What is Taco Pollo?
Well we really aren’t a half-taco-chicken-animal, though it would be cool if we were. Taco Pollos are people who enjoy the journey of life and quality tacos along the way.
The Taco Pollo Team
Joseph Holguin – Head Taco Pollo
Having grown up 30 mins – 1hr from the Mexican border, I feel that I might know a little bit about tacos. I have no formal cooking experience, hell I can barely make a Hot Pocket, but having great cooks in my family I’ve been eating amazing, authentic Mexican food my whole life.
How did Taco Pollo begin?
When I was growing up, my Abuelita always called me and my brothers her “pollitos,” which means little chickens. Even as grown men she still calls us her “pollitos.” Also, I really like soft, CORN chicken tacos, this has been the go-to taco meal for a very long time. When I moved to Austin I found that there were tons of taco places to eat at, but I didn’t know what places were good. Lastly, I’m just a little goofy, so I thought seeing a chicken wearing a taco suit would be awesome. Mix all these together and you get EL TACO POLLO.
