PHOENIX — Taco Chelo, an established taquería in downtown Phoenix, is getting set to open a second location in Tempe.

The new restaurant is located at 521 S. College Ave., Suite 112, adjacent to Postino Annex and Snooze west of Arizona State University.

The taco shop was initially scheduled to debut in early May, but the opening has been pushed back to May 30.

According to its website, Taco Chelo “is a collaboration between chef Suny Santana, artist Gennaro Garcia and restaurateur Aaron Chamberlin.”

The Tempe location will have the same menu as the Phoenix restaurant (located at 501 E. Roosevelt St.), but the restaurant will look much different.

“This expansion is an incredible milestone for us and is a testament to the dedication from the entire team that’s made Taco Chelo a staple in downtown Phoenix,” Chamberlin said in a press release.

“I grew up in the East Valley, which makes bringing the restaurant to my old stomping grounds in Tempe even more special.”

Taco Chelo debuted in downtown Phoenix in 2018.
