Rusty Taco, a Tex-Mex joint, has just opened at 1760 South Havana in Aurora, in the former home of an Old School Burger.
This is the first Rusty Taco in Colorado, but the third state where you can find the franchise. Since it was founded in 2010, the Dallas-based chain has expanded in north Texas, then also moved into the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.
As the name suggests, Rusty Taco focuses on tacos, as including breakfast tacos, which can be hard to come by in the Denver area.
