Reston’s Taco Zocalo is expanding again in Fairfax County

Taco Zocalo has officially moved well past its days as a food truck under the name Chef on Wheels.

The Mexican restaurant is opening another location in Fairfax County. A company representative tells FFXnow that the new location is expected to open in the Lincolnia area within two to three months.

It will open in Barcroft Plaza at 6343D Columbia Pike, according to county permits.

Taco Zocalo currently has locations in Ashburn, Reston and Chantilly.

It was started in 2011 by Afghan immigrant and chef Basir Ahadi, whose love of Mexican food inspired him to start his own food truck. His first brick-and-mortar location opened in Reston in 2017.

Items on the menu include tacos, burrito bowls, chimichangas and elote or Mexican street corn.

Located at the intersection of Columbia Pike and Lincolnia Road, Barcroft Plaza is anchored by Harris Teeter and also home to tenants like Starbucks, Glory Days Grill and Jake’s Ice Cream. Taco Zocalo will occupy 1,532 square feet between Navy Federal Credit Union and New York’s Chopped Cheese, per property owner Federal Realty’s site plan.

The site plan shows only one vacancy: a 2,758-square-foot suite next to Super Pollo and Bubble Nails on the western end of the shopping center.
