Meritage Hospitality Group is opening its third Stan’s Tacos location this month.

The Grand Rapids-based restaurant company said Tuesday, Nov. 16, it will open a Stan’s Tacos location at 67 Ottawa Ave. SW in downtown Grand Rapids on Monday, Nov. 29.

The other two Stan’s locations are in Walker and Grand Haven.

“Our latest Stan’s Tacos has an upbeat beach party atmosphere where our guests can enjoy great tacos and margaritas with family and friends,” said Gary Rose, Meritage’s president and COO. “We are excited to open Stan’s Tacos in downtown Grand Rapids reimagined with bright, vibrant colors, murals and beach décor.”

Stan’s Tacos offers an a la carte-style taco menu that includes a variety of popular Mexican dishes scratch-made from fresh ingredients, as well as a “lively” atmosphere with music and colorful art.

Local artist and Mural by Design owner Sotir Davidhi created a large wall mural for the interior, as well as several other pieces throughout the space.

Alongside its classic margarita, Stan’s features flavored margaritas, including blackberry, blood orange, coconut, jalapeno, mango and strawberry, as well as blackberry red sangria and mango peach white sangria. Margaritas and sangria are available for to-go pickup.

Following the Grand Rapids opening, Meritage plans to expand Stan’s Tacos throughout West Michigan.

Stan’s is hiring at all locations, including servers, cooks, hosts and dishwashers. Candidates can apply online.

The hours for Stan’s Tacos in downtown Grand Rapids will be 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday.
