Velvet Taco Opens First Restaurant in Atlanta

by Katie Lee

Atlanta — On September 9, 2019, Velvet Taco opened its first Atlanta restaurant in Buckhead. The 2,500-square-foot establishment is situated at 77 W. Paces Ferry Rd. within a Whole Foods Market-anchored shopping center.

The late-night joint (most locations stay open until 2 a.m.) offers a variety of chicken, beef, pork, fish and vegetarian tacos as well as brunch options.

Velvet Taco expects to open a second Atlanta location next year at the Interlock development in West Midtown, according to local media. Based in Dallas, the brand also operates restaurants in Austin, Chicago and Houston.

Velvet Taco is a one-of-a-kind taco concept serving premium food in a unique and funky fast-casual setting. Founded on the idea that tacos don’t have to be associated with Tex-Mex cuisine and can be made with the same care and quality ingredients as fine dining, Velvet Taco is where “anything goes meets the art of the possible.” Velvet Taco makes its own tortillas, slow roasts its own chicken and corn and makes everything from scratch.
