Tacombi Expands with Forest Hills Taqueria

Posted on: April 7th, 2021 at 5:00 am by

Popular taco chain, Tacombi, continues its expansion streak this year with another outer-borough location in Queens.

A Boogie reader tells us that Tacombi just put up plywood outside a store on Austin Street in Forest Hills. News of its arrival near the Tennis Stadium – the second Queens location behind Long Island City – arrives exactly a year after the business spawned three other taquerias around the city.

Build-out is underway, and a grand opening is expected later this spring. Poised to capitalize on stadium concerts once they return.

Known for its small taco servings and pressed juices, Tacombi began life in 2005 out of a Volkswagen trailer in Mexico. Five years later, it came to the shores of Manhattan with Fonda Nolita on Elizabeth Street.

Forest Hills is the tenth restaurant in New York.
