Mexican street food venture to fill Borrowed Bucks space

June 29, 2018

A new concept for Sioux Falls will take over the former Borrowed Bucks Roadhouse location.

Vinyl Taco will be the new tenant for the building on Western Avenue just south of the Western Mall, according to plans on file at City Hall.

It’s another offering from the Fargo-based bar and restaurant group that operates a dozen JL Beers locations, including two in Sioux Falls, and the remaining two Borrowed Bucks bars in North Dakota.

Vinyl Taco’s website describes the full-service bar and restaurant as “fresh Mexican street food, cervezas, margaritas and signature cocktails served in a vibrant, music-themed space.” The dozen-plus taco offerings range from pork belly and barbacoa to chicken tinga and crispy fish. The restaurant makes its tortillas on-site. And it’s not all tacos — there are enchiladas, chimichangas, specialty bowls and tacos molcajetes.

Borrowed Bucks closed in July 2017. Earlier this spring, the city issued a building permit for interior demolition work for the building at 3609 S. Western Ave. Warren Ackley, vice president of JL Beers Inc. and one of the co-founders of the restaurants, said in March that “something that will be exciting to see” was coming to the site. He could not be reached to talk about the plans that were filed with the city.

The first Vinyl Taco opened in Fargo in 2013, and it expanded to Grand Forks, N.D., last year in a former Borrowed Bucks space.

Like JL Beers, Vinyl Taco is open to those 21 and older. The North Dakota sites are open from 11 a.m. to midnight Monday through Saturday.
