Taqueria Luciano to Open This Weekend

©Lumbres

From the words of the former owners of Asian BBQ (and as far as I know, still the owners of the building) and confirmed by their own Facebook page, Taqueria Luciano is supposed to open their new brick-and-mortar store at 3230 Reynolda Road in Winston-Salem, this Saturday, January 18 at 11am.

The new restaurant was announced in December at the same time as the announcement at Asian BBQ would be shutting its doors.

Luciano Perez makes fantastic, and authentic Mexican cuisine and I always love it when his truck is someplace that I am. Sometimes I even hunt him down. He will continue to run his food truck but this is a great time for his brick-and-mortar to kick off.

Congratulations, Luciano!

Updated hours:

Monday to Thursday 11 am to 9 pm
Friday and Saturday 11 am to 10 pm
Sunday 11 am to 8 pm

Zesto to Hold Spirit Week for Carver High School Cheerleaders

The cheerleaders at Carver High School in Winston-Salem are in need of new uniforms or uniforms at all.

Zesto Burgers & Ice Cream will be doing “Spirit Week” to benefit the CHS cheerleaders in order to help them obtain these uniforms.

This week, Tuesday, December 3 through Saturday, December 7, Zesto Burgers will donate a portion of all its sales for this cause. So, I invite you to run by one of my favorite places to eat and help them do good work for the CHS cheerleaders.

Zesto is located at 2600 New Walkertown Road.
