The yellow tape and chain-link fence formerly surrounding the Tacos Rapido compound at 2345 West Alameda Avenue have finally been removed, which means that all you drunkards hankering for breakfast burritos, tacos, tostadas and and tortas at 2 a.m. now have another 24/7 pit stop at which to get your Mex in the city. The original location at 2800 West Evans boasts the same hours but doesn't have a dining room, whereas this new joint can accommodate a whole posse of obnoxious inebriants.
That said, I stopped in yesterday to check out the new digs, and judging from the stoic demeanor of the staff (minus the cook in the kitchen who waved for the camera), it doesn't look like they're in the mood to deal with drunken drama or theatrics. You've been warned.
