After 13 years in Federal Hill, today is the last day of operation for Pop Tacos. Pop Tacos, which is located at at 17 E. Cross St., will be open until 630pm today serving its Mexican/Korean-fusion dishes.

Owners and husband and wife couple Jai and Jung Song will be retiring. Jai Song told the decision to retire was made in part due to COVID-19 and other matters.

A ‘for lease’ sign has been hanging on the storefront in recent months.

Pop Tacos got its start in Cross Street Market before moving across the street in 2016.

Pop Tacos serves Mexican favorites like tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and bowls with a Korean twist. It uses Korean marinades on the meats, and also offers Korean rice and Korean dishes, such bibimbap and soups.

Pop Tacos was a runner-up in the ‘Best Tacos’ category of SouthBMore’s Best both years the online contest took place.
