Jeffersontown will soon enjoy the popular local taqueria

el taco luchadoreThe taqueria named the most popular taco spot in the state by BuzzFeed & Yelp and recognized in Southern Living’s “City Guide to Louisville” announced  its fourth location will open in Jeffersontown on July 17.

The new El Taco Luchador is located at 9204 Taylorsville Rd and includes a full bar and vibrant outdoor patio.

“J-Town location has been in the works for a while,” said Olé Hospitality Group partner Rick Moir. “Everyone in the area seems to be very excited, not only about the tacos, but also about the fact that we’re locally-owned and operated.”

The restaurants, which are part of the Olé Hospitality Group, are known for their brightly painted walls adorned with colorful signature masks of “Luchadores,” the famed wrestler-entertainers of Mexico. El Taco Luchador serves over ten fresh, cooked-to-order tacos along with Mexican sandwiches called “tortas” as well as salads and signature sides like “elote callejeros,” grilled corn on the cob with mayo, cotija cheese and chile pequin and desserts like homemade churros.

El Taco Luchador’s downtown Louisville Jefferson Street location opened in August of 2018. A St. Matthews location at Meridian Avenue was added in 2017. The original El Taco Luchador on Baxter Ave. opened in 2013 and was expanded in 2018. A Colonial Gardens location is set to open later this summer.
