Tour Partner Spotlight: Don’t Look Back
In today’s partner spotlight, we’re going to take an inside look at one of Richmond’s most popular taco & Mexican restaurants: Don’t Look Back
Don’t Look Back quickly became a fan favorite after its opening in 2011, due to the variety of phenomenal tacos and the inexpensive, a la carte menu. But DLB is more than just tacos – it features an extensive tequila list, as well non-taco menu items such as burritos, loaded nachos, and more.
Prior to 2011, the would-be owner of Don’t Look Back managed the bar at another popular Richmond eatery, and wanted to open a restaurant of his own – preferably Mexican – but he needed someone to cook and run the kitchen. Around the same time, the owner of Nate’s Taco Truck and Nate’s Taco Truck Stop was looking to wind down his restaurant and find a larger kitchen to operate from. It was a perfect match – a restaurant looking for an excellent crafter of Mexican food, and a taco guru looking for a kitchen.
River City Food Tours Sample Item
When you visit Don’t Look Back during our Carytown Food Tour, you’re likely to sample mini versions of the popular carnitas taco and the pulled chicken taco.
Something Else To Try
When visiting DLB on your own, we recommend asking about the chicken skin tacos. If those are on the daily special menu, then you have no other choice – you must get those! If not, then order a potato taco, and you won’t be disappointed!
Don’t Look Back is located in Carytown, at 2929 W. Cary St. There is on-street parking and a nearby parking garage behind the Byrd Theatre.[inline banner] River City Food Tours provides residents and visitors a way to experience the city’s best restaurants – or at least as many as they can.
