A Dayton-favorite taco hut is making its way up north.
Victor’s Taco Shop, an authentic Mexican restaurant chain based out of Delaware, Ohio has opened its fifth location. The new shop filled the vacancy left by the former Krispy Krunchy Chicken location at 1929 E. Main St.
Owner Hector Gonzales said the restaurant focuses on fresh, fast Mexican food and provides a lot of options for diners.
“We have lots of combos,” he said. “There’s burritos, enchiladas, quesadillas and a lot more that we offer.”
Victor’s has a location in Marion, as well as three other locations in Dayton, Xenia and Huber Heights. Gonzales said a lot of fans of the restaurant have been wanting the chain to come to Springfield for a while, so when a realtor contacted him about the East Main Street location, he went for it.

“We feel really good about the customer base here,” he said. “It seemed like a good fit.”
Springfield’s location is unique, as it will be the first with a drive-thru option, as well as a sit-in dining area. Gonzales said it’s something he’s wanted to have in one of his restaurants for a while.
