FARGO – Taco Bros. is back in business, but this time in a new location and with only one brother.

After the popular food truck was shuttered for a week due to recipe disagreements between brothers Raul and Octavio Gomez, Octavio said Thursday that the family feud has come to an end.

Taco Bros. will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. today in the parking lot of the Empire in downtown Fargo for lunch, and then from 6 to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday for dinner.

Octavio said he and Raul sat down for beers at the downtown Hotel Donaldson on Wednesday and reached a resolution that allows Octavio to be sole proprietor of the business.

“We have an agreement that will allow me to continue working and feeding the masses,” he said.

Because of the difficulty of moving the trailer, though, the Empire’s parking lot is only a temporary solution for Taco Bros. Octavio is negotiating a more permanent location downtown.

Taco Bros. will join Street Chef, a new food truck run by Seattle native Jason Butters. Butters plans to open for the first time about 7 or 8 tonight, also in The Empire’s parking lot.

Street Chef will offer items such as pulled-pork sandwiches, bacon-wrapped hot dogs and other fried foods, Butters said.

Coming from the West Coast where food trucks are especially popular, Butters is excited to bring the mobile food option to Fargo.

“I thought that this area would really take to it,” he said.
