Taco Mazama is Glasgows first Californian style Burrito Bar and Taqueria! We first opened in 2009 with the aim of bringing fresh, tasty and authentic Mexican street food to Glasgow. We now have four restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh, with a new one coming this summer to Glasgow Central Station...

TACO FACTS – DID YOU KNOW?
- That San Francisco is the self proclaimed Burrito Capital of the world? In fact there is significantly more Burrito Bars there than in Mexico City itself!
- The Burrito dates back to the 1800′s!
- An often-repeated folk history is that of a man named Juan Méndez who sold tacos in a street stand using a donkey as a transport for himself and the food. To keep the food warm, Méndez wrapped it in large homemade flour tortillas underneath a small tablecloth. As the “food of the burrito” (i.e., “food of the little donkey”) grew in popularity, “burrito” was eventually adopted as the name for these large tacos
- Another creation story comes from Ciudad Juárez, where a street food vendor created the tortilla-wrapped food to sell to poor children at a state-run middle school. The vendor would call the children his burritos, as burro is a colloquial term for dunce or dullard.
