Frida’s Taqueria moving to new Overland Park spot

Just two-and-a-half years after opening in Overland Park, Frida’s Taqueria is relocating.

The locally-owned fast-casual concept closed Friday in The Fountains, 6537 W. 119th St. It plans to reopen by mid-December at 6705 W. 119th St. in La Paloma Plaza, just west of the Fountains.

Ivan Marquez, founder and owner of Frida’s Taqueria, said he will nearly double his space in the new location and it offers more visibility.

“You can get in and get out in no time,” he said. “We’ll also offer some new menu items.”

Frida’s Taqueria opened in spring 2012 with such menu items as soft shell tacos, tamales, and flautas.

Marquez also owns a full-service Overland Park restaurant, Frida’s Contemporary Mexican Cuisine at 7200 W. 121st St.
