Velvet Taco, the unmatched taco restaurant, will begin wowing guests with its globetrotting, savory tacos upon opening its first College Station location at 1099 University Drive #111 on August 30 in Century Square, the 60-acre mixed-use destination adjacent to Texas A&M University developed by Houston-based Midway.
Velvet Taco has a passion for seeing food as an art form leading it to craft over twenty diversified taco varieties on its venturesome menu, accompanied by innovative side dishes and a decadent red velvet cake, all using in-house preparation methods. The result is an overload of international creativity obvious in each taco, such as the popular Spicy Tikka Chicken, Slow-Roasted Angus Brisket, and Mexi-Cali Shrimp tacos.
“We are excited and honored to bring Velvet Taco to College Station where the community knows good tacos,” said Velvet Taco CEO Clay Dover. “Guests visiting us at our Century Square restaurant can expect electric energic vibes, awesome service, and we here are all about the tacos. We are serving up 20+ adventurous taco combinations – including our Weekly Taco Feature with a new taco rolled out every week.”
Home of the unconventional taco lineup, Velvet Taco at Century Square will feature bright and rustic furnishings with indoor seating for 46 and a covered patio for 52. The lively, electric space will showcase the restaurant’s staple Marie Antoinette eating red velvet cake painting and one-of-a-kind, hand-painted murals. Guests who visit the College Station location, within the dynamic and walkable community center, can take advantage of the walk-up pickup window for orders placed in advance through the Velvet Taco app or website. Once open, Velvet Taco will bring an incomparable culinary experience to Century Square’s vivacious, invigorating space.
