Gabriela Bucio is the founder and co-owner of Taquero Mucho, as well as several other restaurants, bars, and nightclubs across the city including Gabriela’s, Mala Vida, and Revival Coffee.
Taquero Mucho is a popular taqueria concept on West 5th (508 West Ave, Austin, TX 78701). Since opening in February 2020, the Latina-owned restaurant has become well-known for its pink and feminine-friendly design, as well as highly-instagrammable menu items.
Taquero Mucho was created because Gabriela wanted a local spot for women to feel empowered and to be celebrated just for being themselves. Through a major overhaul of the entire space in partnership with Unhinged Studio, a boutique woman-owned design firm based in Austin, Gabby helped to personally redesign the space with its unapologetically pink color scheme. In addition to design and branding, Gabriela helped curate the cocktail menu based on recipes from her home in Michoacán, Mexico but with a fun and creative twist. She also creates the music playlists played in-restaurant – including her own remix of “Body” from Megan Thee Stallion under the DJ alias Gabby Got It.
Taquero Mucho’s most popular drink is the “Anti B Juice”, a strawberry-flavored frosé, in addition to several CBD-inspired cocktails that feature a fellow local and woman-owned business, Indigo Smart Cafe.
