El Gato Taqueria

Street Taco's, Disco Fries beer and soda

The Legend of El Gato Long ago, in the guitar town of Paracho, Mexico, El Gato was the most revered of all the luchadores. As the reigning national champion of the Lucha Libre tradition, naturally El Gato was offered the opportunity to come to Akron, Ohio to wrestle for the coveted "Rust Belt Championship." Although El Gato was hesitant to leave his home country, he knew that winning the Rust Belt Championship would secure his place as the World's Best Luchadore. Upon arriving in Akron, El Gato was invigorated by the the wind chill, the lake effect snow, and the melody of snow tires in the slush. Hungry, and weary from his travels, he walked the streets of downtown to find a place to eat. Much to his dismay, there were no tacos available like the ones in Paracho. Although El Gato found nourishment while in Akron, he could not find the robust, fresh flavors of his homeland. After winning the Rust Belt Championship, El Gato was embraced by the people of Akron and treated like one of their own. Inspired by the heart and passion they had shown him, El Gato decided to repay these hard-working folks for their kindness. He knew the very thing the community of Akron needed and deserved: Authentic, Fresh, DELICIOUS Mexican Food.
