Capital Tacos — a Tampa, Florida-based chain that is expanding quickly after winning several honors from national magazines, will jump the Mississippi River for the first time as it opens three Boulder County locations beginning in 2023 under a new
franchise agreement. Father-daughter duo Jason and Marilyn Scoby will open the fast-casual Tex-Mex eateries in and around Boulder and Longmont.
Capital Tacos offers its flavors in a taco, burrito or bowl, including fajita chicken and bacon in a chipotle BBQ sauce, shaved steak with a three-cheese blend, tiger shrimp in a rice wine vinegar glaze and more traditional offerings like pork carnitas. It also serves appetizers like Mexican street corn and queso bites with dipping sauce, main dishes like monster quesadillas and crazy fries and desserts such as mini churros and traditional Mexican cheesecake.
“Marilyn and I share a deep passion for food, as well as the desire to build something together that’s our own,” Jason Scoby said in a news release. “We went on a national search for a restaurant concept dedicated to true innovation and serving uniquely delicious food. That’s when we found Capital Tacos, a brand defined by a mission to deliver the most flavorful Tex-Mex out there – a flavor that’s truly been lacking here in Colorado for quite some time – and has the track record, guest recognition and awards to back it up.”
