After success in St. Petersburg and Manatee counties, Poppo’s Taqueria is set to open its doors in downtown Tampa on Aug. 16. Because of limited staffing, the new location will only be open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., but will be offering the full menu during those hours. Once the restaurant is fully staffed, hours will expand to 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

“For years, residents of the greater Tampa Bay area have been visiting our flagship location on Anna Maria Island,” said owner Casey Coleman. “We are super hyped to bring our food to them (in Tampa) now.”

The fast-casual restaurant, inspired by an eclectic San Francisco neighborhood with Latin heritage, will offer Mexican street food.
