 In conjunction with National Taco Day on Monday, Oct. 4, 2021, Arlington Eats host Cynthia Lemus visits Gilberto’s Taco Shop.

Gilberto’s Taco Shop is known for its birria tacos, a Mexican dish. José Ruiz opened Gilberto’s Taco Shop in 2019.

“I had a craving one day, and that’s how it started,” Ruiz said. “I was craving breakfast tacos and breakfast burritos. I couldn’t find them anywhere. I’m going to start my own restaurant and we’re going to serve breakfast all day long.”

In addition to breakfast foods, Gilberto’s serves a variety of Mexican dishes like quesadillas and special super fries. 

"Ever since I moved to Arlington, established my business and had my daughter, my life has changed,” Ruiz said.

Gilberto’s Taco Shop is located at 1112 East Abram Street in Downtown Arlington. You can learn more about Gilberto’s on the restaurant’s Facebook page.
