Charlotte Agenda: SouthBound, the SoCal-inpsired taco bar next to Mac’s, is targeting a late September opening

The team behind Mac’s Speed Shop is putting the finishing touches on its newest concept — a Southern California-inspired taco bar.

SouthBound, located next to Mac’s on South Boulevard, is targeting a late September opening at 2433 South Boulevard.

The roughly 7,000-square-foot restaurant will anchor a larger 12,000-square-foot development likely to include additional mystery tenants that are currently under wraps.

He’ll have 10 tacos on the menu, including a vegetarian option, garnished with traditional toppings like pickled onions, lime and cilantro.

Whatever you do, don’t go asking for cheddar cheese here. Kuruc is steering away from Americanized taco interpretations, opting instead for queso añejo, queso fresco and queso chihuahua.

In the summer when corn is fresh, they’ll be making elotes (grilled Mexican-style street corn on the cob) and in the winter, they’ll switch to esquites (a creamy corn salad in a cup).

Everything — from the hot sauces and eight different salsas to the handmade tortillas — will be prepared fresh in house. He calls it “a total departure from everything available in Charlotte now.”
