Trompo, an Oak Cliff taqueria that gained national attention in 2016, is opening a location in Old East Dallas this spring.

The location will be at 4201 Gaston Ave. near Baylor University Medical Center, according to new website for the East Dallas Trompo.

Luis Olvera opened the original Trompo in a bare-bones building on Singleton Boulevard in 2016. The eatery focused solely on tacos and quesadillas, which were so good, Bon Appetit included Trompo on its list of 50 best new restaurants in America.

In 2019, Trompo moved to the Bishop Arts district and added a few new menu items, including a slider, elote and brunch.
