One of the popular Mexican restaurants who started out originally as a food truck has finally expanded to east Wichita. Tacos tj 664 has brought the taste of Tijuana to north Rock Road in the former Planet Sub space at 3526 N. Rock Road. We stopped by recently to check out the new digs.

The first thing I noticed about the new Tacos tj 664 east space was how much brighter it was inside. Their storefront on West Street has a darker and dimmer look. I loved the natural light that came in, especially from their patio space. The retractable garage door, facing the south side, brought a nice breeze into the restaurant.
As for the food, we’ve covered it many times and love it. We went with the birria tacos with consomé and a bowl of birria ramen. The tacos were fantastic, especially dipped in the consomé. It was very hearty and flavorful. The same went for the ramen dish. The meat came in big chunks and was extremely tender. There was no shortage of noodles. Each part of this dish complemented each other; it came together well for a delicious lunch.
We’ve given Tacos tj 664 so much love over the years and it’s all deserved. It was a worthwhile east side lunch stop and one that east siders are now lucky to have. That area of town is filled with so much Tex-Mex and fast food, that it’s nice to have this variation of Mexican food available now.
Here’s their menu:
