Just Tacos Time celebrated a grand opening Nov. 15 to introduce the community to the new eatery. The restaurant opened Oct. 19 at 1315 S. Range Line Rd.
Owner David Abebe, who also owns a commercial cleaning service, is new to the restaurant business and is involved in its day-to-day operations. He chose the Range Line Road location because of its high-traffic volume and proximity to residential and commercial areas.
“So far, we have heard very positive responses from the customers,” Abebe said. “We have had customers come again to the restaurant.”
Just Tacos Time is decorated in traditional Mexican decor with brightly painted walls featuring birds, sombreros and a large guitar. It can seat 25 people and has a mix of high- and low-top tables. A staff of five employees keeps the restaurant running smoothly.
Abebe said he wanted to keep the menu simple and focus on tacos, burritos and breakfast sandwiches and burritos. Just Tacos Time offers several protein options, as well as vegetarian and vegan items, and a children’s menu.
Prices range from $5 to $10.
“There is no special dish. I just encourage everyone to try everything,” Abebe said. “Most customers like our tacos best.”
For now, Abebe has no plans to add specialty items to the menu.
“I just want to focus on the tacos,” Abebe said. “The plan is to introduce more of the Carmel community so they can come experience fresh and fast tacos.”
