Tacos Tacos Tacos has been closed temporarily since October of 2021. Fans of the popular eatery (or tacos in general), here is a reason to celebrate!

Robert Giuliani, the owner of Tacos Tacos Tacos told the Duluth News Tribune he is going to re-open, but in a new location. The restaurant, currently at 108 East Superior Street, had to close when the lease for that address ended. They've since found a new home, not far from where they previously operated.

Giuliani says he is moving a block away, to 202 East Superior Street. This is the former T-icy Roll location. Prior to that, it had been Lake Superior Art Glass.

When will the move happen? It's not quite known yet. Owner, Giuliani said with COVID affecting the supply chain and labor, he is still in the planning stages. He did say that he is hoping to open by summer.

Guiliani told the Duluth News Tribune that he was happy with the following in such a short time of Tacos Tacos Tacos. He said he was excited for everyone to see the new place and once finished with all the preparations will be very bright and located in the Historic Arts and Theater District.

Robert Giuliani has been in Mexico for most of the winter, trying other recipes to add to his authentic creations. He said to the DNT that Tacos Tacos Tacos will offer most of the same menu as before but he will also add some new inspirations he has tried in Mexico.

When I talked to Robert, he was newly engaged to his longtime girlfriend Elin who is also part of the restaurant. Guiliani told me he prides himself on keeping the restaurant about being like the real thing, like a trip south of the border once you walk through the door.

He also told me about putting together a food truck to take Tacos Tacos Tacos on the road. He said he was going to "drive Mexico" to locations around Duluth or to the Twin Cities, where ever the demand is.

He also told me about the desire to open in the Twin Cities, and wants to put a location in by the Xcel Energy Center. I told him he should go inside the "X' so I could have Tacos Tacos Tacos during a Wild Game.

Robert told me he worked with chefs in Mexico while he was there. in order to get the recipes right and some of them asked if he would either work for them or open a store in Mexico.

Guiliani is excited about all the changes and told me he is looking forward to sharing the new creations and Tacos Tacos Tacos location with Duluth. He even asked me if I would be a part of the next Tacos Tacos Tacos Taco Eating Contest in the Fall.

Here are some highlights from the first annual Taco Eating Contest.

Where Is The Best Fish Fry In The Twin Ports?

The fish fry is one of those meals that has become synonymous with Upper Midwest cuisine. While New England claims its seafood, Texas has its barbecue, and California is the land of 10,000 salads - it seems like the fish fry is omnipresent on a lot of restaurant and grill menus in the part of the country we live in.

And while some could argue what constitutes a proper fish fry (i.e. is the fish battered and deep dried, grilled, or broiled?). And - some might debate whether or not the side dish matters (i.e. is it served with "chips" (French fries) or some other side like mashed potatoes or rice?). No one debates what day of the week is traditional for a fish fry meal: That honor goes to Friday. The Friday connection has it's origins because a variety of religious denominations couldn't eat meat on that day of the week - especially during the Lenten season. However, even outside of Lent, the fish fry special is something most people expect to see on the menu at a restaurant on a Friday.

Even with the special being so prolific to Friday restaurant menus, it seems like the common question - especially here in the Northland - is "who has a fish fry?" or "who has the best fish fry?".

To answer those questions, we've compiled the following list of businesses - listed in alphabetic order - who specifically make mention of their Friday fish fry special on their menus, websites, and social media sites.

Try one, try some, or try them all. You can't go wrong!
