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
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
