RIVERVIEW — For 28 years, Mike Self Sr. and his wife, Judy, tossed New York-style pizzas and served wet tacos at S&S Tacos/Pizza and Stuff in Ruskin. As the restaurant grew into a local landmark, they expanded the business to Riverview.

Now Self's son, Mike Self Jr., and his wife, Stacy, are giving the family business a new look after taking over operations using much of the same equipment. Gone are the two standalone locations along with the pizza part of the menu.

As of February, S&S Tacos is strictly Tex Mex at its new location at 10106 McMullen Loop Road inside the Chevron gas station in Riverview off of Boyette Road.

Stacy, who has spent the past decade helping market for S&S, thinks the new restaurant will be more convenient to residents of FishHawk, Bloomingdale and the surrounding communities. With less overhead, she also expects greater success.

"The most important thing at the end of the day is that Mike and I want to impact our community in a bigger way," she said.

The Selfs call the move a step of faith and say the business is dedicated to God.

S&S delivers and offers catering. Menu items include the nacho pie for $6.80 along with salads, burritos, enchiladas and dinners ranging from a $4.70 hard taco to $11.10 wet Monterrey, a 2-pound burrito smothered with chili and melted cheese.

Call (813) 677-8226 for call-ahead, delivery or to apply for the open cashier position.

The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and closed on Sunday.
