Rock and Roll Tacos Soft Opening in Photos

Last night, I attended the friends-and-family soft opening of James and Mary Anne Quiñonez’s Rock and Roll Tacos brick-and-mortar operation at LaGrange. Below is a photo catalog of the night, mostly of subpar images of the dishes prepared by Chef Gustavo Fernandez and his crackerjack team. Not included is a shot of the adult snow cone hut in the back patio. Rock and Roll Tacos officially opens to the public Thursday, May 31.
