Taco Bamba Expects to Open First MoCo Location in June

Back in January we let you know that the first Maryland location of Taco Bamba will open in Rockville’s Congressional Plaza. We have been told that it will open on Friday, June 4th.

The cult favorite takeout taqueria’s sixth location will be located at 1627 Rockville Pike in a 2,766-square-foot space designed by Swatchroom’s Maggie O’Neill.

Albisu and his culinary team of Tom Hall, Tim Raymond (both Maryland natives), and Faiz Ally will build a menu of tacos original to the Rockville location. Taco Bamba Rockville will extend the taqueria’s lauded catering and neighborhood delivery operations to the Maryland

“I’ve always considered Rockville a culinary destination,” Albisu said. “I grew up crossing the river into Maryland to eat the many different cuisines represented on the Pike. Places like the old Houston’s, Bob’s Shanghai, and La Limeña. These iconic restaurants and others will inspire our nuestros menu.”

This location will offer wings, enchiladas, and chilaquiles, as well as Taco Bamba’s famous line of larger-than-life torta sandwiches. The Maryland-inspired list of nuestros tacos may include original fillings like crab cakes with slaw and mini fries, Chinese-style fried fish, and duck carnitas. Taco Bamba beverage director Amin Seddiq will oversee a bar menu of classic and original cocktails, with an emphasis on agave spirits, in addition to local and Mexican beer and wine.

“Congressional Plaza has long served as a retail and restaurant destination for generations of Montgomery County residents. We are thrilled to add to the customer experience and welcome Taco Bamba Taqueria, with its own storied reputation, to the community,” said James Milam, Senior Vice President at Federal.
