(Updated at 1:15 p.m. on 3/30/2022) Taco Rock is opening its fourth location in Northern Virginia this summer.

The taco spot, started by Chef Cordero, is expected to open at Liberty Market, a new mixed-use development in Lorton. Taco Rock will occupy roughly 2,770 square feet of space at the center, which is anchored by grocer Lidl.

The restaurant already has locations in Rosslyn and Alexandria, and it recently opened a Falls Church site at the renovated Birch & Broad shopping center.

Chris Saa, a senior associate with Divaris Real Estate, Inc., said that the business has experienced “wild success” at its other locations and is eyeing other spots in the region.

“The taqueria is looking to bring their unique gourmet taco offerings and exceptional margaritas throughout Northern Virginia,” Saa said in a statement.

There is no official word yet on an exact opening date, but the business is expected to open its doors this summer, according to its promotional materials.

The menu includes staples of traditional Mexican street food, including a churro ice cream sandwich, cocktails and tacos.

Liberty Market is located at the intersection of Silverbrook Road and White Spruce Way. It’s expected to wrap up construction by the end of the year.

Elm Street Development is in the process of transforming the former Lorton Prison land into a shopping center with roughly 50,000 square feet of retail and 35,000 square feet of office space. About 352 residential units are also planned surrounding the site.

Lidl is expected to open in the fall. Other tenants include a pediatric dentistry and Ledo Pizza. Space has been allocated for a brewery as well.
