Trading Tijuana Taco Shop for Margaritas


Here’s a warm bienvenidos (welcome) back to the former Tijuana Taco Shop, now Margaritas Grill. After 10 years, the Lancaster Avenue favorite closed its doors in Wilmington, then moved out to Prices Corner (3320 Old Capitol Trail) in October. What made Tijuana Taco a landmark—authentic Mexican food prepared under the direction of the exacting DeMucha family—translates perfectly to the new location. But the new place comes with a new Tex-Mex corner on the menu, too. The decor, with its cheerful yellow walls and humorous Day of the Dead murals, is a bit fancier, but the service is as warm as ever, the fish tacos as delicious as ever. A Mariachi band drops in once a month, and after you’ve eaten your fill, you can dance it off at the DeMuchas’ nightclub. It’s right next door.
