Boasting that it’s “still the same since 1972,” the quick-service chain maintains its positioning of freshness, serving classic Mexican dishes such as tacos and burritos, typically for under $3. Taco Casa spent much of the last year growing its brand to nearly 80 units to date, all in Texas. And growth doesn’t look to be slowing; it’s got three more sites set to open in The Lone Star State in the near future.
