“I don’t like frozen food, so I was always looking for a place where I could go out to eat and feel like I was eating at home,” she said.
Denia is in charge of the food, and having lived in Mexico, California and Texas, she is able to provide both authentic and fusion-inspired dishes, the couple said.
“When you try the different dishes, sometimes you’ll be eating an authentic street taco from Mexico, and the next instance you are eating a fusion fried chicken taco from California,” Darren said.
The Tomball site is the third establishment for Grab N Go, which opened in Spring and Katy in 2017 and 2018, respectively.
“Tomball is growing; it’s got a lot of neighborhoods and things around it that makes it very attractive from a business [perspective],” Darren said.
The Fergusons were looking to open another restaurant at the time, and an opening provided them the opportunity to expand into Tomball last year.
Grab N Go Tacos has something for everyone, the Fergusons said.
“Our Roadrunner Taco is awesome for the ‘spiceheads,’ people that like a really spicy taco,” Darren said.
The eatery serves tacos along with nachos, burritos, quesadillas and other Tex-Mex staples.
The restaurant had to close down during the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic this spring but has since reopened while following government safety guidelines.
“Our name is Grab N Go Tacos, which implies you grab and go,” Darren said. “So 50% [of business] roughly is takeout. When we had to close our dine-in service, we got a lot more of our takeout business.”
Repeat business and loyal customers were also helpful for the business when COVID-19 measures restricted restaurant operations, Darren said.
“People want Grab N Go Tacos because they know what they are getting and know the flavor is going to be awesome,” he said. “And so in the middle of COVID[-19] or a pandemic, they are going to get those tacos.”
Darren added the to-go margarita service has been a hit.
“COVID has gotten us into our new takeout margarita business,” he said. “That is booming, so we are offering takeout margaritas at full strength to the Tomball community.”
