David Posadas owns and op­er­ates Taco Crave.

David grew up in Mon­ter­rey Mex­ico and out­side his mid­dle school was a taco stand. It was the first street ta­cos he ever had and he said it was love at first bite. He re­mem­bers the taste de­lights, the com­bi­na­tion of fla­vors, the juicy meats, spicy sal­sas and fresh tor­tillas. He be­gan to crave those de­li­cious ta­cos. As a mid­dle schooler David dreamed of ta­cos and he still has those same dreams to­day!

David had a dual pass­port and was able to travel back and forth from Mex­ico to Hous­ton. His grand­mother and un­cle owned a restau­rant in Bryan Texas that had been in the fam­ily for over 60 years. His un­cle would give him ad­vice like “if you sell some­thing, make it some­thing you like!” He would spend sum­mers at the fam­ily restau­rant help­ing and learn­ing about the restau­rant busi­ness.

David ma­jored in In­dus­trial Engi­neer­ing and got a job do­ing metal fab­ri­ca­tion in a fac­tory in North­ern Mex­ico. He never was ful­filled in that job. He says Amer­ica has bet­ter op­por­tu­ni­ties for big dream­ers and more doors can open if you be­lieve in your­self. He moved to Hous­ton to bring his vi­sion of great Mex­i­can street ta­cos to our streets, Al­though, of course, it didn’t hap­pen overnight. David had sev­eral restau­rant jobs here where he im­proved his craft and learned more about his trade.

In 2014, he opened the first Taco Crave restau­rant with the fla­vors he and his wife had been per­fect­ing. When you walk in all the de­li­cious fla­vors awaken your senses. His din­ing room and kitchen are al­ways clean. And he of­fers sam­ples of his slowly stewed meats and even of­fers free beer. That’s right FREE BEER! What goes bet­ter with great ta­cos than free beer? Then his friendly staff rolls your taco or burrito with what­ever meats and condi­ments you like. The food is al­ways pre­pared fresh and just the way you want

it.

He tells me he wants to have a place where peo­ple can eat well and have fun. He greets and en­joys talk­ing to ev­ery­one, when he is not there, his guests ask about him. He says he never had this much fun at the metal fac­tory. Af­ter 3 years, David just opened his sec­ond Taco Crave lo­ca­tion in Bryan, in the same build­ing where
