Tacon Madre Authentic Mexican Fast Food opens in Wyoming
Want a quick bite that isn’t the usual burger and fries? A new authentic Mexican restaurant serving tacos, chilaquiles, tortas, flautas, birria and more has arrived in the Grand Rapids area.
Tacon Madre opens in Wyoming, Michigan
Tacon Madre (meaning “mother of all tacos”) is located at 3501 S. Division Ave. in Wyoming.
Grand Rapid Business Journal reports that the authentic Mexican fast food joint (with a few more surprises!) began its soft opening phase at the end of June.
Martha Hernandez owns Taco Tadron with her significant other, Leoe Vasquez, a graphic designer who also owns the Outlaw Roasted Corn food truck. You can see Vasquez’s art on the walls of the new restaurant.
Hernandez tells GRBJ they wait to announce a grand opening until they have had time to listen to their customers and respond to requests.
Currently, Taco Madron is open for dine-in (counter service) and drive-thru customers from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday, and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
Food at Taco Madre in Wyoming
According GRBJ, Hernandez began his career as a home cook, preparing food and selling it to friends and family. She honed her craft by enhancing old family recipes with tricks learned from watching hours of cooking videos on YouTube.
Hernandez grills carne asada and chicken, and his birria is a mix of three different types of meat slow-cooked in spices for seven hours.
I feel like birria is super popular right now, so if you like it, Tacon Madre has some unusual and delicious dishes that I can’t wait to try!
- Pizza Birria – Layers of flour tortillas, beef cooked in birria, melted cheese, cilantro, onion, eaten on the side for dipping.
- Birria Ramen – Mexican-style pulled beef Birria, Japanese ramen, onion, cilantro
Additional meats served at Tacon Madre include pork, chorizo, steak, and shrimp, which you can get in tacos, tortas, burritos, flautas, fajitas, and more.
Pictured below are Chilaquiles (fried corn tortilla pieces) with Arrachera (Mexican skirt steak).
Tacon Madre also serves Churros with ice and Aguas Fresca, which are light, fruity, non-alcoholic drinks.
