This Sunday, August 29 is the final day of service at The Green Spot on North Buckner for Good2Go Taco. The popular Lakewood chef-driven taco stand will move to a much larger space at 1146 Peavy Road, less than two miles away.
The bad news is that the move will require some downtime for Good2Go, but co-owner Jeana Johnson says she and fellow chef/owner Colleen O’Hare are “pushing hard” for a speedy turnaround.
“We’re hoping that it’s not more than a month,” she says, estimating the reopening for the beginning of October.
On the upside, the new space will be much bigger than the current back room area at the Green Spot, all the better to accommodate an enthusiastic and growing fan base. (A recent feature on the Food Network is just the latest in series of media thumbs-ups for Good2Go.) At 2400 square feet, it will seat approximately 60 guests.
An expanded menu will also debut after the hiatus, but Johnson is mum on the details as of now.
In the meantime, Good2Go is accepting volunteers for a variety of jobs that will need to be completed throughout the course of the move. Such a community effort is definitely in keeping with the restaurant’s local, “farm to taco” approach.
Several regulars have already helped with demolition, and Johnson says assistance would be appreciated in other areas, including painting and landscaping. She emphasizes that the restaurant-to-be has been vacant for eight years, resulting in a long laundry list of pre-opening to-do’s.
