COMING SOON — PALENQUE GRILL AND TACO PALENQUE

Plans call for the new 4,500-square-foot Taco Palenque quick-service restaurant and drive-thru to be located near Firestone off Staples Street, with the 8,920-square-foot casual dining Palenque Grill table service restaurant to be located adjacent to Dave & Buster’s.

Both are the creation of owner Juan Francisco “Pancho” Ochoa, the founder of the popular El Pollo Loco restaurant brand.

Construction on the two locations is set to begin immediately with the Palenque Grill, the first in Corpus Christi, slated to open in late November with completion of the fast-service Taco Palenque, the city’s second location, in early 2023.
