Woman-Owned Taco Shop Years in the Making Opens in Little Italy

Nine years ago, a dream for Taylor Mason began when she served her first taco at her father's 55th birthday party.

Today, she's the proud co-owner of the newest restaurant on Taylor Street, Taylor's Tacos.

"I’m just so grateful," Mason told NBC Chicago.

"It took two years to perfect the recipe," said Mason. "I loved street-style tacos, but I wanted to add my own spin on it."

Born and raised on the West Side of Chicago, Mason says her love for street tacos flourished while attending college in southern California.

She met her future wife, Maya, in 2016. Two years later, they both quit their jobs to pursue a taco catering business full-time.

They got their start at the Hatchery, an incubator kitchen, in East Garfield Park.
