Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

We reported in May that husband-and-wife team Armando Hernandez and Nadia Holguin would be opening a second location of Tacos Chiwas. Looks like that time has come. Tacos Chiwas 2.0 is now open at the northwest corner of Alma School and Warner roads.

The second location is housed in what was FrinGo’s Kitchen, a Puerto Rican restaurant in the east Valley strip mall.

The first Tacos Chiwas locations premiered in spring 2016 near 20th Street and McDowell Road. It specializes in, as we're sure you know, tacos a la pollo, asada, lengua, and barbacoa. It took no time for it to earn a dedicated fanbase.

Other projects have presented themselves since the opening of Tacos Chiwas more than three years ago, like teaming with the Graduate Hotel for eateries like Normal Diner.

For more information, see the Tacos Chiwas website or follow them on Instagram.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
