Fort Worth taqueria chain Salsa Limón has opened its fourth location, Salsa Limón Centro, in downtown Fort Worth. The restaurant is one block from Sundance Square, at 550 Throckmorton St., on the ground level of the Tower building, in the former Qdoba spot.

Centro is now Salsa Limón's most spacious location, and it fully embraces the building's Brutalist-style architecture while incorporating a traditional Mexico City market vibe. That includes a stunning signature flower wall.

The menu offers tacos and a whole new lineup of drinks exclusive to the Central location, which will also boast a full-service bar. On offer will be a sour margarita made with freshly squeezed limes and tangy Tajín, or a spiked version of horchata, the creamy rice milk drink.

​Salsa Limón's approach is Mexican, modern, and organic. Rooted in tradition, its tacos include Mexico City street-style favorites with an Oaxacan influence. There are tacos, tortas, quesadillas, burritos, and bowls. Salsas are made daily. Meats include marinated chicken, chorizo, barbacoa, pork shoulder, tripe, tongue, breakfast tacos, and a vegetarian option with avocado and rice.

Since its beginning as a small taqueria in Fort Worth's Gran Plaza, Salsa Limón has grown to include a fleet of food trucks and brick-and-mortar venues, each reflecting the community they serve. The chain also makes sustainability efforts, including a rainwater collection system, composting, and chicken raising at its Distrito location.
