Los Ocampo opens fast-casual restaurant in City Center

Twin Cities-based Los Ocampo has opened a quick-service taqueria in City Center.

Los Ocampo Express serves customizable Mexican street food, from tacos and quesadillas to pozole and machete. The fast-casual restaurant serves each dish with one or several of the 10 meat options and several salsa options. Diners choose their own vegetables, cheese and other toppings.

The skyway version of the local restaurant chain offers several recognizable dishes and beverages for Los Ocampo regulars. Diners can wash down the marinated meat-filled tacos or machete — a masa cake filled with meat and cheese — with horchata or Mexican sodas.

Los Ocampo Express, at 40 S. 7th St., is open 11 a.m.–6 p.m. Monday through Friday. It occupies the former Baja Sol space next door to Leeann Chin, Cardigan Donuts and Naf Naf Grill, just above the City Center atrium.
