Tacos el Pata Restaurant Chain Arrives

By Karla Ortiz

You’ve probably seen the new building on the road to Celaya next to the Farmacias Guadalajara in the El Pípila roundabout with a giant sign that says Tacos el Pata.

A homegrown business born in Querétaro, Tacos el Pata is famous not only around here but throughout the Republic. After much demand, it is finally arriving in San Miguel de Allende.

Tacos el Pata started more than 30 years ago as street food sold from a cart in Colinas del Marqués in Querétaro. It made its mark by bringing customers their tacos straight to their cars. From there, they opened their first restaurant. With growing success, they eventually opened more restaurant branches around the state and expanded throughout the country. The company currently has 18 branches in Monterrey, Nuevo León, San Luis Potosi, Aguascalientes, León, Querétaro and Ciudad de México. They soon plan to open three more in Toluca, Saltillo, and soon in San Miguel de Allende.

Owners said the company saw growth potential here due to the arrival of many national and international tourists to San Miguel, and they also listened to customers in other branches who called on them to open here. Still putting on its finishing touches, the restaurant does not yet have a definite opening date, although the plan is for Easter Week. The San Miguel menu will be exactly the same as in its Querétaro branch.

They will make two types of trompo tacos (served with corn tortillas and a choice of toppings) available—tacos al pastor (made with shredded pork, pineapple and a sauce of chilies, orange juice and white vinegar) and one made with imported top sirlon meat. In addition to star dishes from their other branch, such as the cheese chicharrón (cheese sausage), they will also have the Choncho, made with 200 grams of meat of your choice, and the ¿Qué me notas?—a dish made al pastor-style with pork chop and cheese. They will also have a vegetarian alambre, a sort of cheese casserole made with pineapple, mushrooms, bell pepper, onion, and nopal (cactus).

Tacos El Pata offers a wide variety of meats in various cuts, everything from pastor-style pork to chicken, sausage, sirloin, and ribs. Pork chops are a bit of a specialty: get them either plain, marinated, or with bacon. For English speakers, they will also have menus in English.

They will be open every day of the week, 365 days a year, from noon onwards. Closing times vary from day to day, following a staggered schedule: Monday at 1am, Tuesday at 2pm, Wednesday at 3pm, Thursday at 4am, Friday and Saturday at 5am, and Sunday at 1pm.
