About.

WHAT IS TACO YOLO.

It starts with our name. We get taco because well….we love tacos. We get YOLO from the acronym You Only Live Once. To us living once means life is too short to eat anything that isn’t fresh and delicious. Our motto is, Live Once, Do it Deliciously.

The Founders

Taco Yolo is founded by 2 experienced restaurateurs, a CPA and an MBA executive all with a combined 120+ years of experience in creating and developing brands and creating delicious meals in a comfortable environment served with top notch service. The ownership group will work tirelessly to ensure your new location is successful.

The Food

Our food makes Taco YOLO franchising the premier Mexican casual dining franchise. Taco Yolo is dedicated to serving simple, fresh Tex-Mex and Mexican food that is both authentic and modern. Lots of places say they have fresh food, but we mean it. Your Taco YOLO will not have a microwave or a freezer (except for ice cream). The menu is built around burritos, bowls and tacos and is all prepared fresh daily. Our chips and taco shells are made fresh in our kitchen every morning, and our beloved salsas are made fresh daily. Each one of our world-famous Burritos is rolled by hand, and our vegetables are cut fresh daily. Our produce is the freshest and ripest available — often locally sourced — and we use only 100% boneless, skinless all-white meat chicken, top-quality lean ground beef, steak and shrimp. We also provide vegetarian options, and our chef also creates weekly specials that keep the menu changing so we can deliver classic favorites and exciting innovative dishes that keeps our menu fresh and our customers excited to come back.

The Experience

Taco YOLO captures Mexico’s rich culinary culture and vibrant street food scene in rustic and warm atmospheres. Grab a quick bite at lunch or relax with a beer or wine in the evening. Whether it is a quick ‘grab-and-go’ for the business crowd, a break from a day’s shopping to recharge, or a fulfilling meal and drinks for an enjoyable evening out, Taco YOLO offers a welcoming, comfortable environment throughout the day.
