Detroit goes taco loco

October 14, 2020

Like their name suggests, Detroit Loves Tacos, Detroit does indeed love tacos, and husband and wife duo, Julie and Jason Stevens, are making tacos Detroiters can’t get enough of. While they’ve been doing pop-ups since 2018, when their catering business really took off, their most recent pop-ups are serving as a preview for their upcoming brick-and-mortar at 9425 John R, Detroit, which they hope to open by January 2021. For now though, they’ll continue their Tuesday and Thursday pop-ups at Nancy Whiskey Detroit, 2644 Harrison Street, Detroit, and throughout the city on weekends. Be sure to get there early though – they sell out quickly, like their most recent addition, the Birria de Res taco. “It got introduced to the menu last week and we sold out in two hours,” Julie said. Detroit Loves Tacos is making sure their menu appeals to everyone, too, with tacos ranging from a cauliflower taco to their pineapple pork, that has rightfully earned the nickname Triple P. The latter is her spin on al pastor, and has chorizo, bacon, pork, and pineapple. They also serve Mexican sandwiches with homemade gravy and put tacos in a lettuce wrap upon request. “I’m just trying to bring a little bit of Mexico to the north end,” Julie said.
