HIGHLAND PARK — Signs reading “Taco Fix Restaurant” and “Coming Soon” recently went up in the windows of the retail space at 5831 North Figueroa Street at the corner of Avenue 59.
Mike Izquierdo, a manager for project, said that Taco Fix is scheduled to open on August 31 and will be a counter-service restaurant serving homemade dishes. They are still finalizing the menus and prices but plan to publish them around August 20. For now, the restaurant’s website is under construction.
Taco Fix will open next door to Mexican bakery chain La Monarca, another newcomer to Figueroa Street that is set to open in coming months in a long-vacant space that had been a medical clinic.
Updated Oct. 22, 2015: The opening of Taco Fix has been pushed back to some time around the end of November. According to manager Mike Izquierdo, during the renovation the team ran into some building and safety issues. After working with the city of LA they have now received approval to continue with their plans.
