Is Tacos el Charro closed?

Tacos el Charro has been closed for the last few weeks, but there isn't a sign/note in the window to indicate what is going on. Anyone have any ideas? Getting desperate for my tacos al pastor fix...

  1. I wonder if they're maybe on an extended winter holiday. I believe the owners are approaching retirement age, have taken these kind of hiatuses before.

      The owners had tried to sell it more than 5 years ago. I'm surprised it held on so long. I remember going in to try it before it closed (and then several time later after it didn't).

    2. It's dead, Jim.

      Just called. The phone company says the phone number's been disconnected.


      1. I walked by yesterday, and though the gate was pulled i could see the door and windows were open-- I saw people moving, and called out for and spoke with Ada (the kindly woman who would always wait on our table and encourage me to try and practice my very poor spanish with her). Anyway long story short she says they are currently doing a deep clean and will reopen next week..... tacos lengua live on in Hyde Square!
