Deep South Taco, the Mexican street food restaurant under construction on Ellicott Street, should be open by the end of October.
“We’ll probably do an official grand opening around the first of November, but my guess is that we’ll open in October,” said operator Richard Hamilton.
The space, at 291 Ellicott St., is still under construction. Hamilton plans a menu of authentic tacos on house-made corn tortillas and other Mexican favorites. Outside there will be space for about 135 people, with 75 inside, and room for 50 on a second-story deck, he said.
Among other features, the place will have a sound system dedicated to playing vinyl records.
Construction plans are being reviewed for a second planned Deep South Taco location, at 1707 Hertel Ave. "We're going to take the winter to build it," said Hamilton.
