At Central Taco we serve bold Mexican tradition. We are taking our inspiration of traditional Mexican taquerias and translating it into bold flavors and attitude. You will taste the flavors of Mexico and have a one of a kind dining experience.
We are located in the heart of The Woodlands and Spring area in the Portofino Shopping Center in Shenandoah, TX.
Come try our Mex-Mex food and be prepared for a tasteful trip to Mexico City cuisine, without leaving town.
Central Taco is the first U.S. location of distinguished Mexican taquerias with more than 30 years of experience and recognition in Mexico City.
In 1962 our founder introduced his house specialty “tacos al carbon”. This taco combined finely chopped charcoal-grilled steak with onion, cilantro, and lime juice. With one trademark item we revolutionized the Mexican taqueria culture by creating Mexico's most popular taco.
The legacy of the signature “tacos al carbon” has continued, we also originated many other unique taco creations which we are proud to bring to the U.S.
Our recipes are kept secret, but our bold flavors and freshness are no secret.
At Central Taco we apply the mission of quality and freshness to our food. Every detail in the selection and cooking process is given quality time and care to serve the best product. Each produce item and ingredient is selected carefully to make all of our sauces, salsas, and guacamole fresh everyday. The highest quality meat cuts are always grilled to order. We use only the most authentic ingredients, creating traditional preparations with a twist.
We thrive to make “our flavor present in all of our many creations”. We aim to be the best! From our food, to the people preparing the food, to the experience, and most importantly to the satisfaction of our consumers.
Following our tradition we always use fresh ingredients locally grown to support our local farmers.
