New Taco Restaurant Coming to Pentagon Row

(Updated at 4:20 p.m.) A restaurant called “Gorilla Taco” appears to be coming to the Pentagon Row shopping center.

The new Mexican restaurant has applied for a Virginia ABC permit to serve wine and beer at 1201 S. Joyce Street.

Gorilla Taco has a Facebook page, but it lists little information except for the address and a logo.

A phone number in the permit application is a listed number for Basic Burger, which is in the process of opening a new location on Pentagon Row.

Basic Burger co-owner Jamie Mansy confirmed that Gorilla Taco will be a sister restaurant to Basic Burger and will be an “eight-month pop-up” restaurant based on a food truck the company had for special and private events. It will serve “authentic street tacos,” he said

Additional information about the the restaurant was not immediately available.
