If you’ve got a craving for Taqueria Santa Cruz, you now have two San Luis Obispo locations to choose from.

The Mexican restaurant’s second location, on Foothill Boulevard between Domino’s Pizza and Milk In It, just opened.

In October 2018, co-owner Gonzalo Hernandez told The Tribune that the space is nearly 2,000 square feet — much larger than the original location, which opened in 2013 at 1308 Monterey St. in San Luis Obispo. State records show that Taqueria Santa Cruz received a license to sell beer and wine in 2014.

Hernandez, who co-owns the restaurant with his brothers, Victor and Jose, said they chose the Foothill Boulevard location to be closer to students.

“We have a lot of customers here and they need more space,” he said.

Taqueria Santa Cruz serves up classic Mexican dishes such as burritos, tacos, nachos and tortas. Hernandez said he and his brothers plan to have the same menu at the new location, but may add some different dishes.
