Construction continues on Miguelito's Taqueria and Tequila.

After opening his restaurant, Miguel's Mexican Seafood Restaurant and Grill, 23 years ago, owner Miguel Rodriguez is expanding to include a new concept, Miguelito's Taqueria Y Tequila.

Located just 0.3 miles away from the original concept, the new restaurant will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Breakfast will feature tacos, tortas (Mexican sandwiches), cafe con leche, platters including an American style breakfast, a variety of pancakes and more.

"The concept will change throughout the day," Rodriguez said. "We will offer a breakfast menu which a majority will be grab 'n' go, with a sit-down option available."

Lunch and dinner is where the taqueria comes into play.

Diners can choose from pork belly tacos, barbacoa, burritos and bowls, as well as healthy options within those items.

"It's really going to be different from Miguel's," Rodriguez said. "Some flavors will be recognized, but our corn and flour tortillas will be prepared at that moment, just minutes before eating your taco."

During dinner, Mexican-style tapas will take-up the menu.

Small plates will be served with tequila on tap.

"We are the only one, that I know of, in Tampa, that offers tequila on tap," Rodriguez said. "It will be dispensed at below five degrees. We may also offer a martini, a vodka martini that will be dispensed as well."

A soft opening followed by a grand opening is planned for the middle of December at 2702 W Kennedy Blvd.
