Taqueria Luciano to Open This Weekend


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

Washington Perk & Provision Company. Better than a convenience store but not quite a grocery store, in the heart of Washington Park and Downtown WSNC.
