EDGEWATER — Flaco's Tacos, the latest addition to Granville's food scene, is set to open Monday with $3 margaritas and a new ice cream bar dessert counter.
The Mexican food joint will be open from 10:30 a.m.-11 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays (until 10 p.m. on Sundays), according to the restaurant's website, under the Granville "L" stop at 1116 W. Granville Ave.
Flaco's is known for its Mexican cuisine and weekly drink specials, like margaritas and sangria, and in October a dessert counter will also open with a new build-your-own-ice-cream-bar setup.
The ice cream bar will let customers pick their own flavor of ice cream on a stick and choose which chocolate to dip it in before having it topped off with sprinkles.
Other Mexican favorites like paletas will be available as well.
The Flaco's Granville project was approved for its $500,000 renovation in April. The mini-chain signed a 10-year lease in 2014 with the CTA that included the use of an outdoor patio that takes up part of the sidewalk.
Edmund Hebson and his brother Jim own the business, which will be the third location in addition to spots Downtown and in Streeterville. A previous location in Wrigleyville closed in anticipation of the move to Edgewater.
