Taco Joint in Plano and Rodeo Goat in Frisco

Tacos and burgers: These are two of our favorite things in Dallas-Fort Worth. Check out news from two new restaurants in Collin County:

The first Taco Joint in Collin County open Thursday, August 4, 2022 at the Heritage Creekside development on the southwest corner of Plano Parkway and Alma Road in Plano. It is near a Flying Fish and a Rodeo Goat, two other Dallas-owned businesses.

Taco Joint was born in Dallas in 2008 as a casual spot for breakfast tacos and queso. We said in 2021 that the company was about to have “its biggest year yet”, after humble beginnings where company executives joked that they started “on a shoestring budget. and a prayer”.

“We have always strived to be as one Cheers of the Tex-Mex industry,” Corey McCauley said in 2021. This effort appears to be working.

Taco Joint is at 1300 W. Plano Parkway, Plano.

Burger joint Rodeo Goat open in Frisco on August 9, 2022. The restaurant was born in Fort Worth in 2012 and has expanded to eight locations across North Texas. A new Rodeo Goat recently opened in East Dallas.

The Frisco restaurant moves into a former Macaroni Grill and is the largest Rodeo Goat to date, co-owner Shannon Wynne said.

Each menu offers a generous list of burgers, all available with the traditional beef patty or with chicken, turkey, vegan or impossible burgers. The Stonebriar Country Club, a special burger for Frisco, is sure to be popular. It’s a cheeseburger with shredded lettuce, tomato, onions, pickle, mayonnaise and mustard. More adventurous eaters might opt ​​for a burger like the Bad Hombre, which features maple bacon, caramelized onions, gouda cheese, mango pico, cream cheese, and habanero sauce.

Rodeo Goat is at 3111 Preston Road, Frisco.
