Downtown Dallas, Inc., announced this afternoon that Rusty Taco will take over the Main Street Garden Café space.

Robert Wilonsky reported on the space's need for a tenant over on Unfair Park back in February. Today's release announces Rusty's as the chosen vendor. The taco shack beat out a dozen other vendors vying for the space and will start stuffing tortillas some time in May

Rusty Fenton owns four other locations of his taco franchise in Texas and in Minnesota. "This location provides an established location in the heart of Downtown, and we are up for this new adventure," he said in the news release.

His Greenville Avenue location was one the test subjects on our brisket taco crawl. After sampling four other boutique taco joints in and around Dallas, Rusty's brisket taco was my favorite. Soon they'll be a little more accessible to my office, too.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
