Only seven days before the start of the fall semester, Salsa Limón announced the closing of its campus location for good.
Salsa Limon’s “Universidad” home resided at 3501 S. University Drive. This strip has housed many campus favorites, including Doc’s Records, Dutch’s Hamburgers, The University Pub, Buffalo Brothers and Pizza Snob.
The Fort Worth taco joint announced its departure on its Facebook page.
TCU360 reported that there is a seafood restaurant taking its place on University Drive.
Salsa Limón will be relocating to its new location, Maggie, that is near Southside on the popular W. Magnolia Avenue.
“I think they’ll do great,” said David Shaw of Shaw’s Burgers and The Lazy Moose on Magnolia Ave. “There’s a great market over here. I’m confident that they’ll still have TCU students here. Exciting things are happening on this street.”
This isn’t the first relocation Salsa Limón has experienced in the past few years. In 2016, the “Museo” location (929 University Drive) closed as well. This was its second location where the goal was a “brick and mortar” feel. Rather than relocating and leaving the original building, Salsa Limón decided to relocate the building itself. The Museo building migrated 2.7 miles west and is now the “Distrito” location on White Settlement Road.
Salsa Limón has come a long way since its first location at La Gran Plaza in 2006 and its first food truck in 2010. It’s no secret that it is a favorite; its street-style tacos were voted best in the city by Fort Worth Magazine.
And for you die-hard Salsa Limón fans, we know there’s no place like home. Good thing your favorite tacos are always right around every corner.
