Can Fort Worth have enough tacos?

Construction has begun on the future home of Austin City Taco Co., a fast-casual taqueria setting up shop at 517 University Dr., near West 7th Street.

The 2,489-square-foot building will include a 462-square foot outdoor dining space/patio.

Set for completion in spring 2019, Austin City Taco Co. will feature a bright, upbeat, and contemporary design with white-washed walls, exposed brick, wood and metal siding, rustic wood posts and beams, concrete floors, and an exterior green wall, according to a new release. Design features will include a J&R smoker, J&R wood-fired rotisserie and a vintage cooler.

The menu is being developed with chef Juan Rodriguez and is expected to consist of flame-cooked achiote rotisserie chicken, gulf shrimp, veggie, and breakfast tacos, as well as 18-hour oak smoked brisket tacos. Other menu highlights include spicy salsas, crispy fries matched with warm queso, fresh tortillas, and specialty soft serve ice cream. Beverage offerings will include frozen house margaritas, cold local cervezas, Topo Chico, bottled Mexican Coca-Colas, and nitro cold brew coffee.

“We think the simplest ideas are the best, so our plan is to showcase Texas-style slow-smoked brisket and excellent tortillas, with a cool East Austin vibe,” said Rodriguez, culinary director for Austin City Taco Co. “We want to serve tacos of the highest quality, but without any pretense. Expect the menu to be a ‘greatest hits’ album with fun choices you crave.”

Cameron Powell, a Fort Worth resident and alumnus of The University of Texas at Austin, is the founder/owner of Austin City Taco Co. Rodriguez of Magdalena’s is serving as a primary stakeholder and culinary director. Other project partners include:

• Dallas-based Plan B Group – architecture, branding, design

• Weatherford-based Homeland Construction – general contractor

• Dallas-based Urban Structure – civil engineer

• Dallas-based Complete Restaurant Services, Inc. (CRS) – kitchen design

• Fort Worth-based Mission Restaurant Supply – equipment supply

• Mesquite-based J&R Manufacturing – smoker and rotisserie
