Oakton residents will have a new Tex-Mex restaurant in their stretch of Fairfax County at the end of the month.

Taco Rock will be moving into a 3,206-square-foot space at the Oakton Shopping Center (2930 Chain Bridge Road, Suite 102) by the end of August, Divaris Real Estate Assistant Vice President Christopher Saa confirmed via email.

“If you’re looking for a great atmosphere, amazing cocktails and hands down the best tacos and street food, Taco Rock is where you want to be,” Saa said in a February press release. “Mike and his team have created a super cool concept that has proved itself in the market. We are excited to see what the future holds and are in expansion mode as we speak.”

Last year, Taco Rock told FFXnow that it would also be opening a new location at Liberty Market, a mixed-use development in Lorton, occupying approximately 2,770 square feet of space at the center that also houses grocer Lidl.

The press release from Feb. 13 notes that the Lorton storefront is set to open this fall, which will make it the fifth Taco Rock to hit Northern Virginia, alongside locations in Rosslyn, Alexandria and Falls Church.

Founded in 2019 by Chef Mike Cordero, his sons Nick and Anthony Cordero and partner Chef Stefano Marzano, Taco Rock is best known for its blue corn tortilla tacos and ice cream churro sandwiches accompanied by rock and roll music.

Cordero Hospitality employs over 300 people in Northern Virginia, the press release says.
