Jimboy’s Tacos, home of the Original American Taco, has celebrated the Grand Opening of its newest Orange County location at 2435 Imperial Highway in Brea, CA on Tuesday, August 28, 2018.
The Brea location is the second Jimboy’s Tacos to open in Orange County this summer and is the third in the county overall, which includes stores in Anaheim and Huntington Beach.
As a token of appreciation to their new community, Jimboy’s Tacos Brea partnered with Brea-based nonprofit, Together We Rise, for an in-store fundraiser on Wednesday, August 29. On that day, 20% of all proceeds were donated back to the nonprofit organization, which works to improve the lives of children in foster care through collaborating with community partners, like Jimboy’s Tacos, to raise money to provide resources for foster youth and to educate volunteers on issues surrounding the foster care system.
“After experiencing the success we’ve had with our Huntington Beach location, we have no doubt that the newest Jimboy’s Tacos in Brea will be well-received by the community,” said Angulo and Romero. “With the Irvine opening also on the immediate horizon, we are excited to be growing with the Jimboy’s Tacos brand and making the concept more accessible to those throughout Southern California.”
Jimboy’s Tacos first opened nearly 65 years ago as a simple food trailer on the shores of Lake Tahoe, CA. With sights set on serving the best tasting taco on the planet, founder Jim “Jimboy” Knudson created the Original Ground Beef Taco, which has not changed since it was first served in 1954, and remains the brand’s most popular menu item. The iconic taco, which Food Network star Guy Fieri has called a ‘guilty pleasure’ taco, is made fresh at each Jimboy’s Tacos location with seasoned ground beef, freshly shredded cheese, and lettuce encased in a crispy, stone-ground corn shell dusted with parmesan cheese.
Jimboy’s has also earned viral popularity and social media fame for its Taquito Burrito, a signature grilled burrito stuffed with three taquitos, which has received over 25 million views on social media to date and garnered worldwide attention. The Taquito Burrito mash-up has led to the creation of a revolutionary “Craft Your Own Mash-Up” section of the Jimboy’s menu. Other menu items include loaded burritos, fresh salads, shareable bites like queso and chips, and several breakfast items.
