Taco Time

A new taco experience

Tacos 4 Life’s modern and colorful interior.

The restaurant Tacos 4 Life first started in the state of Arkansas and has now made its way to Hwy K. This sit-down restaurant serves not only tacos but also soup, salads, chips and dip and more. It is open Monday-Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Ashton and Austin Samuelson, the creators of Tacos 4 Life, are helping hungry children around the world one meal at a time. Tacos 4 Life’s main goal is to help feed children who are not fortunate enough to obtain a meal easily. With every purchase, this establishment will give 24 cents to the Feed My Starving Children program. Matt and Jacy Rose, operators of the St. Louis Tacos 4 Life location, came to the realization of how many starving kids there are around the world, which pushed them to develop a Tacos 4 Life in Missouri, all according to tacos4life.com.

“We are thrilled to now serve the Greater St. Louis community with this new location and our first in the state,” Austin Samuelson said in an interview with KSDK, according to ksdk.com. “To open in a new market with new franchise partners that are aligned in our mission-focused work is even more special. We are proud to partner with individuals who truly believe in our cause that we are so passionate about, and Matt and Jacy Rose are two of those individuals.”

Some items that a person could order at Tacos 4 Life are a classic beef, chicken taco, Korean barbecue and a mango Habanero taco, along with many more varieties of tacos. Other things that can be ordered are quesadillas, rice bowls, nachos or a house salad. There is also an Ultimate Trio which includes chips, salsa, guacamole and queso. Tacos 4 Life provides many different side options, such as beans and soup. For more information about Tacos 4 Life, visit tacos4life.com.
