If you know downtown, you probably know where Burrito Boarder used to be—across the alley from Ruby's Elixir, and next to Top Slice Pizzeria, on the same block as Sea Dog.
Back in May, TacoSon, (over by Home Depot on 22nd Ave) decided to rebrand as Grumpy Gringo to set themselves apart from the other two TacoSons across the bridge in the Tampa area.
On my pre-dawn stroll, I noticed the Grumpy Gringo sign where Burrito Boarder used to be. They've already changed the mural. (Sorry Audrey Jennifer.)
A quick phone call confirms that this will be a second location in addition to the existing location at 2510 22nd Ave N, St. Petersburg, FL 33713.
It is the same ownership, same recipes, and most of the menu, and remains fast-casual counter service. They made our list of Ten Best Taco Places in 2018.
When asked when they will be opening, the prompt answer, "I don't know" was given. That's the first honest answer for a restaurant opening date in the history of this publication. We're guessing sooner rather than later though.
