Popular Excelsior taco spot Lago Tacos will be opening a second location in the Uptown spot that formerly housed Heidi's, reports Stephanie March at Mpls.St.Paul Magazine. The first Lago Tacos opened in February 2013, according to the Sun Sailor. It serves up tacos (ranging from traditional al pastor to more Minnesotan walleye), burritos, salads, and a wide range of appetizers (fried avocados, anyone?), as well as fresh-made margaritas and a large selection of tequila (plus wine, beer, and other cocktails). This will make the second upscale taco and margarita spot to open in Uptown in a year, since Nico's Taco & Tequila Bar opened in the former Birdhouse on Hennepin space—another spot that formerly belonged to Heidi and Stewart Woodman—in September of 2013.
March says that Lago Tacos expects to start construction soon and possibly open as early as this spring.
