FYI for Taqueria Moroleon Fans

I was there in today with my wife for dinner and as I was paying a saw a flyer saying they were moving. I asked the cashier and she confirmed it. They are moving to Avondale on the left side of route 41 right before you hit the PA/DE state line. I believe she said they were taking the place at the Il Giardino location but I could be wrong. She said they should be moved by the end of August. This caught me by surprise so I thought I'd let people know on here since it is a popular place.

  1. That is correct about the location. I hope that they can make it there. That site has been deadly to other restaurants.

      Wow...that's great news (well for me) in terms of travel time. I think they may actually do more business seeing all of the truck traffic on Rt. 41 (unless they stop at one of the El Sombreros up the road). The only competition at the new location is Palacia Maya a mile or so away. Think food worse than Taco Bell at Hockessin prices and you get the picture.

        Glad to hear that I'm not the only one who thinks Palacio Maya is disgusting. It has been pitched as Mexican food the way Mexicans do it; as opposed to the TexMex of Taco Belch.

        Rt 41 is turning into the restaurant nexus for me. Okura, Fat Guy's and now Moroleon!!

            Wings and chicken tenders are usually very good. Lots of interesting sauces/glazes. Burgers are OK. Cheese fries and quesadillas are OK too.

            My wife likes the chicken salad (which is nice for chicken salad, but how good can chicken salad be?). Mozzarella sticks are not very good, which surprised me. How can they screw this up?

            Re the other places in downtown Hockessin...
            Kims- good breakfast/lunch joint Owner operated!
            6 Paupers- Slow service. Heavy hand with spices. Odd dishes...goat cheese nachos???
            Back Burner- Not quite "Fine Dining" but not bad at all. The crowd and vibe is much older ie lots of grandparents, but the food isn't geriatric.

    2. Well, the drive will be a bit longer for me, but it'll still be worth it. I wonder if that place comes with a liquor license.

      1. has it moved yet? please let me know when, don't want to drive to the wrong place to get my fix

        1. It turns out that Taqueria Moroleon's new location is the former Il Giardino location. They're hoping to be moved by the end of August. Sad to say, that location DOES have a liquor license, so we may be counting down to the end of BYO at Taqueria. :-(
