A new West Coast-style taqueria has debuted in the Loop. Located at 300 S. Wacker Dr. (between Van Buren Street and Jackson Blvd.), the new arrival is called Dos Toros Taqueria. It's also the second Chicago location of the restaurant from brothers Oliver and Leo Kremer, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The casual taqueria offers customizable burritos, bowls, quesadillas and taco plates with a choice of protein: chicken, carnitas, carne asada or seasonal vegetables. It also has gluten-free and vegan options. (You can check out the full menu here.)

With a 4.5-star rating out of four reviews on Yelp so far, Dos Toros Taqueria has already made a good impression.

"Dos Toros just opened near my office and I have already had lunch or picked up dinner from them for 3 consecutive days. Look out Chipotle, look out Qdoba, look out waistline," said Matthew K., who reviewed the new spot on May 9. "They really do have some great food and it does have a nice twist (farro as a rice option) on your standard casual dining burrito place."

Yelper Chris M. added, "Got a Chicken Plato and, while all the ingredients were great, what really set it apart was the habanero sauce. It's hard to find a sauce this spicy at these sorts of restaurants, so I'm happy to find a place that serves my food as spicy as I want it. ... Plus, I absolutely love that you can get seats by the window to enjoy the Chicago River while you eat."

Intrigued? Stop in to try it for yourself. Dos Toros Taqueria is open from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. on weekdays. (It's closed on weekends.)
