Dai Due Taqueria at Fareground closed for the day after crazy first weekend

[cmg_anvato video=4297954]

People knew Fareground was going to be popular. But it turns out it was very, very, very popular. So popular that Jesse Griffith’s Dai Due Taqueria ran out of its locally sourced meat after a wild first few days that included serving 1,000 tacos over 12 straight hours on Saturday. In all of his years in restaurants, Griffiths said he’d never seen anything like it.

Griffiths, who was headed to meet his purveyor and prepare to be butchering all day, said the Taqueria closure would only be for Tuesday and that they would reopen at 7 a.m. on Wednesday. Dai Due, which sources all of its meat from Texas and has been working to mitigate the state’s feral hog population, will likely serve 400 of the animals at the Taqueria over the next year, according to chef-hunter-fisherman-restaurateur Griffiths.
