Lardeo Taco/Credit: YelpWhen the Exxon Station/Circle K Convenience Store at 11854 Sunrise Valley Dr. is fully remodeled by the end of the summer, it will have something new.

The convenience store — which currently has many of its beverage coolers outside the store as the inside is renovated — will have Reston’s first Laredo Taco Company location.

Laredo Taco Company is a popular chain of fast casual Mexican restaurants found inside 480 Stripes convenience stores in Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico.

Laredo Taco bills itself as “fast, fun, friendly and delicious,” offering “generous portions of your favorite Mexican food, handmade with the freshest ingredients every day.” Its menu includes made-to-order breakfast tacos, beef enchiladas and beef fajitas, as well as a salsa bar.

There will be a couple of seats in the store, but mostly it is geared toward takeout, Exxon management said.

Laredo Taco Company has made a push to towards the East Coast recently, opening locations in gas stations in Ashburn and in Pennsylvania.

    Laredo Taco/Exxon : Come for the Tacos, but stay for the gas.

      good one

  • “Ummm…donuts!”

    Gas station mini-mart Fast Food Tacos and Enchiladas straight from the great state of Texas, just what our Elite Destination of Reston was missing! Why didn’t either RA or the owners of RTC think of that?
    Hey, if RA can ban e-cigarettes as a public health hazard, shouldn’t they be able to ban these gustatory taco bombs as well?

    Yay! Another chain!

    No hard shell tacos? Pass.
