Taco Bamba opens March 12!

A Bastion of Pimento Cheese Empanadas and Catfish Tacos Arrives in Green Hills

Nashville marks the 13th location of D.C.’s Taco Bamba

Tacos weren’t the first thing that came to mind when Rosa Susinski was deciding what to do with the space next to her market in Falls Church, Virginia.

“When my mom asked me what I wanted to do in that store — she wanted to do a sandwich shop — ‘let’s just do tacos’ kind of fell out of my mouth,” says chef Victor Albisu, a James Beard Award-nominated chef who’s competed on Beat Bobby Flay and served as a guest judge on Hell’s Kitchen. “She was puzzled. I was puzzled. But we did it anyway.”

Eleven years later, Albisu is on the verge of opening the thirteenth location of his humble taqueria — and the first in Tennessee. Taco Bamba is slated to open within Hill Center Green Hills at 4017 Hillsboro Pike at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, March 12.
