Considered one of the coolest streets in America, the Delmar Loop was an easy choice to launch the first Mission Taco Joint. With its bohemian vibe and local flavor there’s never a dull moment. Whether you’re checking out a show at one of the killer music venues or wandering along the St. Louis Walk of Fame perusing boutiques, MTJ is the perfect spot to catch all the action.ORDER ONLINE GIFT CARDS
Growing up in California, skating and surfing up and down the coast, inspired brothers Jason and Adam Tilford to bring their love of Cali street food to their new Midwest home. Mission Taco Joint is a culmination of their travels, experiences, and the flavors of their childhood.
MTJ’s first location opened in St. Louis’ Delmar Loop in 2013, serving West Coast style tacos and pouring beers from STL’s favorite craft breweries. Word quickly spread about the quality food and genuine hospitality and became a favorite place for students, young professionals, and families alike.
As growth continues in new locations, the brothers’ passion for family and community remains evident in their commitment to their teams. Equal rights, higher wages, paid benefits and an open dialogue with their staff are just some of the things that set them apart from other restaurant groups.
The mission continues.
