Taco Ranch Closing in November

All-natural taco concept from P. Terry’s shuttering soon

Terry Taco Enterprises announced that they will permanently close their remaining Taco Ranch location at 5033 W. Highway 290 on Fri., Nov. 3. The store’s been open since 2018, but … now it’s time to say adios.

“It’s with mixed emotions we announce the impending closure of Taco Ranch,” said Todd Coerver, P. Terry’s CEO. “We sincerely appreciate the loyal following that made Taco Ranch successful. But, as P. Terry’s continues to grow and prepare for entry into the Houston market in 2024, it’s imperative we have everyone’s full attention on our P. Terry’s expansion, to ensure its success.”

Judging from the amount of Best of Austin awards the locally founded burger chain has won, it’s a combination of great food and good service that will work with such corporate attention to ensure success wherever they expand. Since early 2020, P. Terry’s has grown from 16 locations in Austin and San Marcos to 31 locations throughout Central Texas.

Silver lining, saving grace: All Taco Ranch employees, many of whom started off working at P. Terry’s, will be offered positions at a P. Terry’s location.

What comes next: The company plans to sublease the building to Austin-based Cabo Bob’s.
