The lot to become El Rey in 2009

Prince of Petworth noticed there is a liquor license application up on U Street, in the lot next to Dodge City, for a seasonal taco stand. Called El Rey, it will have a summer garden with a capacity 150 people. There used to a be a U-Haul rental center at this location. I’m doing a bit more research to see if I can find out who is behind this venture, but haven’t come up with anything as of yet.

Now, I’m a lover of tacos – but after a recent trip to San Francisco, I’m a bit skeptical. Yes, guys what they say is true – the tacos are so much better on the West coast. I hope this taco place will actually be good, instead of just building on a burgeoning trend.
