You won’t have to go all the way to Dallas for some late-night tacos. Velvet Taco will open its first standalone Plano location this coming spring. Known for its unique taco creations, like the chicken tikka masala taco and the chicken and waffle taco, Velvet Taco is a popular spot among Dallasites. Its Plano location will be the seventh in DFW.

Earlier this year, Velvet Taco made news in Plano when it set up a miniature version of the store in Legacy Hall. The Legacy Hall food stall is expected to remain open following the opening of Plano’s full store.

The new Plano location is expected to have all of the same fan favorites. It is also expected to be open late, as Velvet Taco’s original Knox-Henderson location is open until 4 a.m. Fans of Velvet Taco will also be able to order Velvet Taco’s secret backdoor chicken dinner. The backdoor chicken is a rotisserie chicken that comes with tortillas, elote and salsa, and it is available for purchase by handing the drive-thru operator $20. On Mondays, you can get this deal for only $10.
