Downtown St. Paul is getting a trendy new taco spot.

Taco Libre opened its newest location Wednesday on 354 Wabasha St N., the former home of American Burger Bar.

It is the fourth location for the fast rising taco brand, but the first in St. Paul. There are currently Taco Libres in West St. Paul, Edina and Oakdale.

Taco Libre does authentic Mexican tacos, its website says, noting one of their chefs is from Mexico City.

"We respect the Mexican culture and the magnificent cuisine that comes with it," the site adds.

Their menu includes beef, pork, chicken and veggie options, available in traditional tacos, on plates, in bowls, or served a few other ways. They also offer fish tacos, tamales, tortas and more.

New to the downtown St. Paul location is a beer wall, featuring 20 different kinds of beer, plus four margaritas and mezcal cocktails, the restaurant said in its opening announcement.

"We are grateful to all of our loyal costumers and are thrilled for you all to come visit Taco Libre —Downtown St. Paul," they added.
