A representative of the D.C.-based Mexican chain told the Hyattsville Wire they don’t have an exact opening date yet, but construction is “well underway” on its first restaurant in Maryland.
Owner Osiris Hoil personally scouted various options in Maryland last year, but he liked Riverdale Park because of the new Whole Foods and its proximity to the University of Maryland.
Hoil doesn’t just expect students to be regulars at the restaurant, but as an avid cyclist he has also sponsored the college’s cycling team for the past year.
“People aren’t shy about speaking up on locations they’d like to see us in,” spokeswoman Abby Campbell told the Hyattsville Wire. “We’ve had a lot of people pushing for us to be in that area for a while.”
The restaurant will be open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., with its popular breakfast tacos as another draw for commuters.
The Riverdale Park location will be the 11th for the chain, which is everywhere from Dupont Circle to Rosslyn. Another location is underway in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, and the chain will then look for more in Maryland and around Philadelphia.
