Pike’s Taqueria Poblano Aiming for Opening Next Week

The owners of Taqueria Poblano say they’re hoping to open their new Columbia Pike location by the end of next week.

Work is still underway at the restaurant, but most of the interior — including the flooring, lighting, bar, and seating — is already in place. Hiring is apparently also still underway. A “help wanted” sign posted in the window seeks cooks, dishwashers, servers, bartenders and hosts.

The eatery — located on the ground floor of the Penrose Square development, at the corner of Columbia Pike and South Adams Street — will be the third for the local Mexican chain. The other two locations are in Alexandria (2400-B Mount Vernon Avenue) and North Arlington (2503A N. Harrison Street).

Taqueria Poblano’s menu includes various types of tacos, burritos, platters and Sunday brunch items.

Eamonn’s, the Alexandria-based fish-and-chips-and-cocktails restaurant that will be going in next to Taqueria Poblano, is not expected to open until the summer, according to a spokeswoman.
