La Taqueria Brand opens second location at SteelCraft in Long Beach

After opening its first, flagship location on Seventh Street in February 2020, La Taqueria Brand has added a second location to its family at SteelCraft, the urban outdoor eatery in Bixby Knolls.

The locally owned taco shop officially opened for business today and will be open Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

“We are thrilled to be opening our second location and are even more grateful to be joining the amazing list of eateries at SteelCraft Long Beach,” according to a statement from the La Taqueria Brand management team. “With the success of our first location among the Long Beach community, we were looking to expand. When we received the opportunity to join the SteelCraft family, we immediately knew it would be a perfect fit.”

La Taqueria Brand touts its use of simple, authentic ingredients in crafting its menu of traditional street tacos, quesadillas, and burritos, but also caters to vegan eaters with offerings of plant-based picadillo, pastor and chorizo.

SteelCraft is located at 3768 Long Beach Blvd.
