Locally owned TikiTaco plans to start your day with breakfast burritos and take you through late night with street tacos and more.
Owners Christina McIntosh and Tyler Herndon plan to open TikiTaco by mid-June at 1710 W. 39th St., former home of several food operations, including Smallcakes.
It will offer the 39th Street Taco (steak, pork, chicken or veggie for $1.50); The Daddy Bruce (after Tyler’s grandfather who owned a Blue Springs’ truck stop, 707, in the 1970s, where he also was the cook); a breakfast burrito with chorizo, egg, cheese and potato for $5; the Tommy Fish Tacos with Alaskan pollock for $2.75; and the KC Burrito with curly fries, meat, cheese, guacamole and sour cream for $6.
