A Street Smart Business.

Rusty Taco™ is a distinctive fast-casual taco concept that serves creative street-style tacos that are both traditional and inspired. In 2014, Buffalo Wild Wings® purchased a majority stake in the Rusty Taco concept, with plans to develop and grow the brand on a national scale. Our menu features a variety of tasty tacos at an affordable price, where each taco is hand-made fresh and fast in our open kitchen, using ingredients made from scratch. Warm chips, delicious salsas, craft beer and no-frills margaritas all served up in our welcome environment, round out the experience.

About

The original name “Rusty Taco” comes from our founder, Rusty Fenton who, along with his partner Steve Dunn, opened the first Rusty Taco in a converted gas station on Greenville Avenue in Dallas, TX in 2010. Rusty was passionate about food, especially tacos, and he finally made his dream come true when he opened this concept that offered freshly-made authentic and inspired street-style tacos. The dream got better when customers flocked to Rusty Taco and returned again and again. More restaurants soon followed, as well as a new shortened name, Rusty Taco.

Rusty Taco requires our franchisees to meet the following to own and operate a minimum of 3 Rusty Taco restaurants:

  • Liquid Capital:   $250,000
  • Net Worth:   $1,500,000+
  • Franchise Fee:  $25,000
  • Initial Start Up Costs Range:  $512,425 - $782,540
  • Royalty Fee:  Royalty 5% of gross sales
  • Demonstrated enthusiasm, drive and passion in the restaurant industry

Why Rusty Taco?

  • Demand for tacos is swelling because it's a fast, inexpensive meal with quality ingredients.
  • Menu board concepts involve low labor costs and good food value.
  • Rusty Taco is a smart choice in the current economy because it attracts diners across all income brackets.
  • Rusty Taco is unique in the market.
  • Our concept has 3 parts: breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and serves breakfast tacos all day long, a popular current trend.
