Tacos Impala Opens up on H St, NE

Thanks to J.T. for sharing the news and photos. He writes, “New Taco Stand on @HstreetDC where the Water Ice place used to be.”

Frozen Tropics has a bit more info on the space located at 1204 H St, NE:

“Tacos Impala is a new taco stand venture from two guys who are no strangers to H Street. Right now the menu is carnitas, braised beef, or bean and cotija cheese, tacos. Tacos run $3 each, and you can wash them down with a Mexican Coke, or Jarritos. Open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Late night hours on weekends.”

Reminds me a bit of Tomatillo Taqueria served out of Big Hunt in Dupont.

  • To be clear, Philadelphia Water Ice isn’t gone, it’s just not open in the winter (although I heard last night that they’re going to start selling cheesesteaks out of there with the taco guys this winter – I don’t know how that’s going to work, but it sounds exciting). But, come next summer, Water Ice will be back. (Rita’s is now also closed for the year.)

  • I want an impala taco. And a cheetah chimichanga.

  • tacos are the new cupcake.

  • tacos are food. cupcakes are a luxury…that make you sick when you’ve had more than one.

  • luxury!? Have you ever been to Mexico?

  • ok people – let’s not get into a fight over tacos and cupcakes….

    but taco stands are the new thing on the east coast right now(although they have been around for quite some time out on the west coast)….it’s good to see H Street (my hood) expanding its mix of food offerings….

  • I just took my son to Tacos Impala on Friday and it was a HUGE hit. We each had two and would have loved to have eaten two more. I want a TI to open in Alexandria. I can only imagine how great they would taste late night:)
