Carne asada tacos at Tacos Apson

A meaty smorgasbord at Tacos Apson in Tucson consists of cheesy caramelos (top left) and various tacos de carne asada, or grilled beef.  

One of Tucson's most beloved taquerias announced on Facebook this morning that it plans to open a second location on the northwest side.

Tacos Apson is going into a former Chuy's restaurant at 6741 N. Thornydale Road, down the street from Costco. 

Since it opened in 2001, Tacos Apson has gained a hardcore following for its Sonoran-style carne asada and other beefy wonders. The restaurant at 3501 S. 12th Ave. is owned by Francisco J. Durazo, son of one of the founders of Los Apson, a famous Mexican rock group from Agua Prieta, Sonora.

Tacos Apson regularly makes national lists of must-eat spots in publications like Food & Wine. So basically, we're very excited! 🌮
