Taco Land under new ownership – Hollywood style

Taco Land was pure San Antonio and the same can be said about the two individuals now invested in the property — except that one also brings a hint of Hollywood.

From the local bands that blasted rock 'n' roll from the disheveled bar's cramped stage to its harsh, yet warm, owner, the late Ramiro “Ram” Ayala, one thing about Taco Land is that it gave people a platform for expression. And although the new owners aren't looking to develop the property themselves, they do hope it will have elements of music and art. Tacoland Studios LLC is made up of Ricardo Chavira, who plays Carlos Solis, the husband of Eva Longoria's character on Desperate Housewives, and David Adelman, a principal at Cross & Co., a local development firm. Taking his first crack at a commercial real estate venture, Chavira approached Adelman, a high school friend, earlier this year about the property, which is assessed at $190,000, according to the Bexar Appraisal District. Both men noticed how the area around the Pearl Brewery has turned around in recent years, and they wanted to build upon that.
