“We have enjoyed a successful six years at that location, but in that time, have seen the restaurant landscape change considerably,” co-owner Josh Holderness said in a news release. “My partners and I felt that this was the right time to bring a new and original concept to the neighborhood and revive the legend of El Guapo. We’re excited to introduce West Des Moines to the tequila and taco experience.”

El Guapo’s Tequila + Tacos is expected to open in early October.
