Tacos Bravas – Tacos are Coming

You guys. Never since the advent of the taco emoji has there been such exciting news in the world of tacos. Bravas, the culinary geniuses who have brought us specialty hot dogs and gourmet burgers are bringing a Taco Bus to the city of Fort Wayne. Behold Tacos Bravas, the newest creation of the Bravas food empire.   I sat down with owner Bo Gonzalez at Bravas specialty burger joint to get the skinny on the newest addition to the Bravas family.

But now with the last five successful years under his belt, he is ready to go back to his original Bravas concept and create specialty tacos to be washed down with horchata and fresh lemonade self-served off of the bus.   So wait…why a bus? You can thank a late night scrolling Craig’s List for that. Bo came across an old Head Start bus for sale on a Sunday and by that Wednesday he pulled the trigger and bought it creating Fort Wayne’s first Tacos Bravas taco bus, which is projected to officially open this coming fall. They will close for winter, although you can order them for indoor catering just like the other Bravas creations.   Bravas is known for its exceptional quality so naturally Tacos Bravas dishes will be made with fresh ingredients including...
