Lubbock's very first Taco Casa is highly anticipated and getting ready to open soon at 82nd and Pontiac.

Their Facebook page shares that they are hiring now, and the opening date is set for September 10th, according to Lubbock in the Loop.

We headed over to check on construction this week. It looks to still be a work in progress that is nearing completion.

Taco Casa has many locations and is popular across Texas, so you may be familiar with some of the great food they offer up. Their slogan, "Crunchy-licious," makes for some of the best TV commercials.

We'll definitely keep you posted on the progress of this long-time Texas favorite's first restaurant in Lubbock.

Welcome to Lubbock, Taco Casa!
