Greensboro has a new restaurant, a cantina, Taco Mama. It is located in Irving Park, at the end of the plaza close to Cornwallis. It is located in what was formerly the army-navy store, 3,800 sq. ft. space. Since the space is open, it seems to extend forever. And, with the nice weather, the front windows only have screens in them, bring the outside in. The restaurant has been well received by the public and it really adds to the food options in the area.
Will Haver, the Alabama entrepreneur who opened Taco Mama, is said to pay attention to detail. He uses fresh ingredients and hires people when he finds the right person for the job- even if they aren't looking for someone at the moment. To be sure, he has a recipe that is taking the east coast by storm and Greensboro is the first city in North Carolina to have one. That's right, not Charlotte, not Raleigh; Greensboro, a fact that is, perhaps, indicative of how quickly our community is changing.
