Fuzzy’s Taco Shop Opening Fifth Austin Location

Fuzzy’s Taco Shop will open on January 30 in Bastrop, Texas, debuting its fifth location in the greater Austin metropolitan area. The 4,750 square-foot fast-casual restaurant is instilled with the promise to focus its full attention on promptly and efficiently providing guests with generous helpings of uniquely flavorful foods at a fair price, in a fun atmosphere. The Bastrop Fuzzy’s Taco Shop is located at 107 Childers Drive, Suite 700.

“Fuzzy’s Taco Shop is a perfect fit for the Bastrop community,” says the brand’s local franchisee Eric Smith. “We’ve noticed a continued desire amongst members of our community for fresh and flavorful food, served in a fast, yet comfortable environment. We felt that Fuzzy’s would provide the perfect setting for folks to hang out while enjoying great tasting food, and an ice cold beer or frozen margarita.”

The Bastrop location will feature a full service bar, an enclosed outdoor patio with a retractable roof, and a side patio for year-round use. The enclosed patio features a window that opens into the bar and is available to rent for events. Located off State Highway 21 W at Childers Drive, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop’s new location will be easily accessible for all members of the Bastrop community.

The signature Baja Tacos are served on the guests’ choice of a soft or crispy shell, and consist of the diner’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. Diners can also choose from jumbo burritos, salads, nachos, quesadillas and sandwiches. 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), or the signature Big Fuzz Breakfast Sandwich, which is a meal in itself!

Entrees are complimented by starters, including chips paired with queso, fire-roasted salsa, or guacamole, and essential sides such as black beans with pico de gallo, mix-mex fried rice, cilantro-lime rice, Latin-fried potatoes, Borracho beans, 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.
