Fort Taco to open another location in St. Charles

St. Charles will have a new fast and easy taco joint this summer. Fort Taco, slated to open July 1 will be located at 3788 Elm St., in the old Daylight Donuts space.

Co-owner Elizabeth Sedlock said there was high demand for the Mexican-American eatery. “We got tons of requests to open a location in St. Charles,” she said.

The menu will feature the same three signature items as the flagship location in Brentwood: a Puffer Taco (a fried flour shell filled with ground beef or chicken), an Enchee (an enchilada-like pocket stuffed with potatoes, peas and cheese) and a tamales with house-made masa, chicken and ancho chile sauce.

The 1,000-square-foot space holds 20 seats inside, while there are 16 seats available outside and a drive-thru. Fort Taco will be open Monday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. The drive-thru will be open until 10 p.m. in the summer through September.
