We asked readers to let us know which construction projects in their area they were curious about, and one of the sites you asked about was a building going up on Indian School Road just east of 28th Street.

State of play: We looked into it and we've got great news — it's tacos!

Driving the news: The partially constructed building will be home to Taco Viva, co-owner James Greaves tells Axios Phoenix.

  • The restaurant will serve "traditional Mexican tacos," Greaves said, noting he lived in Mexico as a teenager and his partner, Rigo Neri, is from there.
  • Their tacos will be wrapped in homemade corn and flour tortillas, and the eatery will have indoor and outdoor seating, along with a drive-thru.

What they're saying: "We've been cooking our whole lives, so we're excited about bringing it out," Greaves says.

What to watch: Taco Viva is expected to open in January 2024.
