Brothers-in-law Enrique Ricardo Antunano and Ricardo Garza partnered together to open Ricardo's Tacos & More in February 20, and they are serving some of the same recipes they grew up eating in the interior of Mexico.
"They are what our moms used to make," Antunano said.
Antunano and Garza are no strangers to the restaurant business—they own a Quiznos in Round Rock on Louis Henna Boulevard and one in Austin on 38th Street.
They said Ricardo's Tacos & More gives them more flexibility and control over the menu than operating a franchise. Since opening the restaurant, Antunano and Garza have continued to tweak what the restaurant offers—they added hamburgers several months ago, and in November, added Ricardo's Special Nachos ($4.50), a nacho dish piled high with cheese, ranch style beans, beef fajita meat and jalapeos.
The restaurant offers breakfast tacos weekday mornings until 11 a.m. and weekends until noon. Garza said two of the more popular tacos are the egg and bacon taco and the egg and chorizo taco ($1.50 each). Even if a breakfast taco combination is not on the menu, Garza said they will make customized orders.
Garza said they expect to start selling beer in the future and also continue to modify the menu.
