Grand Rapids has no shortage of good tacos, so it's not like you'll struggle to find one until they open their doors later this spring. But, it's hard not to be excited about the latest addition to the Grand Rapids nightlife: Barrio.

Their third Michigan location is currently getting ready to roll at the Historic 37 Ottawa, and from what I can tell from the outside and social media posts: It looks really awesome.

You can easily walk up and see some of the amazing wall art starting to come to life.

And while it's going to be a little while before tables and final decorations are in place, there are a few neat things we already know about them.

For example, at every one of their locations, they try to incorporate a local musician into their signature mural. Grand Rapids ended up getting two.

One of the murals is dedicated to Verve Pipe lead singer Brian Vander Ark.

Amongst the walls you'll also spot a Kid Rock, although not from Grand Rapids, just to show a little Michigan state love. And if you love these murals, they're by Eillen Dorsey who has been sharing other sneak peeks inside the chain while working on ours.

There are a lot of things about Barrio's menu we know from their other locations. Some of the things that look the most exciting?

The Tequila

Let's be honest, a good shot is worth more than anything. Barrio is known for their tequila pours if you're looking for some place to grab a drink before an upcoming Van Andel Arena show.

Their tacos are fun and festive


Tell me you're not a little excited to have your first Taco Tuesday there... Plus their monthly specials will keep you coming back to try something new.

And you better not skip the brunch sweets


Just have one less taco, it will be worth it.
