“now eat you tacos”

Enter the “Our” in “Our Story,” this means you.  The little taco night in a tiny town south of the Metro caught a little Twitter buzz, people started driving down from as far away as Ames, Iowa (ok, so 50 miles isn’t really that far, but it is if you are just coming down for some “bar tacos) to partake in the original Braised Pork Shoulder, Vegan Chorizo, Slaw, and hand pressed tortillas.  At this time the taco night deserved a name, and through the power of Twitter (which is how I get almost everything done these days) a name was born.  TACOPOCALYPSE. More social media buzz created more Taco Likers, which created more buzz, which brought the Tacopocalypse to the attention of some people who wanted to see this whole thing go a little further.  I was approached to bring Tacopocalypse to the Des Moines Downtown Farmers’ Market.  I said yes.  Now here we are, making thousands of tacos every week, getting much loved…um…love from our friends and the local press, standing on the cusp of expanding and bringing you a permanent location to get down with your Taco Liking selves.

Stopped in for the Sunday Brunchpocalypse, the ICBINAB was very flavorful and the Korean Beef Taco was outstanding!
