Duo’s Taqueria Transports You to Mexico

When I first heard that Duo’s Taqueria was owned by Duolingo, a language-learning app, I was skeptical. I thought the restaurant might be gimmicky, and the food would be uninspiring. I’m happy to report this is not the case. The entire menu is sensational and bursting with flavor.


Duo’s Taqueria is an inventive way for patrons to practice their Spanish with their servers and get a taste of Mexico City. Don’t worry if you can’t speak any Spanish; servers will happily take your order in English too.


Duo’s Taqueria first opened in 2022 as a takeout window. It wasn’t until this past May that they became a full-service restaurant helmed by Marcella Ogrodnik. Ogrodnik formerly worked at Cure and then opened Cafe Agnes, a pop-up that served fantastic pupusas and tamales.
