Velvet Taco, the Dallas-based taco concept that incorporates Asian, Indian, and Tex-Mex flavors into its menu, will soon open its fifth Houston location.

The fast-casual chain has picked April 26 for the opening date of its Rice Village location at 2525 Rice Blvd., Houston, not only bringing fresh ingredients, margaritas, grab-and-go beverages, weekly featured tacos, and sides, but it will also add 50 jobs to the Houston market.


The announcement comes after the chain opened its third Houston location Jan. 11 in the Heights and fourth in the Galleria area Jan. 25.

The new restaurant will fill nearly 3,400 square feet of space, with a covered patio available for up to 20 people. 346-200-8081. www.velvettaco.com
