her husband Jerry have always loved Taco Tico and would always visit one when they went on vacation. After talking it over with her husband, they were able to secure a franchise and bring Taco Tico back to the Texarkana community. If you visit the restaurant in the coming months make sure to tell Kim, thank you!

Taco Tico is back! Like their slogan says, "It's all about the taste."

Are you ready for a taste?
