As I teased back in July, BB Junction is vacating the original 4 Rivers Smokehouse location on Fairbanks Avenue and a taco concept is moving in.
Hunger Street Tacos has been operating as a catering unit for the past two years. The owners hope to achieve with tacos what John Rivers did with barbecue. (Indeed, a brisket taco is one of their featured menu items.)
BB Junction opened at the address in 2012.
Rivers originally opened his then-new barbecuerie in 2009 and quickly outgrew the space, a former service station at 2103 W. Fairbanks Avenue in Winter Park. Also, the popularity of 4 Rivers caused problems with parking, with hordes of diners roaming the surrounding neighborhood looking for spaces.
Of course, Hunger Street’s owners would love to duplicate that problem.
Details on target date and other information coming soon.
