2 Mexican restaurants planned on Goose Creek Road

by Rich S » Thu Dec 16, 2021 6:38 pm

It looks like two Mexican restaurants will be opening a block apart on Goose Creek Road.

Bandido Taqueria Mexicana will be at 2901 Goose Creek Road — that’s the former Long John Silver’s spot at the corner of Goose Creek and Westport Road. This will be Bandido’s third Louisville location.

Just south of Westport Road, a restaurant called Taco Madres plans to open at 2840 Goose Creek — the long-vacant building that used to be home to Soora Korean restaurant and La Perla del Pacifico. I haven’t been able to find anything about Taco Madres online.

And in addition to these two restaurants, I Love Tacos just opened its third location about a mile and a half away in the old Tumbleweed building in Springhurst. I guess you can never have too many taco places in Louisville.

I noticed a couple of years ago that the number of taquerias in Louisville had surpassed the number of pizzerias. :shock: I think the margin has only grown since then.

Love Bandido! Glad they’re prospering.

And I wonder if Taco Madres is related to this excellent birria-focused food truck:

I hope so, because they’re great.

My daughter lives in London and she sometimes scolds me for taking our abundance of Mexican restaurants/cafes for granted. They have Indian out the wazoo but when she and her husband come back to Louisville we spend much time hitting every Mexican place around. And White Castle. My very English son in law loves WC.

Apparently they are related. I’ve seen the food truck parked outside the building on Goose Creek Road several times. I’m not sure if the food truck is actually operating there, though.

Also, Bandido’s Goose Creek location is finally set to open on July 5, according to Facebook. They’ve had a “coming soon” sign up for nearly a year.
