Last week, Taco Trio opened its second location in Portland at 1706 Forest Avenue. The company has had great success in South Portland's budding Knightville neighborhood, offering authentic Mexican cuisine from breakfast to dinner in an area that has limited dining options. This new spot is in a similarly underserved section of outer Forest Avenue, near the busy brewery cluster at Riverside Industrial Park. Taco Trio will likely give neighboring two-star Yelp reviewed Tortilla Flat some healthy competition.
Will a third location eventually complete the trio, perhaps closer to Portland's downtown district? Time will tell. For now, take a peek inside Taco Trio's second restaurant, where the drink bar is unfinished but the salsa bar makes up for it.
