Locally sourced street tacos are coming to the Speer neighborhood.

Locally sourced street tacos are coming to the Speer neighborhood.

Uno Mas Taqueria y Cantina is moving in at 730 E. Sixth Ave. in November, Eater reports. The spot was formerly Lime X, then briefly the confusingly named $5 Buck Drinkery.

And let us save you some googling: Yes, that’s across the street from Don’s. Now you have a new, easy pre-debauchery fuel option.

The original Uno Mas opened on Old South Pearl in 2013, and its owner, Patrick Mangold-White, also owns Kaos Pizzeria on South Pearl and Mas Kaos, a Kaos and Uno Mas hybrid on Tennyson Street.

For the unfamiliar, here’s a sample of the Uno Mas menu:

Pozole. Guajillo chili‏ broth, roast pork, cabbage and radish. $6.
Sea of Cortez taco. Chili rubbed sea scallops & shrimp, fresh avocado, cilantro, ranchero salsa, cotija cheese. $5.50.
Roasted Portobello taco. Roasted tomatillo salsa, avocado, pickled nopalito, crispy potato, cotija cheese. $3.
Duck Confit taco. Pickled jalapenos, scallions, mango, cotija cheese. $3.50.
Al Pastor taco. Chile de‏ arbol y pineapple marinated Duroc pork, poblano radish slaw, cotija cheese. $3.
