Starting today, George Lopez tacos can be delivered to your home if you live in the San Mateo and San Francisco areas.
Not by the comedian actor himself, but through a virtual restaurant called Nextbite that works with local restaurants to handle the cooking and usual delivery services.
The nationwide rollout on Tuesday spanned locations from New York to Chicago to Los Angeles, where Lopez was born and raised.
George Lopez Tacos is a deconstructed, self-made taco concept. You choose your protein – chicken tinga, carnitas, or beef ranchero verde – and your meal consists of shredded meat, corn tortillas, salsa verde, roasted jalapeños, onions, coriander, and lime wedges. A spicier option adds avocado crema and roasted peppers and onions.
You can order side dishes of guacamole, salsa, and chips. For dessert, there are churro canapes with a chocolate dip.
“I think it’s really great that Nextbite is helping small businesses like local family-owned restaurants generate more revenue and thrive by fulfilling the orders,” Lopez said in a statement.
This isn’t his first foray into the culinary industry. He owns a restaurant called George Lopez’s Chingon Kitchen in the San Manuel Rockin ‘Casino in San Bernardino County and George Lopez’ Tequila Lounge in the Gila River Hotel & Casino in Arizona.
Lopez is the second celebrity in recent months to start a haunted restaurant in the Bay Area. In February, Food Network star Guy Fieri launched Flavortown Kitchen with meals prepared by the Buca di Beppo restaurants in Campbell and Palo Alto.
