Little Bites: Worthy Opening Second Location


1 comment

This spring Worthy Brewing will open a second restaurant, Taps and Tacos, in downtown Bend, focusing on Worthy beer and Tex-Mex tacos. Worthy's owner, Roger Worthington, hails from Texas and wanted to bring Tex-Mex, his favorite style of Mexican food, to Central Oregon.

To ensure flavor authenticity, Worthy sent Executive Chef, Dirk Baxter, to Austin and San Antonio to research the cuisine at noted restaurants including Chuy's, Ztejas and Fuego.

"Being able to research the food from the source will allow us to bring true Tex-Mex cuisine to Central Oregon—cuisine that is true in style, ingredients, and pleasing to the palate," said Baxter. Worthy Taps and Tacos will seat up to 40 guests and have some outdoor patio seating. The bar will feature their standard beers along with experimental and one-off beers from their Heart and Soul Series. Worthington says, "Everybody loves tacos and beer," and while that has some some truth to it, we'll have to wait until March to enjoy them at Taps and Tacos.
