The northeast side of Cedar Rapids will be home to the city's first location for Fuzzy's Taco Shop, the outdoor signage is already hung. Fuzzy's will be located in the new Water Rock development on the southeast corner of Blairs Ferry Road and Rockwell Drive N.E., where a sign in the parking lot shows only one vacancy remains. After doing some research, I can't wait 'til Fuzzy's doors are flung open for the first time.

Fuzzy's Taco Shop

I've never been to a Fuzzy's Taco Shop before but there are several things catching my attention. First of all, I'm a fan of tacos AND feta cheese. I don't typically eat them together, I guess because it never really occurred to me. It has to Fuzzy's, though.

If that doesn't float your boat, look at this:


Fuzzy's also has quesadillas, full dinners, burritos, burrito bowls, breakfast (they open at 10 a.m.), and a kids menu. They didn't forget dessert, either... cinnamon-sugar and Oreo churros are both on the menu.

This type of food and adult beverages go together and Fuzzy's obviously has a bit of flare when it comes to their drinks. Tell me a strawberry/champagne margarita doesn't look delish:

I guess you could say "bottled drinks" are kind of their thing:

Fuzzy's Taco Shop definitely has a sense of humor, too.

How long must I wait? I had to know, so I called the corporate office. They tell me the Cedar Rapids Fuzzy's Taco Shop will open in late August or early September. In the meantime, we can visit the Coralville location that opened earlier this year. It's getting wonderful reviews on Google, to the tune of 4.3 out of a possible five stars. I think a road trip is in order... I don't think I can wait two months.
