The celeb-backed joint looks like a lot of fun.

Entertainment news site the A.V. Club drops in on the news of Danny Trejo’s impending taco shop. While the Trejo's Tacos space itself, a former Taco Bell that’s been taken down essentially to the studs, is still under heavy construction, it seems that fans of the action franchise star can’t help be get excited.

Though the A.V. Club mentioned an arrival some time this month, that timeline has been pushed in favor of something closer to the end of spring / early summer. That means it won’t be long before Trejo’s starts to take shape thanks to the Spacecraft design team, complete with leather seating and ashwood inside, and a desert-y drought resistant landscape job out front. Trejo himself, an Angeleno native, has been tweeting about the upcoming arrival pretty heavily.

It’s always nice to see a celebrity restaurant owner who actually cares about the product his name is on.
