Velvet Taco is a temple to the liberated taco. It is a one-of-a-kind taco concept that serves premium food in a unique & 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 premium quality ingredients as fine dining, Velvet Taco is where “anything goes meets the art of the possible.” Velvet Taco uses the freshest ingredients to offer a wide selection of tacos that explore the edge of multi- regional and multi-cultural boundaries, liberating tacos to a new level of sophistication and taste. Velvet Taco currently operates restaurants in Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, Houston, and Chicago.
