If you’re visiting Houston and find yourself missing Austin, you will soon be able to get a taste of home in the Bayou City. Austin-based Tacodeli and Hopdoddy will both open their first Houston locations soon.

Hopdoddy is slated to open on Memorial Day at 4444 Westheimer Road, in between the Galleria and the Highland Village shopping areas. Tacodeli will open its first Houston location, at 1902 Washington Ave., later this year.

“I’ve been a huge fan of the Houston restaurant scene since I first started visiting the city back in the 80’s! It is very exciting to know that we will finally be able to sling tacos in a city with some serious culinary heritage,” Tacodeli co-founder Roberto Espinosa said. “We are especially excited to be opening in a unique part of the city along Washington Avenue with great neighbors such as B&B Butchers, Julep, and soon to open Platypus Brewing in our building.”

Tacodeli and Hopdoddy will join Uchi, JuiceLand and Torchy’s Tacos among Austin businesses that have expanded to Houston in recent years.
