“Vatos Urban Tacos sprang from the minds (and bellies) of three Korean-Americans who wanted to offer a new type of dining experience in Korea. Kenny and Sid hail from Southern California, and Juweon planted his roots in Texas; hence, all three spent the majority of their lives growing up on authentic Mexican food. Simultaneously, all three were fed a steady diet of home-made Korean food lovingly prepared by their first generation mothers.

“Pick up your fried chicken on the way to the park and have it as your picnic the Korean way or bring your own picnic. There's a sandy playground and a spray park for kids, and plenty of shade so it's a good place to go for a picnic in the summer. In the warmer months, there is often live music and wedding ceremonies on the weekends. ”
