soul taco

321 N 2nd St, Richmond, VA 23219, USA

Nothing on the Soul Taco menu exceeds $5. This is very intentional on Trey Owens’ part, to make sure people can come into the restaurant with whatever they’ve got and still be able to order something. Owens and his business partners opened Soul Taco because they wanted to introduce Richmonders to unfamiliar ingredients through the familiar medium of tacos, their way of giving back to the community. But beyond the creative menu, Soul Taco also sets the bar for taking care of their employees via extremely generous tip share practices that guarantee every employee is paid a living wage.

Trey Owens

Soul Taco entrepreneur Trey Owens is on his 34th job, and the first one where he gets to be his own boss. He’s worked in 26 countries on five continents, meeting restaurateurs and learning best practices from around the world so that he could bring them right back here to Richmond.

“My mission is to introduce people to flavors they may not be familiar with by presenting them in a familiar way.”
