estrella taqueria

Is it deadpool for Toronto's largest taco restaurant?

Estrella Taqueria, the massive taco joint at Yonge and Sheppard that opened last year during the end of Toronto's taco boom, seems to have shuttered its doors for good. The restaurant, loosely inspired by Chicago's famed Big Star, never really caught on with diners, receiving mostly critical reviews for its shoddy service and uneven offerings from the kitchen.

A notice has been affixed to the front door for weeks announcing the restaurant will be closed June 2nd and 3rd but it's been all tumbleweeds since. The Twitter and Facebook have been silent, Open Table is no longer taking reservations and a call to their still-working phone number just gets you a message that their mailbox is full.

Will you miss Estrella Taqueria? Reminisce in the comments below.
