This month, the popular Miami based taco restaurant, Coyo Taco, opened a third location in the Royal Poinciana Plaza in West Palm Beach.
Known for its affinity towards locally- sourced and humanely-harvested ingredients, this authentic and award-winning Mexican hotspot plans to bring organic, freshly prepared cuisine to the heart of Palm Beach. Following the restaurant’s motto, “todo es fresco,” all ingredients used come from local farmers which is good for the community as well as the local economy.
The most unique aspect about this restaurant is not only the fact that the menu features bold, traditional flavors and sustainable ingredients, with a variety of home-cooked dishes, but also that after the main restaurant closes for the night, the good times continue as the restaurant doubles as a speakeasy in the back.
“The traditional Mexican dishes on the menu are all amazing and each time I’ve been, the line has been out the door,” said Alexa Fuller, customer. “I haven’t been able to experience the speakeasy part yet, but I hear that’s really cool too.”
With the expansion, the restaurant owners are aiming to make the new location individualized and specific to the West Palm Beach community. For this location, Coyo Taco has designed an atmosphere that reflects Palm Beach’s culture, providing residents, tourists and island employees an opportunity to enjoy lunch and dinner at an approachable and family-friendly price point.
Opening at 11 am and closing at 3 am, Coyo Taco provides quality food, for a reasonable price all day long in a small but comfortable and cozy eating environment. With room for 70 seats and 40 employees at the West Palm location, customers beware that space is quite limited in the restaurant and reservations cannot be made.
“I’ve never had a bad experience here,” said Eugenia Garcia, customer. “Yes, the line can get very long but it always moves pretty fast, at least in my experience. My favorite tacos are the Shrimp and Pollo al Pastor.”
With a good reputation as well as original location, this trendy and upcoming late night taco joint is sure to please any food lover or connoisseur. Opening up in West Palm will be a great addition to the restaurant’s customer base as well as notoriety.
