Those looking for the new restaurant in The Factory to open won’t have to wait much longer. Mojo’s Tacos opened for lunch on Thursday from 11 – 2 and you can stop by for lunch on Friday from 11 a – 2 p.
The restaurant will close for the weekend as they take their food truck to Main Street Festival, however, the soft opening begins on Tuesday, May 1- Friday, May 4 with hours of 11-2 and 4-8 each day. No grand opening date has been set at this time.
Mojo’s is the brainchild of some of the same restaurateurs behind other popular local concepts, including Burger Up Cool Springs, Franklin Juice Co., Juice Nashville, Honest Coffee Roasters and Five Daughters Bakery.
Co-owner Jason Smith said Mojo’s founders felt that Williamson County needed an upbeat, hip yet family-friendly eatery that offered innovative tacos at an affordable price.
“Mojo’s Taco Truck is the perfect way for us to jump into community life and give people a chance to try our one-of-a-kind tacos before we open the full restaurant this spring,” Smith said. “We’re offering a condensed version of the in-store menu, featuring our most popular items and a few weekly surprises that we want to test out.”
The menu in the restaurant reflects favorites from the food truck like a tempura-fried avocado taco and smoked brisket and adobo chicken tacos. You can order a combo meal of two tacos with chips and salsa for less than $10. A bar menu will be available featuring several margarita options including spicy pineapple, cucumber jalapeno and a Mojo’s house option along with mojito, sangria, beer, and wine. For families, kids meals are $5 with a choice of a cheese quesadilla, beef taco, or chicken tenders with a drink and free paleta. Side items include Mexican rice, street corn, black beans, pinto beans, and chipotle slaw.
