Downtown Macon now home to new taco shop

Ricky’s Taco Shop moved to the heart of downtown Macon at 518 Cherry Street

MACON, Ga. — A new taco shop sits cradled between Comics Plus and Travis Jean Emporium in downtown Macon.

Ricky’s Taco Shop used to be located on Mercer University Drive, but it has moved to the heart of downtown Macon at 518 Cherry Street, where Doughboy Pizza used to be.

The restaurant had its grand opening on Tuesday.

On its second day open, the line was almost out the door just 45 minutes after it opened at 11 a.m.

A post on the taco shop's Facebook page says they had to close early after selling out of food on Thursday night

"We'll use these last two months of the year to figure out several things, to see what's wrong, where we can improve, what can we do to make everything just right," a post on the taco shop's Facebook page stated.

Latin music classics play on speakers throughout the taco shop. Customers who have posted reviews on the restaurant's page say Ricky's has authentic cuisine.

"Biggest burritos ever and every flavor jarrito you can think of. Tacos and street corn was delicious. Bigger and better now downtown," Chris Patat said. 

"Best Mexican food in the city, if not the state. Ricky and his team make you feel at home, and the fresh ingredients and authentic recipes would put any abuela to shame," Jamie Helms wrote.
