Fuzzy’s Taco Shop Celebrates Grand Opening in Tyler

Fuzzy’s Taco Shop celebrated its Grand Opening in Tyler, Texas, on Monday. The 4,400 square-foot fast casual restaurant located at 6361 Old Jacksonville Hwy, will be the third Fuzzy’s being built, owned, and operated by franchisees William Tate, Brandon Phillips and Kevin Van Meter.

The Tyler location will feature a full bar with a welcoming patio, perfect for relaxing outside and sipping on margaritas and ice cold beers. As a veteran-owned business, the new Tyler location will donate 10 percent of all Grand Opening day sales to 22Kill, an organization that raises awareness and provides resources to veterans suffering from the veteran suicide epidemic and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

“We are excited to open our second Fuzzy’s Taco Shop in East Texas,” said William Tate. “I believe our laid back and welcoming environment will resonate with Tyler residents and provide the perfect setting for guests to enjoy our fresh Mexican food, frozen margaritas and ice-cold beer.” Fuzzy’s Taco Shop’s new location will be easily accessible to all members of the Tyler community.

Guests can look forward to enjoying signature Baja Tacos, served on their choice of a soft or crispy shell, and consisting of the guest’s choice of protein including chicken, brisket, ground beef, pork, veggies, grilled or tempura fish, grilled or tempura shrimp, fajita chicken, or fajita beef, and topped with garlic sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, shredded cheese, cilantro and feta. Guests can also choose from burrito bowls, jumbo burritos, salads, nachos, and quesadillas. For a more traditional Mexican dinner, look to one of the enchilada, fajita or combo plates, also customizable with choice of protein.

Fuzzy’s Taco Shop’s 100-plus locations serve breakfast all day long, offering a robust selection that includes breakfast tacos and jumbo burritos (guests can choose from eggs, bacon, cheese, potatoes, chorizo and shrimp) as well as the brand’s “breakfast favorites,” including huevos rancheros, migas, chilaquiles, and the breakfast taco plate (all served with Latin-fried potatoes and refried beans).

Entrees are complimented by starters, including chips paired with queso, jalapeño bottle caps, fire-roasted salsa, or guacamole, and essential sides such as black or Borracho beans with pico de gallo, mix-mex fried rice, cilantro-lime rice, Latin-fried potatoes, and refried beans. Delicious desserts are the perfect way to complete any meal at Fuzzy’s, and beverage service showcases soft drinks, tea, beer, and signature margaritas.

A kid’s menu featuring entrees children will love is also available, including a taco plate, nachos, cheeseburger quesadilla and chicken sticks, with carrots and ranch dressing offered as a side.
